A dedicated team of amateur radio operators (HAMs) advocating last-mile connectivity, aimed to integrate HAM education in schools for enhanced disaster response, embarked on a significant journey from cyclone shelters in Nachugunta Island, Andhra Pradesh, to participate in the Island on the Air (IOTA) expedition.

  • The expedition's success showcases HAM operators' technical prowess, emphasises community engagement and preparedness for natural disasters, and demonstrates India's amateur radio capabilities while enhancing emergency communication resilience in vulnerable regions.
  • Amateur Radio (HAM Radio) is a widely enjoyed hobby that uses radio frequencies for non-commercial purposes, fostering technical learning, community engagement, and global connectivity through radio waves.
  • Islands On The Air (IOTA), is a program connecting global radio amateurs with island stations, managed by IOTA Ltd and Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), categorising islands into communication groups since 1964.
