1913 - The Radio Society of Great Britain can traced back to the formation of the London Wireless Club, inaugurated in West Hampstead on 5 July 1913. At its first meeting in September of that year, it was decided that the name should change from the London Wireless Club to the Wireless Society of London.
1922 - In November 1922, the name of the Society was changed to that it holds to this day, the substitution of the term 'Great Britain' for 'London' being made with the view to extend the perceived scope of the Society's work.
