KD0MMG at Field DayMembership in the AARC is open to anyone with an interest in Amateur Radio.  To be eligible to be elected as an officer or board member of the AARC the member must be current on their dues, hold a current amateur radio license and must be at least 18 years old.  Only licensed members may vote on any issue.
All applications must be on our official membership application.   

If you have received your first license in the last 12 months, the AARC will waive your dues for you first year's membership as our way of saying congratulations and to help you get involved in this great hobby.  Please bring it to an AARC meeting (or mail it to the club) along with your CSCE or a copy of your your brand new license.  (Only newly licensed amateur radio operators are eligible for the free year's membership and are able to submit their application electronically)  

The current dues structure is:

Regular  Member $20
Spouse Member (must be the spouse of a Regular member) - $4
Minor Dependent (must be the legal dependent of a Regular member) - $4
Student Member (must be a full time student in high school or accredited college) - $8 

Click here to download the membership form and get involved in the best club in the area. 

This form can only be emailed if you are a newly licensed ham (within the last 12 months) making you eligible for a free membership.   This is due to an AARC ByLaws restriction that requires the member to be voted on by the membership before payment is accepted.  This means that at this time all other new applications must be by mail or in person.

 New and exsisting members are encouraged to read the ByLaws of the club.  The bylaws guide the club in many things. They define the membership classes, the number of officers and board of directors.  The standing committees that keep the club activities going foward.  from the purpose of the club to the duties of the officers and committees.     The bylaws were last updated in 2012 and a PDF copy is available by clicking the link below.

Renew Your DuesYou can now renew your dues online via PayPal.

This option is ONLY available to renew your membership if you are currently a member in the Ak-Sar-Ben Amateur Radio Club.
This method cannot be used for new applicants, or anyone who was not a member since 2018 

If your membership has lapsed (per the bylaws to remain current dues must be paid by March 1st of each year) after two years of inactivity (this would mean you have not paid dues since 2018) your name is removed from the primary roster.  If that is the case for you please resubmit a membership application with your dues to the club's address or bring it to a club meeting.  

Also, per the bylaws, new members must submit a membership application and be voted upon by the club membership before we deposit your payment.  At that time it was decided not to accept payment for new members via the online method.
