Collins Radio Association
Welcome to our new web site


The Collins Radio Association was established to encourage hams, especially the newcomer, to share the enjoyment that comes from owning and operating Collins equipment, the best amateur radio gear in the world!

What is the Collins Radio Association and what does it offer? It’s simply a group of Collins enthusiasts who enjoy operating and discussing what’s possibly the best amateur radio ever built!

Please note that the CRA website is now under construction on a timely basis – slowly but surely we are making updates as needed.  We had hoped to open the “members only section”  by now.  Initially, we plan is to include scanned pictures and articles from the later colored back issues of the Collins Journal.  We apologize for the delay in sending out information on accessing for nmembers only on the upper corner of the homepage.  Stay tuned.  Thank you for your patience and support.
