The Oregon Region Relay Council is a non-profit corporation formed by repeater owners in Oregon and Southwest Washington with the purpose of representing every coordinated repeater owner. Being certified with the National Frequency Coordination Council, the ORRC is governed by Bylaws made by the repeater owners and managed by a board of directors consisting of regional directors that are elected by their peers as well as five 'At Large' directors who are elected at the annual general membership meeting. The ORRC Operations Committee meets every other month to review applications and grant coordination requests. Following that meeting is the Board meeting and is open to all. The ORRC works closely with the neighboring coordination organizations (Western Washington Amateur Radio Association, Inland Area Coordination's Council, SEICC, and Northern Amateur Relay Council of California) to assist repeater owners in operating systems that will not conflict with neighboring states.


The ORRC is a member of the National Frequency Coordinators Council, Inc. (NFCC).  The ORRC has been certified by NFCC and complies with NFCC standards.
