Membership Application Form and Member Dues Information:


Club Member Dues Information: We have changed the way we collect dues. Starting July 1, 2019 ALL members dues are to be paid for the 2019 calendar year. Each July 1, members’ dues will be requested for that year. In the past the dues collected from each member was collected based on their date they joined the club. To simplify this process, we are going to collect the dues in the month of July from all members. They are due, July 1 and late after July 31 of each year. New members will have their dues pro-rated by the yearly quarter they join. Dues notices will NOT be mailed or sent out. This serves as your notice of dues to be collected. 

When renewing your dues, please fill out a new application form and include it with your payment, as we want to make sure we have the current information of the membership. Stop by the club to pick up an application or you can use the link below. The link will allow you to fill out the form, then you can print prior to dropping it off at the club or mailing it.

Persons with Disabilities

The Citrus Belt Amateur Radio Club is now offering free membership to people who have disabilities which effectively prevent them from participating in amateur radio activities. Such disabilities include blindness, deafness, and limited mobility. The purpose is to allow folks with disabilities to access the resources offered by a service club such as CBARC, whether it be help studying for taking an exam for a license, help obtaining appropriate radio equipment, help installing a station, antenna, or some device or program someone might need in order to operate.

The Citrus Belt Amateur Radio Club Board of Directors will evaluate each request for membership and assistance as requested in order to provide such assistance in an appropriate and timely manner. All people interested in amateur radio are welcome at all club activities regardless of age, race, gender, ability, or any other factor.

A written letter must be submitted to the Board with the explanation of the persons disability, needs etc. Once the Board reviews the letter, they will contact the applicant for either more information or approval/disapproval of membership.
