Leicester Amateur Radio Show

The Leicester Amateur Radio Show was a radio and electronics exhibition held annually at Granby Halls in Leicester between 1972 and 1997. The "show" was a major contributor to club funds for the Leicester Radio Society who provided a number of volunteers to assist in the setup, stewarding and post-show clean-up. We also operated the Bring-and-buy stall for most (if not all) of these years.

With the demise of Granby Halls, the show was moved in 1998 to Donington Exhibition Centre but an uncertain future for the Donington site resulted in moving for the 38th and final show in 2009 to Loughborough University.

Presentations and talks

There has been a tradition for many years at LRS to present trophies and other items to members who have gone "above and beyond" in a particular discipline or to thank them for their contribution to the club. These are usually presented at the AGM (Annual General Meeting). 

There are a number of trophies that are regularly presented, among these trophies are: The G3PBC "Craythorne Trophy", The G5UM "Jack Hum Trophy" and the "Construction Trophy".

We also have regular talks from both members and visitors on a number of topics, a selection are shown here.

Working Parties

As the home of LRS is over 100 years old, it requires regular maintenance. Where possible this is completed by teams of "willing" volunteers. Here are some of the recent jobs.
