Most probably you do not have a suitable Bangla/Bengali font installed in your system. please install SolaimanLipi font for proper view of this site. You can get the font here: http://ekushey.org/?page/solaimanlipi




2. What is Amateur Radio?
Amateur Radio is both a hobby and a service in which participants use various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public service, recreation and self-training.
Amateur radio operators enjoy personal worldwide wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications if necessary, while increasing their personal knowledge of electronics and radio theory. An estimated six million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur radio.
The term “amateur” reflects the principle that amateur radio and its skilled operators are committed to helping communities without financial compensation; whereas commercial radio operates for profit.
In Bangladesh, Amateur Radio license is issued by BTRC (Bangladesh Telecommunications regulatory Commission) in line with ITU Region 3 rules and regulations.
Amateur Radio users are specially privileged by ITU (International Telecommunication Union) and BTRC (Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission) in terms of Radio Frequency spectrum. Unlike other RF spectrum users, radio amateurs may build or modify transmitting equipment for their own use within the amateur spectrum without the need to obtain government certification of the equipment. Licensed amateurs can also use any frequency in their bands (rather than being allocated fixed frequencies or channels) and can operate medium to high-powered equipment on a wide range of frequencies so long as they meet certain technical parameters including occupied bandwidth, power, and maintenance of spurious emission.
As noted, radio amateurs have access to frequency allocations throughout the RF spectrum, enabling choice of frequency to enable effective communication whether across a city, a region, a country, a continent or the whole world regardless of season or time day or night. The shortwave bands, or HF, can allow worldwide communication, the VHF and UHF bands offer excellent regional communication, and the broad microwave bands have enough space, or bandwidth, for television (known as SSTV and FSTV) transmissions and high-speed data networks.
Many of today’s new communication technology and system came from the experiment commence by Amateur Radio operators. Many renowned Organizations in the world has their own amateur radio club or institution, few mentioned are: NASA (The international Space Station in the orbit has it’s own amateur radio setup), ITU, UN (in UN headquarter at NY), and many Universities.

Amateur Radio operators have almost 40 communication satellites in the sky for doing various communication and experiment.
