Membership in the Amateur Radio Club at Georgia Tech is open to students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the Georgia Institute of Technology. As well, membership is extended to Amateur Radio Operators not affiliated with Tech in the Atlanta area. Annual dues are $24 for students, $33 for non-students. When you become a member, you then receive access to the various functions of our repeater, operating privileges in our shack, and the opportunity to provide input to the future direction of W4AQL.
To join, simply come by one of our meetings on the second Monday of every month school is in session and fill out a brief membership application. We'll introduce you to the rest of the club, show you how to use the various equipment in the shack, and answer any questions you may have. After one semester you may obtain a key to the shack so that you may operate in between classes or at night, when there wouldn't be anyone else in the shack.
Another benefit to membership is subscription to our e-mail list, where announcements and other messages are posted. In the past, job offerings have been sent to the list, as have items for sale, and 2 or 3 times a semester a member of the club will let everyone know about a contest or event they are working, providing you with the opportunity to see a new aspect of Amateur Radio or continue to work on your awards. There are many benefits to joining, so stop by one of our meetings, held on the second Monday of the month.
If you are interested in joining, please fill out an application and bring it, with your dues, to a meeting.
