Ham Radio workshop conducted at Kerala State Science and Technology Museum, Thiruvananthapuram from December 11-13, 2010

I had the good fortune of attending the receiver workshop conducted at Kerala State Science and Technology Museum premises.


The workshop was actually very helpful. We built our own 40m JOTA receivers from scratch.
Veteran hams were there to guide the budding ones. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet the veterans and hear them.

receiversintesting Usually it takes more than a month to assemble, troubleshoot and test the receiver, but with the helping hands of VU2DEV and all veterans around, it took only a couple of hours. It’s one of those wonderful moments when the receivers were tested and brought to life. My Rx picked up the transmission from Indonesia !


At the end of the workshop I took home my first Ham radio receiver.

The workshop was very successful and well organised.

Even though I registered late, VU3AUZ Allen managed to get the components and kit in time. I’d like to extend a special word of thanks to VU3AUZ. I am also thankful to SWL Biju, Anith and Shanthi who extended their helping hands to complete the receiver in a single day !
