How the American Radio Club can support your local club

Local amateur radio clubs are critical for the future and growth of amateur radio. The American Radio Club does everything possible to support and help grow local amateur radio clubs.

If you are a member or leader of a local amateur radio club, here is how the American Radio Club can support you:

There is no cost to your club to join as an ARC affiliate.

Signup is completely free of charge for your club, and there is no obligation for all of your members to join the American Radio Club. 

This is an added benefit you can offer to your club members who will now get a discount on their American Radio Club membership, and a benefit to your club as you will receive $15 per member per year. Every year.
