The Great Lakes Radio Club Incorporated offers either Full or Distant membership,
the grade appropriate depending on the distance at which an applicant
resides from the club’s meeting place, and therefore the extent to which
participation in monthly meetings or other club activities, other than
on-air contact, is practical. This does not mean, of course, that
there is any reason why a distant member should not attend any of these
events if the opportunity offers.
There is no joining fee and membership fees for the following twelve months
are set each year at the Annual General Meeting. Financial
membership is from 1st August to 31st July of the following year. The Distant Member
fee has been fixed at 50% of the Full Member fee. The current Full Member
fee is $20 and the Distant Member fee $10.
The funds raised in this way are used to cover various recurring administrative
costs. Any surplus is applied to the maintenance, construction or purchase of new
station equipment. Travelling expenses for visits to the amateur repeater site at
Cabbage Tree Mountain, a round trip of 180 km., also have to be met.
A list of current members may be viewed by clicking on the appropriate button below.
This list is re-issued annually on 1st August, showing all memberships, new or
renewed, for the ensuing year, and is then updated at monthly intervals to include
any further renewals received or new memberships taken out.
copies of the Membership Application/Renewal form, both of which may be
printed out on a single A4 sheet, may be seen by clicking on the button
provided below. An intending new member, or a current member renewing
membership, should complete one and return it by mail, together with the
appropriate annual fee, to the address shown. We regret that the club
is unable to process credit card payments, and suggest payment by cheque,
as enclosure of banknotes is not recommended.
