    • ARPOC Awards Scheme

      The ARPOC awards scheme aims to encourage operators to get out in the fresh air with their radio equipment and enjoy portable operating.


      ARPOC has plenty of award certificates that can be applied for and are delivered as a downloadable certificate for members to print at home. Take a look here to see them all.



      Downloadable award certificates are free for all members of ARPOC but it is appreciated if you consider becoming a full member. Full membership costs only 5 per year and helps to ensure that the awards scheme continues for future generations.

    • How to join ARPOC

      The Amateur Radio Portable Operators Club provides an on-line platform for licensed amateurs to discuss all aspects of portable operating. The club also runs a comprehensive award scheme that issues downloadable certificates for various aspects of portable operating.

      There are 2 types of club membership:

      Free Member

      Full Member
      Once you have registered as a free member, you can upgrade your account to become a full member. Full members can access all of the on-line forums, use the spots system with no restrictions including being able to "self spot" and post proposed activations plus access other full members only tools as we create them. All full members also receive a personalised digital ARPOC "badge" featuring their call sign and membership number via email that they can use to show their support for portable operators worldwide. Full membership costs just ?5 GBP per year and helps to keep the ARPOC awards scheme running. Click here to upgrade your account (you need to be a free member and be logged in to upgrade).

      As ARPOC continues to grow, we will introduce new additional benefits for full members including (hopefully) discounts at various suppliers, a quarterly members magazine and special award certificates.
