Welcome to the Marple Newtown Amateur Radio Club

The Marple Newtown Amateur Radio Club thanks its members for their continued loyalty and contributions and always welcomes new members.

Joining the club is easy and inexpensive.  Annual dues are $20.00 for existing and new members and $6.00 for each additional member residing at the same address. Dues cover the period from January 1 through December 31 and are not prorated. New members joining on and after October 1 are given full credit toward the following year. Renewals prior to the end of February would be much appreciated.

The club strives to keep pertinent information about its members up-to-date and purges its list of expired memberships after March 15. To help us keep current and to make sure you keep receiving club information, kindly follow the instructions below.

It is now easier than ever to join the Marple Newtown Amateur Radio Club or to renew your membership. The club’s preferred method of payment is by credit card. Cheddar Up provides an easy way to do this for a small fee of less than $1.60. Recognizing that a few individuals prefer not to use credit cards, Cheddar Up also allows for payment with personal checks or cash. Whether sending a check or paying at a meeting with cash, please use Cheddar Up for ALL forms of payment.

Please note: an application form is required for all renewals and new memberships and is included as part of the Cheddar Up process.
