Membership of VMARS is open to anyone interested in any of the aims of the Society and whose application is approved by the existing membership.

There are three classes of membership:-

  • Full members, being over the age of 18 or holding an amateur radio transmitting licence granted by any competent authority.
  • Student members who must be under the age of 25 and in full time formal education. The annual subscription for student members is one half of the normal subscription.
  • Family membership is offered where a full member wishes to extend Society
    membership to other members of their household. These additional family members have all the rights of a full member, but do not receive further copies of Society publications in their own name. Family membership costs 25% of the full UK rate for each additional person.
If you wish to join the society, please download the membership application form (in Adobe Acrobat format), then post it when completed to the address on the form.
