Welcome to the website of the Leicester Radio Society
We are an amateur radio club based in Leicester with over 100 years of history, please take a look around. Current and previous members are encouraged to create an account by clicking on the "Sign up" link on the right hand side of the page. If you are considering joining us (or are just interested in amateur radio), you are welcome to sign up and use the shoutbox where many club members are active.
We are also trying to build a comprehensive gallery of LRS contests and special event stations over the years so if you have any pictures, please contact our webmaster who will be pleased to receive them.
Below you will find upcoming events and announcements from the committee.
Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and not being able to meet at the club, it is proposed to Delay the 2022 AGM until later in the year, possibly sometime in March.
We will be holding a Zoom based EGM on the 31st January 2022 with the following two items on the Agenda:
- Change to the constitution for club subscriptions
- Temporary move of the AGM to possibly March when hopefully things may have improved.
A proposed revised constitution will be sent out to members by email next week.
Please either attend the Zoom EGM or send your vote to Sandra before the 31st January.
Please visit the LRS Youtube channel to view a selection of videos that we have made available:

TX Factor is a series of high definition TV shows covering all aspects of the hobby of amateur radio, the latest episode is below.
TX Factor episode 27 is now live.
Another post-lockdown special? - Indeed! And we hope you are safe and well and looking forward to some TX Factor action. In this final show of 2020, we visit the home of a well-known and long-established amateur radio aficionado Don Field G3XTT. A year ago Don moved to a new QTH near Wells in Somerset, and back in March we visited him to find out how he’s settled in.
Bob and Mike get to grips with setting up an OpenSpot Gateway for mobile use. And, we hear from RSGB General Manager Steve Thomas M1ACB on the amazing media response to this summer’s amateur radio revival during the lockdown period. All this and a free-to-enter draw!
