Who can Join
Anyone is welcome to be a member of our club. If you share some interests with us, please consider getting involved. All that's required is a few bucks and a quick email to the secretary.
If you're attending one of our training weekends, you're eligible to have your first years' fees waived: Go ahead and join up as soon as you've paid your deposit! Make the most of the club members and facilities to get you through your exam.
- Work out your membership type
- Apply in writing
- Pay your fees
Once we've processed your application we'll ask for a few details for our register of members. We're an incorporated society, so there are occasional formal reasons we may need to contact you, such as notification of special and annual general meetings.
We have two categories of membership.
- Full members are qualified amateur radio operators in New Zealand, and are members of our parent body NZART.
- Associate members can be anyone with an interest in radio, electronics, or anything else the club is involved with. If you're attending our training, this is you!
To be a full member you must hold a GAOC and maintain a current membership with NZART. You're welcome to join as an associate member if you don't meet these criteria. An associate membership is limited only in that associates may not vote (at, say, an AGM, but we do want you to be involved and we treat you like a full member!) or be officers of the club.
Obviously we do encourage our associates to attend our GAOC classes and get qualified though!
To join the club you are required to apply in writing the secretary (art) nsrc (dort) nz (subject: Membership%20Application) (the secretary). These days an email to will suffice. The following letter is here or your copy/paste pleasure. Please take advantage of it.
Please pay by the appropriate membership fee by direct deposit. Our bank details:
