History of SRS

Stockport Radio Society is one of the oldest radio society’s in the UK.

Formed in 1920, originally as Stockport Wireless Society, by a group of local radio enthusiasts, we celebrated their 90th anniversary in 2010 and planning is in place to celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2020.

We provide a focal point for local radio enthusiasts to come together and share their experiences of the hobby and learn of new ones.

Over the years the society has moved around the borough, however, we now have a permanent settled home at Walthew House, Shaw Heath, which is close to the centre of the town.  Walthew House serves as home to our regular meetings and successful training courses.

In addition to meetings to help members keep in touch on a regular basis, we have recently reinstated a regular newsletter which compliments the members internet forum and blog.

We now have a two fully operational shacks at Walthew House and a new tower as well as antenna on the roof.  We can cover all aspects of radio, from VHF, SSB, HF to psk31, Digimodes and lots more.

We have also won the regional club of year (large clubs) trophy in 2015 and 2016.
