    Thank you Ram Mohanji VU2GRM for compliments. Yes they were also interested in Amateur Radio (licence) as it was also necessary to have a valid Club station plus Satellite Ground station capabilities! Infact some of them already received their tickets recently.
    Seems next generation took enough interest in Birds (Satellites).
