The Réseau Luxembourgeois des Amateurs d'Ondes Courtes (RL) (in English, Luxembourg Amateur Radio Society) is a national non-profit organization for amateur radio enthusiasts in Luxembourg. RL supports amateur radio operators in Luxembourg by operating a QSL bureau for those members who regularly communicate with amateur radio operators in other countries, sponsoring amateur radio operating awards and radio contests, and supporting radio propagation beacons in Luxembourg. RL represents the interests of amateur radio operators in Luxembourg before local and international telecommunications regulatory authorities.[1] RL is the national member society representing Luxembourg in the International Amateur Radio Union.[2]

Representatives from Luxembourg were involved in a 1924 resulting in the call for the International Amateur Congress that founded the IARU in 1925.[3]
