Classes of Membership

Already an AWA member and you want to renew on-line? On-line renewal can be done by going to the Store/Membership On-Line page.

Join in the fun! Meet, connect, collect, buy, sell, swap and learn.  Nearly 1,200 radio hobbyists, ham operators, students, scouts, and researchers — all kinds and of all ages — are Antique Wireless Association members. Membership in AWA is available in four classes and at multiple levels of commitment.

The four available membership classes are Antique Wireless Association Member, Friend of the Antique Wireless Museum, Corporate Friend of the Antique Wireless Museum and Antique Wireless Museum Technology Explorer. The classes have been created to appeal to those seeking different levels of participation in AWA activities from technical/collector/historian participation (Antique Wireless Association Member) to interest in supporting and participating in the educational activities of the AWA Museum (Friends of the Antique Wireless Association Museum), corporate sponsors (Corporate Friend of the Antique Wireless Museum) and to opportunities for kids and teens to be exposed to and participate in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational classes and programs at the Museum (Antique Wireless Museum Technology Explorer).

If you are a member of Radio Club of America or the Collins Collectors Association, you may join or renew your AWA membership at a discount by choosing the Affinity (associated clubs) membership option.

The membership classes are listed below, with the specific benefits available with each on separate pages dedicated to detail each.  To see the specifics for the classes and purchase any of the available levels in a class, click on the button provided beside each classes’ basic description.

To make your decision as to which class is best for your needs, the summary tables below will allow you to make your selection.  All classes of membership are voting members of AWA, except for Technology Explorers.

If you wish to join AWA by US mail, application forms are available on the Application Memberships page. Just print the form and mail it with a check.

To join or renew on-line, at the bottom of each class set are buttons to take you to that specific membership to join or review option page of the on-line store.
