As the National Radio Society for Ireland, IRTS represents the interests of Amateur Radio, both nationally and internationally.  Membership includes licensed radio amateurs as well as shortwave listeners – many of our listener members are working to become licensed in due course.

In addition to representing the interests of members, IRTS services include …

  • Regular Journal Echo Ireland
  • Weekly radio news bulletin
  • QSL bureau
  • Contests, giving members an opportunity to test their operating skills

You can help to promote Amateur Radio and participate fully in the society's activities by becoming a member.  Any person who is interested in the objects of the Society may be admitted to membership.  The annual membership subscription for licensed members is €30 while for shortwave listeners it is €25.  We also have rates for family membership, members resident outside Ireland, students and the unwaged – full details are on the application form.
