Club Meetings: This month, our club meeting will be on the air. The meeting / net will start at 6pm on the K7RPT Mt. Fanny repeater

If you are not feeling well, please stay home! Also we will still need to conduct ourselves per state guidelines for Covid-19.

Field Day 2020: As of right now, we are still on for having FD at Bird Track Springs Campground.


The Grande Ronde Radio Amateur Association (GRRAA) is an organization for those interested in amateur radio. Amateur Radio Operators (also known as “hams”), are licensed by the FCC to operate amateur radio communications for personal enjoyment and for emergency communications. The GRRAA has been granted a call sign by the FCC of W7GRA. We use this call sign for official club functions like Field day or other amateur radio events.

The purposes of GRRAA:

  1. Prepare for emergency communications needs of our community.
  2. Provide interesting and meaningful programs and education to the organization members
  3. Promote the hobby and service that is amateur radio to our community

Where we live:

Most members of GRRAA reside in Oregon, specifically Union, Baker, and Wallowa County. However, we welcome all that have an interest in all aspects of amateur radio. So, if you are passing through on your way to another town, vacationing at one of our many destinations in Eastern Oregon, or just a neighbor, you are welcome.

Interested in learning more about the club or Amateur Radio?

Attend one of our monthly meetings, breakfast gatherings, contact us electronically or preferably OVER THE AIR! Please explore our website or visit us on Facebook, search for W7GRA. On this website, you will find our membership application, our club’s constitution, and other information that you may find interesting.  If you don’t have a FCC license yet, we can point you in the right direction for study materials and can also proctor the FCC Amateur Radio tests.

2nd Saturday Breakfast: New Location!!

We meet every 2nd Saturday of the month (excluding major holidays) for a no host gathering at the Denny’s in La Grande. This informal gathering starts at 9am and usually lasts just over an hour.

Monthly Business Meeting:

We conduct our monthly business meeting the 4th Tuesday of the month. This is open to the public and all are welcome. We hold our meetings at the La Grande Fire Station’s classroom, starting at 6pm.
