Membership is Free, but...
Membership is free, but an annual donation of $25 is suggested. PARA operates three voice repeaters (two VHF and one UHF repeater), an EchoLink connection for "The Big .43 Repeater", and
sponsors the W3PHB-1 APRS digi-peater in Philipsburg. PARA also conducts various events during the year and participates on the Philipsburg Heritage Days festival with our special event
station W3P. Oh, and all PARA members receive via snail-mail the magazine-style "PARA Connections" newsletter each quarter. As you might imagine, this takes more than a few dollars to
keep the ball rolling. Donations for these projects, or general operating expenses, are appreciated but not required.
Term of Membership
Membership is for the current calendar year. All memberships expire on December 31st. Memberships must be renewed every calendar year by completing a membership application for the
PARA Name Tags
Optional PARA name tags are available to members from the PARA offical name tag vendor. You must be a current PARA member to order a name tag. Before producing any name tags, our
vendor will compare the order against the published membership list on the PARA web site. If your name is not on the list, the order will be delayed while membership is confirmed.
