WSSM Home     What is Ham Radio?     Contact Us


Whether you’re licensed or not, anyone with an interest in radio communications is welcome to join!

WSSM Membership Certificate
Dues for WSSM memberships are $12.00 per year, beginning in September.

Besides sharing in the fun of amateur radio with fellow radio enthusiasts, all members receive a certificate, suitable for framing, and are kept up to date on club events and activities. Members are also welcome to join our Yahoo Discussion Group, and are encouraged to participate in the online conversation as well. Another benefit of joining is the linking of your personal webpage off our site. If you're a member, and you'd like your website added, please send an email to KB1HNZ.

Certificates are available to new members automatically, and renewing members upon request.

New Benefit!
Now that WSSM is an affiliated ARRL club, we can offer club members a discounted membership in the ARRL. Contact Tim Watson, KB1HNZ for details.


There are three types of WSSM memberships available (explained in detail in the By-Laws):

Full membership  is open to licensed hams who are residents of Southern Maine and can commit to attending meetings and events, since it also comes with the right to vote, hold a club office, and nominate others for office.

If you live outside of the area and are still interested in joining, you can become an Associate Member, which includes all the benefits of Full Membership, except the right to vote, hold office, or nominate others.

As of March 2016, a new membership category is available for those with a desire to support Emergency Communications. WSSM Emergency Communications Team (WSSM-ECT) membership is available by application to any licensed amateur radio operator. There is no charge for a standalone WSSM-ECT membership.

For your convenience, WSSM Now Accepts PayPal for membership purchases. All you have to do is click the button below to submit payment, and send a completed Membership Application via email or mail.

A family discount is available at 50% off the total combined regular price, for households with two or more family members. For example, if three members of a family wish to join, the regular rate would be $36. If you apply the family discount, the total cost of membership becomes $18.
