Join OVARC / Renew Membership

You don't have to be a Ham to join the Oro Valley Amateur Radio Club. You only need an interest in Ham radio and a desire to be involved in a great club devoted to the hobby. If you would like to become a Licensed Amateur Radio Operator, OVARC regularly conducts classes to help interested individuals earn their Technician and General licenses. OVARC also conducts license testing monthly on the first Saturday of each month. Newly licensed Hams can also take advantage of our Elmer program. Contact one of our board members to get more information. 


Membership is $25 per calendar year. Additional household members can join for $15 each.
To become a member of OVARC, click HERE to download an OVARC Membership Application, then fill it out and bring it with $25 to one of our membership meetings. If including other household members, please add the appropriate amount (an additional $15 per household member wishing to join/renew must be included).
