Membership Home

We encourage you to support and join the Collins Collectors Association (CCA)…. While many of our benefits are free to members and non-members alike, The CCA provides these “public” benefits in the interest of preserving the equipment, history and folklore of Collins Radio. Please understand that these “free services” are not free for us and we depend on membership support to fund these preservation services like the reflector and the archiving work done on this site. Please read the “ABOUT” section of the site for more information on our organization.


Membership Facts: To provide broader support to the general Collins collecting community, there are now two levels of CCA Membership available. Note also that there is no relationship between “Joining” or Subscribing to the CCA Reflector and becoming either a full member or an associate member of the CCA.

– You can join as a full member and receive all of the privileges listed below including our beautiful full sized & full color Signal Magazine.
– You can join free as an associate and receive the quarterly email CCA Columns Newsletter. You also get log-on privileges for our website and print and frame your Associate Membership Certificate. You do not receive member discounts or the Signal Magazine.


Annual New “Full Membership” Dues:

• USA and Canadian membership – $32.00 (There is a $3.00 processing fee for mail payment so mail-in)
Full Membership is $35.00 check or MO – use the printable form on the right).
• Foreign (non-US/Canada) Membership – $45.00 in US funds (Mail or Online Payment)

• Bonus: We will continue to have the Q4 Annual “Join US” Bonus. New applicants joining after   September 31 will receive the Q4 issue of The Signal for that year plus membership for the complete following year. For your convenience, your date of membership expiration is printed on every mailing label for the magazine. You can look there to find your status or log into your account once you have set up a password.
