About The First State Amateur Radio Club

The purpose of the First State Amateur Raio Club is to facilitate the exchange of information and cooperation among members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism and individual operational efficiency, and to conduct club programs and activities that advance the general interest and welfare of amateur radio in the community.

Prospective members are eligible to apply for club membership after attending three club functions. On or after the third function, the applicant shall submit a letter to the Secretary stating his qualification and desires to enter the club. The membership will then vote on the application at the earliest general club meeting.

Licensed Amateur Radio operators qualify for full membership, while non-licensed individuals may apply for an associate membership, which is convertible to full membership once an Amateur Radio license is attained.

Regular meetings are held the fourth Thursday of each calendar month, except during November and December when meetings take place a week earlier to void conflicts with the holidays.

The Meeting Dates & Locations page provide the current meeting schedule and location information.

Annual dues of $20.00 are due on January 1. Memberships whose dues are not paid by the April meeting will be considered inactive.

New members joining after the October meeting will be assessed dues on a prorated basis for the balance of the year.

The First State Amateur Radio Club sponsors the Delaware QSO Party, which takes place the first full weekend in February, and participates in the ARRL's Field Day event, taking place the fourth full weekend in June.
