Northern Illinois Radio Club Membership

We are a somewhat exclusive club, meaning that we aren't for everyone. Our club loves working with technology facets that enhance the ham radio hobby. That means experimenting with digital modes, interfacing radios with VoIP software / hardware (AllStar, DMR, Echolink, IRLP, etc...), tinkering with electronics and embedded computing devices (Arduino, BeagleBone Black, Raspberry Pi, etc...), and more. We are not specifically a DX club, repeater club, or crybaby club. Neither do we cater to easily offended / close minded individuals.

So... You want to become a NIRC member? Great! We're always looking to bring on new members with similar interests. To get started you'll need to fill out the membership inquiry form below. Be sure to send us a detailed message as to why you'd like to join the club. Once submitted, the form will be reviewed by our members. Someone will contact you just as soon as we've had a chance to look things over. You should expect to hear from someone within 48 hours or so, but typically sooner.
