Greetings from Odisha. Eastern India Ham Meet 2018 is going to be organised at the world famous and historic city of PURI in Odisha on the 17th and 18th of March 2018. This event is being organised to promote and popularise amateur radio activity in the eastern states of India. However, on a larger scale it is an event for the entire HAM fraternity of India. Last year we have organised the same event at Mandarmani sea beach near Digha in West Bengal. It was a big success thanks to the efforts of HAMs from Bengal and Bihar. It was then decided to hold this event every year on a rotational basis. This is the first time that any HAM related event is being held in Odisha. We, the HAMs from Odisha are therefore very excited and are looking forward to this event with great enthusiasm. We are being actively supported by HAMs from Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, Bangalore and Hyderabad. We are sure that many more will join us in the coming days. Lot of activities has been planned during the event including workshops, demos, talks on HAM related topics, flea market and so on. We promise to make this event a wonderful and fruitful experience for all the participants. Please register yourselves in great numbers and make our presence felt on the amateur radio map of India and the world.
