The Lietuvos Radijo Mėgėjų Draugija (LRMD) (in English, Lithuanian Amateur Radio Society) is a national non-profit organization for amateur radio enthusiasts in Lithuania. Key membership benefits of LRMD include the sponsorship of amateur radio operating awards and radio contests, and a QSL bureau for those members who regularly communicate with amateur radio operators in other countries. LRMD represents the interests of Lithuanian amateur radio operators before Lithuanian, European, and international telecommunications regulatory authorities.[1] LRMD is the national member society representing Lithuania in the International Amateur Radio Union.[2]

According to the LRMD web site, the society was originally founded in 1938 and was re-activated in 1988. In 1992, it was recognized as the national member for Lithuania by the IARU.[3]
