Amateur Radio League, also known as "The Tin Lizzy Club", and for
considering membership in our organization.
We are a member of the Ford Employee Recreation Association (FERA) and
support both our amateur radio hobby as well as the Ford Motor Company through
our activities. We have regular Club
meetings and several social and field events throughout the year and publish a
Club newsletter (The Bolt).
goals are to:
promote our hobby through community and public service events
education and support for those interested in becoming amateur radio operators
(or learning more about the many aspects of amateur radio)
prepared to provide emergency communications during disasters
a venue for anyone interested in amateur radio to meet and discuss issues of
interest and importance
are 3 types of membership recognized by the FERA and our Club bylaws:
(Employee or Immediate Family) - All Ford Motor Company employees and their
immediate family members qualify for Regular-Employee or Regular-Immediate
Family member status.
- Non-Ford personnel qualify for Associate memberships.
The total number of Associate members is limited to a percentage of the
Active club members who retire, and other hams chosen for special recognition,
qualify for the Honorary membership.
members are sponsored by current Club members who act as their "Elmer"
for general information or support. All
membership applications are voted upon by a quorum of the Club membership
present at a regular Club meeting once both the application and annual dues are
received. First year dues are $20
and includes a club name badge. Subsequent
year dues are currently $15 for the year and must be paid by April of each year.

membership voting, or can be mailed to: FARL, PO Box 2711, Dearborn, MI
you, once again, for your interest in our Club and we hope you will submit the
application form on the back of this information sheet for membership with us.
You are welcome to come as a guest to any Club meetings and to join us in
presentations and discussions we have. We
meet every 2nd Thursday of the month (except July and August) at 6:30
PM, and are currently meeting at the Engine Manufacturing Development Operations
(EMDO) building located at 17000 Southfield in Allen Park (next to the Allen
Park Police Station). Ford employees
will let everyone into the building, since it is a secure building.
