This Nimbus HAM Radio Society presents workshop on Applications of HAM RADIO aimed at making people aware as well as well acquaint with all technical aspects of HAM Radio. HAM Radios are rarely acknowledged to be a technology of great use and wide applicability, so, we, the HAM Radio Society consider this as our sole responsibility to change the scenario. Treading on the same pathway, we are organizing this workshop to be hosted by Mr. Sandeep Baruah and Mr. Atanu Dasgupta, both of them being highly renowned and well known faces in the HAM world.
