The Hong Kong Amateur Radio Transmitting Society (HARTS) (in traditional Chinese, 香港業餘電台聯會) is an organization representing a majority of the amateur radio operators in Hong Kong, China. HARTS is a charitable institution recognized by the Inland Revenue Department since early 2008. HARTS was established in the 1930s, when the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong was a dependent territory of the United Kingdom. HARTS is the member society representing Hong Kong in the International Amateur Radio Union.
The organization's primary mission is to popularize and promote amateur radio in Hong Kong. HARTS operates and maintains beacons and repeaters at Tai Mo Shan, Tate's Cairn, Victoria Peak, and Tin Shui Wai. The organization has provided communications support for charitable groups and events, and has formed a support network for amateur radio emergency communications. One membership benefit of the organization is a QSL bureau for members who regularly make communications with amateur radio operators in other countries.
