Thank you  for your interest in the Ford 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).


Our goals are to:


1.    Actively promote our hobby through community and public service events

2.    Provide education and support for those interested in becoming amateur radio operators (or learning more about the many aspects of amateur radio)

3.    Be prepared to provide emergency communications during disasters

4.    Provide a venue for anyone interested in amateur radio to meet and discuss issues of interest and importance


There are 3 types of membership recognized by the FERA and our Club bylaws:


1.    Regular (Employee or Immediate Family) - All Ford Motor Company employees and their immediate family members qualify for Regular-Employee or Regular-Immediate Family member status.

2.    Associate - Non-Ford personnel qualify for Associate memberships.  The total number of Associate members is limited to a percentage of the entire membership.

3.    Honorary- Active club members who retire, and other hams chosen for special recognition, qualify for the Honorary membership.

New 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.  Applications and dues can be presented to any FARL member for review and membership voting, or can be mailed to: FARL, PO Box 2711, Dearborn, MI  48123.

Thank 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.  Please try to be on time!
