Do you have a license to operate wireless sets? Or else this walkie talkie (on UHF range) is illegal to be used. And there are also rules and regulations for HAMs on "mobile" use of the radio sets.

Hello Bangalore HAMs

A visiting colleague from the US wanted to connect with local HAMs. I was wondering if there are any meet ups happening in the next 2 weeks.

I know there was a permanent station in/around kanteerava stadium for the bangalore ham club. Is that still there ? what hours ?

thank you
Srinivas

IIH (http://www.indianhams.com/) at Kanteerava Stadium usually have weekend classes (Sunday) and it may be possible to catch a few hams.

Bangalore Amateur Radio Club (BARC) meets every second Sunday of the month (This month's meeting happened last sunday). Check www.barc.in for the details.

BARC meetings will have a larger participation of hams.

PM me if you need any more details.

It has to be now done online. Please refer to latest circular. Please write to Mr.Omkar Nath, Assistant Wireless Adviser, in WPC, through snail mail to take up your case.

How did you apply for the licence? There was a transition period from snail mail to digital application for the last few months. Now it is a fully digital process.

WPC portal for license applications (including amateur radio)
https://saralsanchar.gov.in/

FAQ for Amateur Radio license:
https://saralsanchar.gov.in/circular...AQ_for_HAM.pdf


There is a contact number in the above FAQ. You may call up and enquire.

Update June/2019
There is an Office Memorandum by WPC, DOT, Ministry of Communications, issued on 07/June/2019 that permits Amateur Radio Stations to operate from anywhere in India except those locations restricted by Government of India.

This essentially means that Hams can operate "mobile" including from vehicles.

This is another landmark change of rule that will encourage many to take up the license.

Finally recived the call sign - vu3fjw . There seems to be a lot of confusion on the process. For me it worked out over the snail mail process. Now need to take the next steps to set up my base station. Thanks for the guidance as always it was helpful.

Sure will disconnect everything, the lightning strike, is the biggest fear I have. The next being the strength of the vertical antennas!!
can you share the details of the dealer. I am trying to get a 991 without any success for some time.

Congrats on getting your call sign and welcome to the club!! The official dealer is Sanchar Telecom, from whom I have procured some equipments initially.

You also have Radio Brewery in Chennai, and have a purchased from them as well. Quite good pricing.

Apart from that you have Ananthapuri Electronics in TVM.

Hope that helps

Thanks . Radio Brewery seems to be a reliable source , price seems to be reasonable for most of the stuff. ordered the base & mobile antenna from them, BTW they deal with ICOM alone hence did not place the order for the radio. some how more inclined to 992a due to the all mode capability.
