GCARC is now Accepting

Club Annual Dues and

A.R.R.L memberships Online!

Members and friends,

Some of us are getting up there in years, and we can’t quite get around like we used to. Some of us may just live too far away to make it to the meetings regularly. Whatever the case, we hope to provide a huge service to those wishing to stay current, by accepting annual dues online.

I know that some of us are very leery about what we do on the internet, and rightfully so, but that is why we used PayPal. Not only is it the easiest eCommerce system to setup for our workload, but every transaction takes place on their secure website. The Gulf Coast Amateur Radio club will never see your personal information.

Also, before you guys get together and riot the clubhouse, we did NOT raise the dues at the last meeting. PayPal charges a 2.9%+$0.30 fee to every transaction for the convenience of paying from your lazy boy.  So again, please don’t pull out your picket signs from the 60’s and “come on down” like the “Price is Right”, because the price is pretty spot on compared to many of the other eCommerce platforms out there.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us using the ‘Contact us’ button at the top right of this page. This site is monitored constantly, and someone will get back to you shortly.

From the menu below you can choose to join or renew your Gulf Coast Amateur Radio Club’s membership. You can also choose to join or renew your membership to the the ARRL.  By renewing or joining ARRL on this site will help our club out. We get to retain a certain amount of the funds.

ARRL Affiliated Clubs receive a commission for every new ARRL membership and renewal they submit to ARRL Headquarters.

  • Clubs retain a portion of the dues for each regular membership submitted to ARRL Headquarters:
    • Clubs retain $15 for each new membership OR lapsed membership (of two years or more). A NEW MEMBER is defined as any individual who has never been a member of ARRL or any individual who has not retained a membership for two or more calendar years prior to the application submission.
    • Clubs retain $2 for each renewal. A RENEWING MEMBER can renew at anytime, even before their current membership term expires.
