New Colorado Hams

ARRL Membership in Colorado

As of January 2017, the ARRL Colorado Section has shown a -1.1% total net loss in our overall ARRL Membership over the preceding year ending December 2016. This represents a net total of 3,625 ARRL members out of the 7,342 current members in the entire Rocky Mountain Division (CO, UT, WY, and NM). Last year at this same time there were 3,665 ARRL members in Colorado. Colorado ARRL affiliated hams make up about 49% of the Rocky Mountain Division’s total ARRL membership.

I believe that the overall decline in nationwide ARRL members is due to a couple of problems. First of all, we are seeing some attrition due to some of our more senior members going SK and the bulk of our ARRL members are hams that were licensed as far back as the mid 1950’s. Secondly, I believe that the increase in ARRL membership dues may have caused some members to not renew or join. That is always the chance when you increase dues of any sort even though your ARRL membership is still a bargain considering the representation and the benefits offered overall. 

To this extent, we desperately need to offer an entry level amateur radio license exam more suited to attract people under the age of 30 to the hobby. the ARRL is considering changing the entry level exam to reflect more of what might be more attractive to potential hams by modernizing the question pool and making more in line to today’s technologies. Your input is requested and welcomed at http://www.arrl.org/news/arrl-seeks-opinions-concerning-possible-new-entry-level-license 

The ARRL Colorado Section reflects the losses in the Rocky Mountain Division this year with the total number of hams and net gains/losses in ARRL membership/month and yet, is showing less losses than most ARRL Sections in the USA. For reference, the overall losses of the ARRL in the USA and its entities has declined at a -3.8% rate over the same time period. The Rocky Mountain Division ARRL membership has also declined at a -2.4% rate during the same time period. There are approximately 163,312 ARRL members in the USA as of January 2017. Colorado’s total ARRL membership makes up approximately 2.2% of the ARRL’s entire membership. 

According to the FCC’s database, as of February 2017, there is a total of 16,849 ACTIVE ham licensees in Colorado. Of which, 3,244 are Extra Class; 936 are Advanced Class; 3802 are General Class; 8714 are Technician Class and there are still 153 classed as Novices (??). So, doing the math once again, 21.5% of all the hams in Colorado are currently ARRL members. C’mon guys and gals, I’m sure we can do better than that! You Club Presidents need to recruit more of your members to join the ARRL. You new hams need to join one of the many great ARRL affiliated Ham Radio Clubs in Colorado, join the ARRL as a member and reap the many benefits ARRL membership has to offer. As a note of interest… there were about 15,131 hams in February 2016. We have had an 10.2% gain in ham radio licenses here in Colorado over the past 12 months!  WOW!!
