This is Vikram from Pune. I am interested in becoming a HAM operator and would like to know if there are any HAMs in Pune who are willing to guide me in my journey to becoming a HAM.
Hoping for a few positive replies, along with email ids!
I am in Pune and has been opeating a HF Station since last August 2008. If you need any help, you can speak to me at my cell No. 9423234493. I am residing at D.S.K.Ranwara at Bawdhan, NDA-Pashan Road.
I will be more then happy if I can help you in your journey.
I need your advice. I am 58years, staying in Pune. Diploma In Mechanical Engineering .. I am not much of Electrical/ Electronic guy. I sure can understand if i approach any subject with patience.
I heard about HAM during my school days in 1970 and cherished a desire to be a HAM operator , but never had the time or money to invest in this hobby
1. Do you think at my age of 58 years , i can get the hang of HAM operation?
2. Will i be able to clear exams ?
3. Do i need to attend some classes ?
4. Is there a help / or a club available in Pune
i am confident at personal level and still working and i am not retired and have good health.
Any suggestions from you
or anyone else can pls reply me and guide me on this
Answers are as below -
1. Age NEVER restricts for Ham License - the place where age restricts is
that below 12 years of age you can not apply for license.
2. Definitely you can clear the exam - because you have interest in this-
you will learn things very fast
3 Attending classes will be a bit difficult in Pune as now a days there are
no such classes here- but self study will make you more powerful-
because then you can study more- we all are there to help you in all
4 Please refer Answer No. 3
5 This is additional answer- Google is your best friend - search as much
material as much you can - take help from people and success will be

This EP452 looks as if it is SAP User ID (Joking !!)
You may get rid of Electronics theory part only - that too if you ask for concession in your Exam application form at the time of submission.
But, I don't think this Electronics theory is difficult part, what is your opinion - do you want to appear in theory or you want to skip?
