The Contra Costa Repeater Association was established in 1977 by four teenagers 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.  The CCRA’s mission is to maintain and support several linked repeaters and support equipment needed to provide amateur radio communications.  Not only do we serve the amateur community but we also provide secondary communications to public service agencies and organizations supporting emergency communications.  For information on how you can support the CCRA please click on our Membership link.

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.

The CCRA during normal times would have its next breakfast at Legends & Heroes Sports Bar at 9 AM on August 22, 2020.   But things not being normal due to Covid-19, we will just have to continue monitoring the health advisories on the Corona Virus and will update the site as we get more information.  Legends is located at at the Diablo Creek Golf Course at 4050 Port Chicago Highway in North Concord.
