About the HRSA

The Historical Radio Society of Australia (inc.) was formed in 1982 by a group of enthusiasts committed to the preservation of Australia's radio heritage. From its origins in Victoria, the HRSA has become a nationwide organisation of over 1000 members, with affilliated groups all around Australia.

Members of the HRSA come from all walks of life, but are united by a common interest in radio. There are a number of informal "special interest" groups within the organisation, concentrating on particular facets of the hobby.

Some of these are: 
  • HRSA Books and Publications
  • Radio receiver collecting
    - especially Australian makes
  • Wooden cabinet restoration
  • Bakelite cabinet restoration
  • Amateur radio
  • Test equipment
  • Crystal sets
  • Valve collecting
  • Early television
  • Commercial radio equipment
  • History of Australian broadcasting
  • Sound equipment
  • Aviation radio
  • Radio history
  • Military radio systems

HRSA Meetings

HRSA members hold regular meetings at a number of locations around Australia. Meeting activities include radio displays, auctions, technical discussion and trade in radio components. Visitors are most welcome to attend. See the Activities page for dates and locations.
