The primary objectives and purposes of SCRA is to promote interest in and the competency of amateur radio electronics technology and communication practice; to provide service, equipment, support, cooperation and assistance to public communications and emergency services, agencies and organizations in times of disaster or emergencies or when otherwise requested; to assist fellow amateurs in development of the radio art and to provide educational opportunities to persons interested in radio communications; to bring before its members such topics and equipment as would improve their knowledge of the radio arts; to offer training in emergency preparedness skills; to provide better communication through all phases of amateur operation, including but not limited to radio repeaters; to support and promote lawful radio operation in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission and the Amateur Radio Relay League Code of Ethics.

Your donation helps support our efforts in amateur radio education, community outreach, public service, emergency preparedness, experimentation, and operational activities. Our repeater systems provide free-to-use two-way radio coverage of much of Sonoma County and parts of Marin and Lake Counties and remained operational during the wildfire and PSPS events. In September 2020, one of our repeater stations (Castle Rock, valued at $14,000) was destroyed in the Glass Fire. Generous donations of time, materials and money enabled the station to return to the air in October 2021. We thank you for your support as it is truly beneficial.
