Sample SARA Journal
SARA dues are payable on an annual basis, with the SARA membership year ending on 15 June. Membership dues may be paid by US dollar check (drawn on a US bank, payable to "Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers"), by postal money order, or via PayPal.
Annual SARA dues are only $20 (US funds) anywhere in the world. Membership includes a subscription to Radio Astronomy, the bimonthly Journal of The Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers, delivered electronically (via a secure web link, emailed to you as each new issue is posted). We regret that printing and postage costs prevent SARA from providing hardcopy subscriptions to our Journal.
SARA Student Memberships - Now a Reduced Price is offered to full-time students ages 22 and younger and enrolled in school. Membership dues for Student Membership are just $5.00 US per year.
SARA Life Memberships are now offered for a one-time payment of twenty times the basic annual membership fee (or, currently, $400 US). Life Memberships entitle SARA members to receive the Journal via electronic delivery.
