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.
As we are currently unable to hold a "face-to-face" Annual General Meeting, it was decided to present 4 options to the membership via an online "Zoom" meeting which took place on 11th December 2020 at 19:30.
These options were:
- That the present committee stay in place for 2021
- The committee stay in place until we can hold an AGM or EGM
- Hold an online or postal ballot
- Any other suggestions
There were 13 members present and it was unanimously agreed that we should adopt option 1.
We have taken the decision to close the club premises with immediate effect. There will be no club meetings for the foreseeable future.
Please read the NHS advice on Covid-19 if you require any more information https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
