I’m sure you’re all familiar with the American Express Company’s saying “Membership has its privileges”, and while this is true, its chiasmus “Privileges has its membership” is equally true.
As a new Technician Class license holder, you’ve worked hard earning your Amateur Radio Operating privileges to work these bands: 33 Centimeters, 70 Centimeters, 1.25 Meters, 2 Meters, 6 Meters, 10 Meters, 15 Meters, 40 Meters, and 80 Meters. You’ve made it, you’re in the club…or are you? You keep hearing Hams talking about how they’re looking forward to getting together and having a face-to-face over coffee at next month’s meeting. Well, now’s your chance to really join the club; an opportunity to put a face on, and get a hand shake from the people whose voices come out of your radio.
If you’re a newly licensed Ham, the Hampden County Radio Association would like to extend to you, a hearty welcome to the hobby and a year’s free membership in the HCRA. It’s easy to take advantage of this offer and there are two simple ways to do it.
- Attend the next HCRA meeting and bring your CSCE, or a copy of your Amateur Radio license.
- Download a membership application from the website, fill it out and send it in along with a copy of your CSCE, or Amateur Radio license to the club’s mailing address.
That’s it, simple, quick and easy. So if you, or someone you know just got their ticket, we’d love to have you join our club, because after all Privileges Has Its Membership!
