Membership Requests & Renewals

CARC LogoCARC Privacy Policy  |  CARC Code of Conduct  |  Membership Requests & Renewals

Membership in the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club is open to those with an interest in promoting & operating amateur radio in accordance with all Federal, state, and local laws & regulations. If you have an interest in joining (or renewing), please download the membership application from the link below.  You are welcome to review the application by scrolling further down the page.

The membership year begins on January 1.  Memberships not paid by the end of March each year are delinquent and subject to being removal.

The same form is used for new membership requests as well as renewal requests.  You must sign and return the two-page form and make appropriate payment.  You may mail the completed & signed form along with your check or you may bring it to a club meeting and present to our club treasurer, Jim Knight.  If desired, you may pay with a credit or debit card during a meeting; however, there will be up to a $2.00 charge added to defray the cost of credit card processing.  Payments by checks are not subject to this processing fee.

As a service to those desiring membership in the ARRL, you may request new ARRL membership along with your application to the CARC. ARRL Renewals are handled directly between the ARRL and the ARRL member. As an ARRL-sanctioned club, the CARC strongly encourages membership and support of the ARRL as they are our national voice on topics & issues that affect amateur radio in the United States.
