Ham Radio at graVITas 2014 – An International Knowledge Carnival

Sandeep Baruah VU2MUE gave a presentation on amateur radio to VIT University students as part the technical festival graVITas 2014

He writes:

I would like to express my gratitude to the students of Electronics & Communication Department of Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) University, Vellore on the occasion of their Technical Festival graVITas 2014 for all the affection bestowed upon me and inviting me as a guest speaker to share my radio experiences.

It was a great pleasure to demonstrate ham radio digital communication technologies to the students. APRS -A US Naval Academy ham radio technology was demonstrated to the students using a KENWOOD TH-D7A, TM-D700 Data Radio and my YAESU VX-8DR [Thanks to Kenwood and Yaesu also!].

It was demonstrated how a map on a laptop can be changed by pressing a radio button remotely which cannot be done by a smartphone.

Morse Code technology was also demonstrated as an alternative to digital modes of communication.

Thanks to Khushbu Agrawal, VU3KCE Pranjal Jain, VU3DJV and the entire team for the wonderful hospitality. I am feeling blessed.

Nice note from Sandeep Baruah (VU2MUE), who gave an amateur radio presentation to VIT University as part of the technical festival “graVITas 2014.”  Indian amateur radio operators are doing a lot for their country, providing emergency communications for natural disasters and expertise for the latest Indian Mars orbiter, which attained a successful Martian orbit earlier this week.

A social networking club powered by radio waves | Southgate Amateur Radio News


The Indian Express provides an insight into the Ham radio community, a social networking club powered by radio waves (A social networking club powered by radio waves | Southgate Amateur Radio News http://t.co/C1uNrWGCnE...

A fascinating article about amateur radio in India from “The Indian Express” newspaper.  The newspaper calls ham radio “a social club powered by radio waves.”  In some respects, the Indian publication is correct.  Since its earliest history at the dawn of the 20th century, amateur radio operators have worked cooperatively to help each other and their local communities.  Over the past few years, the 15,000 to 20,000 amateur radio operators in India  have rendered valuable emergency communications services during monsoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, and religious festivals.  As for the social aspect of the amateur service, the newspaper says a group of 40 to 50 hams in Delhi meet each evening at 9:30 to support each other, to render emergency communications if need, and to promote the concept “of a global community.”  Sounds like home to me.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
