All set for “Ham Fest India 2013”

The count down has begun! In another few hours, the most awaited event Hamfest India 2013 will start. This time this event going to be very interesting, since this being conducted  in  “Gwalior”  a tourist place many of the  Ham Radio delegates  are planning to visit all the surrounding tourist places. Among them particularly, some south Indian Ham’s are drawing plans to visit tourist places like Agra & Delhi.

It is something like real festival of hams in which many Ham’s & swl’s not only from India but also some from abroad also going to be participated. This year about 450 delegates have paid their registration fees so far. When compare to this number is somewhat less than that of the previous gathering in Chennai but hopefully some more are expected to join by making availability of spot registration.

Stimulating technical sessions and lectures, Exhibition of electronic goods and Participation of international industries like I-com, Kenwood, Motorola, etc are going to be some of the major attractions of this event. Above all, eye ball meetings of individual hams   with are each other are going to add more spice to this exhilarating mega event of Ham Radio.

New entrants of Ham Radio in Vijayawada

Group of trainees of “Academy of Ham Radio”, Vijayawada 

We are pleased to inform that the Department of Home affairs has initiated the process of “Police enquiry” which is essential part of awarding Ham Radio License. At about 92 candidates, trainees of “Academy of Ham Radio” who have qualified in the recent Ham Examination   which was held in two prominent Engineering colleges of Vijayawada i.e.,   “VR Siddhartha” and “Dhanekula Institute” are undergoing the process of Police verification.

As it is being on brisk progress, once this process is completed the reports will be submitted back to Wireless planning coordination wing, New Delhi which will enables the candidates to submit the required license fees.  

Also we wanted to share that our previous batch of 45 qualified candidates those who sat for the Ham Radio Examination in Regional Science Centre, Vijayawada, and the candidates of those who completed all the required process are receiving their tickets one by one. Among, some of them have already received their “life time Ham Radio licenses” recently.

With the increasing strength of total   137 new entrants to the existing strength of Ham’s of Vijayawada city of Andhra Pradesh makes it virtually a “Hub of Ham Radio operators”, if the recent trends are any indication.

Ham Radio Operators are being considered to be the national resource and they are potential source of communicators whose services are quiet useful in supplementing the Emergency communication network  at State and National level disasters.
