Welcome to the printable and down-loadable archives of the CCA Signal Magazine. This magazine is printed and sent to our membership once a quarter. We honor the Collins Radio Company and Rockwell Collins by carrying on the tradition of printing a quality information and technical magazine called the Signal Magazine. Over the past 8 years it has evolved from a black and white newsletter format to its current form of a full color and full sized (typically 24 page) stitch bound magazine. It contains a wealth of information about the history of the Collins Radio Company, its equipment and its people. This includes historical perspectives as well as great technical support and restoration articles. Please see the RX for Your Collins button on the tool bar for a cross reference for these articles by equipment model.

Contributors to these articles are rewarded with subscription bonuses as well as the pride of seeing their work in a quality magazine. If you would like to write for The Signal, or even if you just have material or pictures to contribute, please contact the editor, Bill Carns, by email and we will be pleased to work with you.

Below are scanned PDF files of the previous issues of the CCA Signal Magazine.

This section of the CCA web site includes links to scanned versions of all past issues of The Signal  – the quarterly magazine of the Collins Collectors Association (CCA) – as well as new articles written specifically for this on-line resource. Online PDF files are available here for most issues up to and including 2013. On line issue availability trails the published mailings by about a year and a half.

The original Collins Radio Signal Magazine can be viewed by clicking here (Collins Radio Company “Collins Signals from the 1930s“)

Viewing and printing of CCA Portable Document Format (.pdf) files requires that you obtain and install Acrobat Reader from Adobe, Inc. Acrobat Reader can be downloaded for FREE via Adobe’s web site or from the button below.

Note: If you’re having problems printing any of these documents, please print them one page at a time. Some pirnters don’t have enough internal memory to print all pages at the same time.
