AMSAT-India Regional Coordinator Rajesh Vagadia VU2EXP conducted a Ham Radio Awareness program for summer camp students at Science City Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India on May 20, 2017.
The event was knowledge gaining and full of fun for small group of young students.
Participants learnt basic concept of Radio, their setup, propagation, types of conversation allowed and some limitation, communication modes, features used by hams to send voice, text, images and data, Licencing procedure in India etc.
Students were surprised to realize potential of Amateur Radio to do Satellite Communications or to have contact with Astronauts aboard ISS ! Many queries were satisfied in Question and Answer Session.

We are delighted to observe young students taking interest in Amateur Radio hobby in crowded network of 3G & 4G !
