Membership in the Cypress Chapter is easy even considering the current lack of propagation. All you need do is work 1 IQ (Instant Qualifer) or 5 members who are not IQs. All current Cypress Chapter members are IQs (their membershp number must be 2100 or below). There are enough of our members throughout the country (also several DX countries) that you should have no trouble finding someone to work. Once you work the qualifier you only need to go to our web site http://www.cypresschapter.org/ and then click on the Application Form link.
Our full-color membership certificate will be issued to you as a PDF file downloadable from our web site. For those of you that would like the certificate printed, please request a JPG file along with the PDF file when you sign up. A file will be made available that you can send or take to a photo print shop such as Wal-Mart where you can get a great print job for 2 bucks (maybe a little more depending upon your area). You can't print our certificate on your printer cheaper than that.
As a side note: if you held a membership number with the now QRT Central Florida Cypress Chapter (we are not the same group) then you can become a member of our chapter automatically. Please use the Contact Us link on our web site to let us know and we will get you set up.
