Waqt Ki Awaaz, a community radio promoted by Shramik Bharti began its test transmission on August 26. It is a culmination of four years old dream, says Rakesh Pandey, the moving spirit behind Shramik Bharti.
Waqta Ki Awaaz is perhaps the only CRS where community independently deployed transmission facility. A team of community members worked in Nomad Laboratory for a few days and taught themselves the basics of transmission systems. They carried their transmitter with them and set it up without any problem.
Nomad congratulates the community members
It could be termed as a historic day. Probably the first ever community radio station very close to the international borders in India has begun its test transmission at around 6.30 in the evening of March 10, with the community and Nomad team jointly celebrating the moment.
On a bright sunny afternoon on March 3, 2012, Heval Vaani, the community radio station at Chamba, Uttarakhand began its test transmission. The radiant blue sky of Shivalik Himalaya reflected the joy of community members who had been waiting for this moment for as long as three years.
Nomad invites community radio practitioners, radio buffs, technology enthusiasts and others to its Laboratory to spend time understanding and working hands on with RF technology and equipment. With the aim of building a critical group of RF Engineers, that could work in the CR sector, we are offering a 5 day Barefoot RF Engineers Training at our Laboratory in Dahanu, Maharashtra.
