The CCRA was established in 1977 and operates the WA6HAM repeater system.   The CCRA is dedicated to providing the amateur radio community in Contra Costa County and surrounding areas, repeaters that can be used for public service activities.

If you are outside the San Francisco Bay Area / Sacramento – San Joaquin Valley areas you are welcome to to connect to the repeater via EchoLink.   You will find it listed in Area 6 as WA6HAM-R with Node number 501653.

Please check into the Contra Costa Repeater Association Weekly Net – Mondays at 7:35 PM using one of 3 linked repeaters on 147.735 MHz, 145.49 MHz, 145.41 MHz while using a -600 KHz frequency split with a PL of 107.2 Hz.

2020 has been a bizzaro year with Covid-19, isolation from socializing and the Kregor Peak repeater failing and needing to be replaced.  Somehow we will survive the elections this year and can only look forward to 2021 being a better year.  Our hope is the CCRA can resume our monthly breakfasts in early 2021.  To keep the repeaters running we still need something called dues.  We hope you will continue to support the mission of the Contra Costa Repeater Association this coming year.

The CCRA is now collecting dues for 2021.

The CCRA dues structure for 2021 is $30.00 per year with an additional $5.00 for family members.

Please submit your dues to the CCRA Treasurer via USPS mail. 

Please make you check out to “CCRA” and send it to:
