Club welcomes membership applications from telegraphy lovers from all parts of the world.
The only requirement for prospective members of CTC is that CW should be their main or only mode of operation on the amateur bands.

In case application is by post please include 15 USD or 10 euro cash in envelope by airmail, which is a contribution towards postage including the package of Club’s Certificate of membership .
It is the Club's principle of supporting CW and that is far more important than any financial consideration.
