Irish Radio Transmitters Society

The Irish Radio Transmitters Society (IRTS) promotes the study and the enjoyment of amateur radio and we work to secure its future in Ireland. We offer essential services to support our members. We encourage inclusion, diversity, and active participation on the air. As Ireland's national radio society affiliated with the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) the IRTS has represented radio amateurs to protect and to grow their worldwide rights since 1932. There are currently over 1000 members of the IRTS!

Code of Online Conduct

Please familiarise yourself and follow our Online Code of Conduct guidelines before you post.

Be kind, be courteous, and give friendly support to all who ask questions. Consider editing before you post so that others do not misread your intent. All posts are publicly viewable, archived, and searchable by Internet engines. Your posts should help others become better radio amateurs now and in the future.

The first two posts by all new users require a moderator's approval to avoid spam and abuse. Afterwards, posts are not moderated unless a breach of our Online Code of Conduct has been observed or reported. If that happened, further posts by that member would be moderated. In case of a continuing breach, access may be permanently withdrawn from the member and further disciplinary proceedings may take place in line with the IRTS Constitution and Rules. Sensitive topics might be subjected to further moderation.
