Membership Class Choices
Join in the fun! Meet, connect, collect, buy, sell, swap and learn. Nearly 2,000 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 Member of AWA, Friend of the AWA Museum, Corporate Friend of the AWA Museum and AWA Museum Technology Explorer. The classes have been created to appeal to members seeking different levels of participation in AWA activities from technical/collector/historian participation (AWA Members) to interest in supporting and participating in the educational activities of the AWA Museum (Friends of the Museum) to opportunities for kids and teens to be exposed to and participate in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) classes and programs at the Museum (Technology Explorer).
For two membership classes, a regular and an Affinity Level choice is available. Affinity levels are provided for those members that are already a member of associated organizations that provide this option. These organizations are the Radio Club of America (RCA) and the Collins Collectors Association (CCA), each at a five percent discounted cost.
The AWA 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, click on the button provided beside each classes basic description.
