Sponsorship Scheme

an old morse key Due to the increase in the number of YLs and the formation of many Women’s Amateur Radio Organisations, a sponsorship scheme is in place. This enables ALARA members to sponsor overseas friends into ALARA and become a member of a DX association in return.

A sponsor pays annual fees including postage for the club’s newsletter, thus eliminating foreign currency transactions.

The decision to sponsor is usually made with a YL of similar interests beside radio. Many Australian members now sponsor overseas YLs into ALARA on this reciprocal basis and have made long standing friendships often resulting in travel and actual meetings.

If you are interested in sponsoring a DX YL or being sponsored into an overseas club, contact the Sponsorship Secretary for more information.
