NEW MEMBERS APPLICATION FORM

MEMBERS RENEWAL FORM

YLISSB Dues can be paid via PayPal

We can pay Annual Membership Dues via PayPal” through our YLISSB website, www.ylsystem.org.

Membership Applications, Membership Renewals and payment of annual dues (yearly in January) can be made using the PayPal PAY NOW”  button on the web site. The Webmaster and the Treasurer monitor each payment.

Using PayPal,  approved at the South Padre Island Annual Convention, is set at $21 per year, covering our $0.91 cost to use the service. With increases in US and International Postage, this provides a savings to those outside the US and is near actual cost to others when you consider use of checks and stamps. The move was expedited when local banks assessed $15.00 per check to process non-US checks and money orders.

You may continue to mail your U.S. bank-issued Checks and U.S. issued Money Orders for dues of $20.00 to the Treasurer. Include your Renewal form.

HERE IS HOW MEMBERS CAN SEND FUNDS via PayPal :

- On our web site, at the bottom of the Renewal page, list your FCC Call and your Sideband number.

- By clicking the PayPal “PAY NOW” button on the YLISSB web site, it takes you to the PayPal page.

- On the left side of their page is the invoice that goes to the Treasurer. By placing your “mouse pointer” over the blue “Options: CALLSIGN / ISSB # ” you will be certain that it is telling the treasurer your Call sign and your ISSB number for proper crediting.

- If you have a PayPal Account, you will enter your e-mail and address and your PayPal password. The rest should be automatic.

- If you do NOT have a PayPal account, you can set one up at that point OR (at the bottom) you can pay by credit card without becoming a PayPal member.

- The Treasurer will respond with a personal e-mail to let you know the payment has been received and credited to your membership.

Questions can be addressed to Treasurer@ylsystem.org.
