Our Annual dues are incredibly low for the value the club can provide.  We welcome any ham as a guest to the clubhouse any time our members are present.  Why don’t you come visit us and see for yourself why W3KWH is the next club you want to join!

BECOMING A FULL MEMBER:

In order to Join W3KWH,  we ask that you attend a minimum of three business meetings in a six month period.  This is to protect the club, and make sure you are a good match for our group.  Until you are a full member, we welcome you to visit the clubhouse for our social meetings on Wednesday nights, as well as take part in any other club activities as a guest.  As long as there is a member present, you will be our welcome guest.

If you are a regular at the club, but due to personal scheduling conflicts cannot attend the business meetings, speak with the president or the Membership committee and explain the situation.  We have made exceptions to our policy for members who are regular visitors on social night, but can’t make it to the clubhouse on Tuesday nights.

FAMILY MEMBERSHIP:

A family member of an active full member can also join the club at a reduce rate and enjoy full key card access to the club house and can have the same voting rights as a full member.

DX MEMBERSHIP: 

Is only open to former full members that have unfortunately had to move away from the Pittsburgh region.  So former members wishing to become an member again can become an DX member by contacting the leadership and submitting a application to join which still requires a single vote by the full membership at our monthly business meeting. DX members get full access to the two W3KWH remote stations and a big welcome at our weekly two meter nets {Via remote or Echolink}, and added to the clubs email reflector. DX members do not get key card access to the club house.
