    "Stockport Radio Society, Celebrating 100 Years of Amateur Radio".


    The year just gone for many was a year to forget, but for us 2020 was a momentous one with the society clocking up 100 years of existence. On the 4th June 1920 a group of local enthusiasts came together and held the inaugural meeting of the then Stockport Wireless Society at the Forresters Hall close to the town's famous market place. With a century on the clock and only a short period of inactivity during World War 2, Stockport Radio Society as it is now known is still going strong and in good shape entering its second century.
    An organisation of such age will have a rich vein of history running through it, so much so that back in the 1990's the then Chairman, Laurie Newman G4ZDO was minded to research and document it. His book, released for the 75th Anniversary told our story from formation up to the 90's and referenced some of the many personalities who had joined our ranks over the years.
    So, here we are some twenty six years on and there's plenty more history under the belt waiting to be told.
    Rising to the challenge has been our Secretary and Media Manager, Heather Stanley M6HNS who volunteered to take on the daunting task of continuing Laurie's work. Many hours of research followed which has finally resulted in a book which Laurie would be proud of.
    The fully illustrated edition and featuring input from recent Radio Society of Great Britain President, David Wilsom M0OBW includes Laurie's original publication and individual sections continuing our story.
    The book titled "Stockport Radio Society, Celebrating 100 Years of Amateur Radio" is available now to order and is a must for any past, present, or future member of one of the oldest radio societies in the country. It will bring some colour to many a bookshelf across the land and beyond.

    For more information and to order a copy please contact Heather Stanley M6HNS by email info@g8srs.co.uk or by telephone ....... Details Can be found on the link above.
