As most of the new Hams are from IIH, it is felt that the Orientation programe is necessary for the new HAMs. So,an interactive session on operating procedures will be conducted at Indian Institute of Ham, Ham Radio Station, 2nd floor, Kanteerava Outdoor stadium on Saturday 11th Jan. 2020 at 1800 hours. Orientation also includes how to control roll call nets, setup simple external antennas and to radiate proper signal either on simplex or through repeaters etc. All IIH members please do attend.
