VU7LD PRESS RELEASE – 10
December 14 , 2006
On 13th Dec a presentation was made at the Lakshadweep Secretariat conference center. Over 26 staff members from the island administration attended the presentation.
The presentation showcased HAM radio and its many facets and included a live demonstration of HAM station operations with voice and CW.
The attendees also visited one of the operational stations from the DXpedition to get a first hand experience of what we are doing on the island. In addition the use of HAM Radio in an emergency scenario was highlighted and this was appreciated by the attendees.
The island administration is in discussion with ARSI as to how training for their staff could be administered and ARSI has offered to organise training and coordinate with the examiners to conduct HAM license tests on the island itself.
We could soon see a club station on LD!.
