The HAM Workshop was held on the 30th of March ,2019 from 9.30am to 4pm in the Electronics and Communication Department Lecture Hall. The workshop was conducted by Dr.S.Sathyapal ,VU2FI and Mr. Marcus , VU2VTM from the Indian Institute of Hams.

The Programme began with a positive message of welcome rendered by Dr.Geetha K S , Head of Department and was successful conducted under the guidance of Dr. Usha Rani, Associate Professor,Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering.

Dr.Sathyapal addressed the audience with a brief yet concise introduction to HAM and its operators. He further dwelt upon the reasons why one must consider being a certified HAM- amateur operator and the ways in which it not only served an enticing hobby but also how it could be considered as an aid for the communication within the society during the time of natural calamities, national emergencies and distress. He gradually went on to unfold the steps involved in obtaining the license and the frequency bands provided for the HAM operations. It was brought to the notice of the crowd that hams also provided communication during important public gathering that demand a high amount of security.
