Membership

Monthly meeting attendance is currently free, and we do not require that you have a current amateur radio license to participate.

We do require that you are a member of the club to join our Groups.io group. This group is moderated so there may be a delay between the time that you make the request to join and the request completing. If you have made the request to join the group and you do not get a response within a day or so, contact Brian, KB2S (k7lwh@kb2s.net).

Membership Dues

Lake Washington Ham Club is entirely supported by its members and generous donors. Many hams have pitched in over the years to help support the club through their memberships and donations. These make our club the special place that it is for our members to share their experiences and encourage each other in our ham radio activities.

Use of the repeaters and joining monthly meetings are free, however the actual operation of physical and digital club infrastructure are not. We ask our members for a membership fee of $10/yr to support the infrastructure and mission of the club. A lifetime membership option is available to current club members in good standing.

Applying for lifetime membership

Life Memberships are now being offered to current club members in good standing. A member in good standing is one that pays their dues and participates in club activities.

Details of the Life Membership program are:

  • The fee is $75 as a one-time fee. Life Membership is subject to the approval of the club’s Board of Directors. In the event your request is denied, your one-time fee will be refunded. While the standard way to become a life member is through this one-time fee, the Board may also consider large donations of funds or equipment as a valid criterion for Life Membership.
  • Each call sign requires the one-time payment of life membership fee. No family plan will be considered.
  • The club waives the annual membership dues for Life Members for their lifetime. Non-transferable.
  • If a life member moves away and if the member requests it, the account would be placed on inactive status and could be reactivated by a simple request later on.
  • We request that the Life members verify and/or update their contact information for the roster at least once a year.

IMPORTANT: To continually improve the program, the Life Membership program is subject to change at the discretion of the club’s Board of Directors. If changes are implemented, details of the changes will be published 90 days prior to the changes becoming effective. In an extraordinary event, the club’s Board of Directors reserves the right to revoke a Life Membership. If this happens the member’s one-time fee will be refunded minus the annual renewal rate for each year as a Life Member.
