Our doors are open to enthusiasts who have developed a love for Amateur Radio for at least 25 years. This is your pathway to becoming part of a distinguished group that celebrates the spirit of Amateur Radio across the globe.

Eligibility Requirements:

If you currently hold an Amateur Radio license and received your initial license 25 years ago or more, you qualify.

- A logbook page demonstrating your amateur radio journey.
- A QSL card that reflects your engagement in the amateur radio community.

Please send your documentation to the Office Manager at [email protected] for verification. Our comprehensive archive stretches back over 115 years, and we are adept at verifying memberships even for licenses issued at the tail end of a year. This unique capability allows us to accommodate verification with great accuracy, ensuring no one is left behind.
