DIAL Radio Club is affiliated with the American Radio Relay League and has a membership of over 80, with most being from the southwest Ohio area. We are a general interest club with a focus on instruction. Dial initially formed during the 1930's and has been an ARRL Affiliated Club since 1941. We have offered classes to prepare students for their amateur exams for more than 30 years. We have been giving FCC exams since the Volunteer Examiner process began. Currently we are offering zero cost exams under the auspices of the Laurel VEC. We are proud of our role in helping to increase the number licensed amateurs.
Dues for a Dial membership are family based. The family includes all who live under one roof plus full time students that reside on campus for part of the year. The dues are $26 per year for a full membership (a portion of the dues goes to support Dial's repeater system) or $12 per year for a Basic membership. The year begins on January 1 and ends on December 31 of a year. New members joining after July 1 pay a fee of $13 for the remainder of the year (note this does not apply to former members that have not renewed). Students in Dial courses that earn their first amateur license after completing the course are given a 1-year membership for free. Sorry, but it does not apply to upgrades.
