By Online Submission: Complete the form below and then click on the “Apply for Membership” at the bottom of the page. Your call sign, name and address information will be verified with the FCC license registry. Your membership application will then be placed in a “pending” status until we have received your annual dues payment.
You can use the private access link that will be sent to the secure email address you list below in your online membership application to make an online credit card dues payment via PayPal. Or, attend the next meeting to pay your dues to the club treasurer.
By Mail or at a Club Meeting: Fill out the information requested in the form below and, instead of clicking on the “Apply for Membership” button at the bottom of this page, use your browser’s print function to print a copy of your completed form. Either mail the application form & payment to “Orange County Radio Amateurs, P.O. Box 294, Carrboro, NC 27510, or give the completed application, payment and show your FCC License to the club treasurer at the next monthly membership meeting.
New member application forms received by online submission, by mail or at a club meeting, but whose 1st year’s dues have not yet been received will show on the membership listing with a “Pending” status.
|Newly Licensed Hams: If you’re a newly licensed ham, you can claim a free year’s OCRA membership. Use the same procedure above to create and print a completed membership application page and show your FCC license to the club treasurer at the next club meeting. Be sure to identify yourself as a new licensee during the member introductions at the beginning of the meeting..|
