ARCI Advertising Policy

ARCI News is read by almost 500 people six times each year, and many more at Radiofest. Between paid members, courtesy copies and handouts at our meets, ARCI News offers our membership a comprehensive source of news and information about ARCI, Radiofest, local meets and topical stories of interest to our hobby. As a new service to our members, ARCI is pleased to announce a new paid advertising policy, effective 2008, as follows:

(1.)   Advertising can be placed in ARCI News by both ARCI members and non-members. Revenues received from advertising will be used for the benefit of ARCI and its membership as a means to offset the rising costs of service delivery.

(2.)   Advertising will be accepted only for items related to radio, communication, or related hobby interests. ARCI, its officers and members are not responsible for the content of any advertising or the provision of any services or products offered. ARCI reserves the right to approve any advertising submitted for publication. ARCI is granted publication and reprint rights to any materials received. Advertisers agree to respond promptly to inquiries and orders originating from any ARCI advertising, and to resolve any disputes or other issues originating from any ARCI advertising, on a timely basis.

(3.)   All advertising must be prepaid. Artwork must be sent by email in jpeg, gif or PowerPoint format. Advertising will be displayed in ARCI News based on the numbered page sizes printed in ARCI News, i.e. a full page ad will be approximately 5 x 8 covering one printed page of ARCI News. Pre-paid advertising received by ARCI will be placed in the next available issue of ARCI News depending on the production schedule for its layout and printing.

(4.)   All advertising should be emailed to Bill Smith, ARCI Editor at with copies emailed to Art Bilski, ARCI Public Relations at, and David Bart, ARCI President at Payments by check can be mailed to Antique Radio Club of Illinois, P.O. Box 1139, LaGrange Park, IL 60526. ARCI's pre-paid advertising pricing structure is as follows:
