Club Membership

Club Membership
Membership in the Murray Amateur Radio Club is free and open to all. Even though the club is dedicated to Murray City, we are happy to have active members who live outside of the city. All are welcome to come to the club meetings and to participate on the web site and in club activities. Most importantly, you do not have to already be an amateur radio operator to join the club! If you are curious about amateur radio and have some interest in learning about it, come to the club meetings and we'll teach you what you need to know so you can get licensed.

Club members have access to some information on the web site that non-members do not get access to (information about other club members, for example). The club offers memberships at several levels:

  • Guest Members - have access to view most information on the web site and to comment on web site posts
  • Affiliate Members - do not live in Murray City, but are otherwise fully participating members in the club
  • Members - live in Murray City and are fully participating members in the club
  • Charter Members - have been involved with the club since it's early days... otherwise exactly the same as Members

Club Dues and Fees
Dues are not required to be a member of the club. Occasionally, club members will be asked to contribute to a general fund that is used for covering costs related to the operation of the club or its resources (repeaters, club-owned radios, supplies, etc.).


Registration as a member of the club is separate from the web site registration.  There are also some mailing lists that you might want to join and registration for them is also handled separately.  See the Mailing Lists page for more information on the club mailing lists.

If you would like to register for access to the web site, you can do so at the Registration Page.  Please enter a valid e-mail address as your initial password will be sent by e-mail.  If you have a call sign, please enter that in the appropriate field.  This registration will allow you to comment on posts and pages.  If you are also a club member, your site membership will be updated accordingly (it may take a few days for this to happen... you'll get an e-mail from the site when it does).

If you want to join the club, please fill out the form below.

Enter your FCC issued call sign. If you do not have a call sign (yet), you can leave this field blank.
Enter the best e-mail address for you. Some people set up a special e-mail address just for ham radio use. If you want to do this, do so BEFORE filling in this form.
Enter your address, city, state, zip and any other information needed to get postal mail to you.
Enter the best phone number to reach you.
Check this box if the number supplied above is a cell phone number and you are okay with receiving text messages. Leave it unchecked if not.
Check this box if it is okay for your address, e-mail, and phone number to be published in the club roster (ONLY CLUB MEMBERS CAN SEE THIS INFORMATION). If you do not want to be included in the club directory, uncheck this box.
For our Sunday evening radio net, do you want to be listed in the roll call? If you do not plan to check in to the net very often, uncheck this box, you can still check in as a visitor whenever you can. Also, if you are willing to act as net control for this net periodically, check the appropriate box. Most people on the net have acted as net control at least once... it isn't hard and gives you valuable experience.
Check the appropriate boxes indicating your willingness to help in an emergence (such as an earthquake, flood, or other natural disaster) and your affiliations with ARES and RACES, if any. If you have taken CERT training, please check that box, too.
Include any additional information you think would be helpful to us here. If you have changed e-mail addresses, put a note here including your old e-mail address. If you have already registered for a web site account, let us know your username here. If you have any questions about the form and/or process for keeping the roster up to date, put them here and we'll get back to you.
