South Australian Group

A Message from the President of the Historical Radio Society of Australia (South Australian Group)



Welcome to the website of the South Australian division of the Historical Radio Society of Australia (HRSA.) We are a fully affiliated group within the national organisation, with the parent society formed in the Australian State of Victoria in 1982. Our South Australian group had its origins in the late 1980s and has steadily grown ever since. Click here to go to the new National Website.

What's coming up?


NEW IN 2019 - Our treasurer has pointed out that our bank balance has been steadily decreasing because we have held a number of events that have been subsidised and we have not been bringing in sufficient funds to replace the money that we need to cover the costs of our regular expenses. One of those is the hiring fee for using the St. Cyprian Church Hall for our regular meetings. In 2019 we will be asking for a gold coin donation at all meetings to be held at the hall this year. This will not be policed and members who have not donated a coin will not be punished or banned from the meetings, but we do hope that all members understand our need to cover all our costs.

Next Meeting:



Sunday 24th. February 2019 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Field Trip to Mount Lofty Transmission Tower


NOTE 1: We are planning to hire a 20-seater bus to take members from St. Cyprian Church Hall to Mount Lofty and back. You can leave your car at the Church carpark, or across the road in the public carpark on Melbourne Street. Alternatively, you can car-pool with other members and travel direct to the venue.
NOTE 2: If you would like to travel on the bus, the cost will be $15.00 per person to cover the cost of the bus hire. Please contact the Secretary (Victor Besz) on 0414-620-544 to book your seat on the bus as soon as possible.
