QST now offers a column for radio clubs


The ARRL invites you to be part of “Club Station”, the new section of QST. This column is a space where radio clubs can share the different ways they are successful in helping other clubs grow. They do this by offering advice and practical solutions to common experiences and problems.

In each issue, a different club will share how they undertook a specific activity or project, how and why they were successful, and any challenges they may have faced along the way. Some examples include, but are not limited to, successful community club projects, innovative ways to attract new members, engage young people in amateur radio, and develop active radio amateurs.

“Clubs are the backbone of the amateur radio community,” said Mike Walters, ARRL Field Services Manager, W8ZY. “If your club is doing something that will inspire other clubs, we want to hear from you!”

“In order to help you tell your story, the ARRL has released author guidelines that are geared towards ‘Club Station,’ and they include a club profile form,” said QST Editor Leanna Figlewski, KC1RMP. Both of these documents are available at www.arrl.org/qst-club-station-guidelines-and-profile-form. “You don’t need to have any writing experience to get published in QST. If your submission is accepted, our editorial team will work with you to prepare your story for publication.

All clubs are invited to participate. The first iteration of “Club Station” appeared in the August 2022 issue of QST and includes more information on what members can expect to see in the column.

If you have any questions, contact us at [email protected] We look forward to hearing from you about your radio club!

QST is a benefit to ARRL members. Join the ARRL or renew your membership at www.arrl.org/join.
