The INDIANA HISTORICAL RADIO SOCIETY ( IHRS )
is an association of individuals who are "Preserving for Posterity"
memorabilia of the radio industry. Members are avid collectors
of vintage, antique, classic or military receivers.

Members also collect speakers, tubes, headphones, related
advertising items, early wireless magazines, recordings of radio
programs, hi-fi equipment, amateur radio gear and early TV's.

Currently, the collecting interests of the members are expanding
into  radios  produced in the second half of the Twentieth Century.
Early transistor sets are being researched and collected.

Many members are amateur radio operators.

IHRS has grown from the original thirteen charter members
in 1971 to an international organization with over 200 members.
All true radio historians are welcome. Husband and wife, brothers,
father and son, etc. at the same address are accepted as one
Membership. The IHRS Membership Year is from January 1 to
December 31.

Four meetings are held each year in different areas of Indiana.
Guest speakers present programs pertaining to the Golden
Age of Radio. Old receiver contests, exhibits of radio and
electrical equipment, auctions of old receivers and parts, flea
markets, and swap meets are only a part of the activities
planned for each year's calendar.

An illustrated IHRS Bulletin is mailed quarterly to all members
who may place 'Wanted' or 'For Sale' ads at no charge. Feature
articles on radio pioneers and radio manufacturers are included
in the bulletins.  Members are encouraged to submit original
manuscripts on the repair and restoration of old radios. The
IHRS Bulletins have become collector items. Some back
issues are available.
