The ARLHS “Basic Membership” requires a small, one-time registration fee of only $5.00 US dllrs ($8.00 for DX applicants outside USA and Canada). This fee is to cover the cost of processing the application, and is paid only once for the life of the Basic Membership.  After that there are NO annual dues or additional fees of any kind.
          To apply via PayPal, go to page and click on the large red box in lower left corner OR apply via postal mail and fill out the
application form and send it as postal mail with payment to ARLHS Hdq, 114 Woodbine Ave, Merchantville, NJ 08109 USA. Be sure to include your E-Mail address.
          Basic Memberships are available via
PayPal or Postal Mail , with payment by cash or check drawn on a USA bank. After we receive your application, we'll send you an e-mail with your ARLHS member number and other information. The Basic Membership allows you to use the ARLHS member number, participate in ARLHS events, and use the ARLHS logo on QSL cards, etc. For additional privileges, upgrade to the “Inactive” or “Full” Membership levels, described below.







The “Inactive Membership” level is for those who want some ARLHS benefits and privileges but want only the minimum dues of $10.00 US dllrs yearly. There is an initial one-time registration fee of $5.00, plus the first-year's dues of $10 (the registration fee is for the first year only — after that you pay only $10 yearly). 

          The Inactive Member level allows use of the ARLHS logo as well as access to most ARLHS web site features.
This level is also applicable to those former Active Members who have let their memberships lapse and have not paid the yearly dues.

The Inactive Membership level reactivates your membership but does not grant full Active Membership nor any additional privileges.
          You may apply for “Inactive” status by
Clicking Here. This will take you to the “Inactive Membersip Application” site.


This is the full-member “Active” level with the most benefits.  It requires a one-time US $5.00 registration fee (both DX and USA) for the member packet and thereafter an annual dues payment of $20.00 US dllrs.  It includes full member privileges; reduced costs on awards, certificates, and member supplies; full-color embroidered logo shoulder patch; use of exclusive ARLHS logo on QSLs and stationery; full web site privileges; and many other benefits.  In some instances it also provides a discount on the annual ARLHS convention.  “Active Memberships” can be applied for by either of the two methods, as described on the “Active Member Application”  page.



Lifetime Memberships are available to active members, with reduced rates for Senior citizens over age 65. For details and a mail-in application form, Go Here.
