Join or Renew ARRL Membership

When you join ARRL or renew your membership through RATS instead of going to ARRL directly, RATS receives a small one-time commission payment.  This is a benefit of our status as an ARRL Affiliated Club.  For each completed new member application processed through RATS, the club collects a one-time commission payment of $20.  For each renewal, we get $5.  Every little bit helps!

If you wish to join ARRL under a special rate (Family, Student, Blind, or Lifetime membership) please apply directly with ARRL.

If you are applying for (or renewing) an ARRL Standard membership, keep reading!
