Indiana Historical Radio is documented, preserved and displayed by radio collectors and historians   Pulled together by the Indiana Historical Radio Society, antique radio enthusiasts, primarily from Indiana and surrounding states, enjoy an avocation of seeking out, documenting, and restoring vintage radios.

The Indiana Historical Radio Society ( IHRS ) is visible through the following endeavors:

Radio Meets.  The IHRS meets several times a year at different Indiana locations.  Highlights of the meetings include old radio swap meets, display and operating radio contests, auctions, and seminars. 

 The Indiana Historical Radio Society Bulletin.  Members contribute articles on radio repair and  historical documentation. The IHRS has been fortunate to have dedicated members who have consistently produced a Bulletin for the Society. 

 IHRS Membership.  You will find the Society members eager to talk about radio repair, locating parts, radio history, and “the one that got away.”  We frequently have our nose in a radio (and may not recognize you) but grab our attention and we become a resource in a great network of individuals dedicated to preserving radios and radio history.
