IIH goes Digital: instalation of QO-100 in IIH is in progress : News letter from VU2FI Dr. S.Sathyapal, VU2FI Director.
Good morning to all.
As you are all aware of IIH activities posted on IIH group, VU2FI shack is equipped with Ground station to operate QO-100 and digital modes. All my exercise is to promote Ham Radio amongst the educational institutions.
Now IIH is all set to receive signals via QO-100 GeoSatellite. Hardware for transmission is on pipeline and soon it will be installed. This will be a portable setup. Ground station QO-100 can be installed within 60 minutes approximately. It can be used to contact VU-hams and Hams from 40 other countries with 24/7 connectivity.
I am ready to spend more money on this, as this will popularize, increase awareness and motivate usage of Ham Radio in our country. (IIH classroom is digitized with support of VU3CGJ & VU3XFE both are GC members).
QO-100 setup @IIH will be accessible to our members to operate on notified days. Though many Ham clubs in India are very active and doing Ham radio promotions, IIH is sounding great amongst Dx Hams through QO-100. Thanks to SATCOM Mr.Saravan - VU3OBR for continuous technical support, Mr.Ramesh - VU2YE Asst.Director(Technical) for physical presence and support, Mr.Rajan - VU3JYT for overall support. IIH will recognize them in suitable platform.
We will also plan soon to inaugurate Ground station QO-100 at IIH through our Chairman. IIH will work and promote Ham Radio in a educative way, keeping the high standards of this wonderful technical hobby.
Regarding ARSI Field Day and Hill top DX-ing, though few reminders were sent to groups to setup and operate HAM Radio on that day, no body responded. VU2FI, VU3JYT, VU3OIM and probably VU2YE will be on "HAM YATRA" driving till Shirdi, carrying mobile HF and portable QO-100 setup. Station will be setup at SHIRDI AMATEUR RADIO CLUB, Maharashtra state on Saturday 29th Feb 2020 to operate and demonstrate QO-100 to Shirdi Temple authorities and district administration.
We will be meeting few notable Hams enroute and attend Pune Hams club meet on 1st March 2020. IIH will also promote and demonstrate to District administration in various districts of Karnataka on Communication crises management.
