    Dear Hams and SWLs,

    I am pleased to invite you to the first annual convention of Lamakaan Amateur Radio Club. Take time to read through this page and the schedule. We have lined up many interesting events to make this your best convention experience.

    Registration fee is kept very low to make it affordable to everyone. LARC neither seeks any funding nor wants it. Instead, we manage with whatever the delegates can contribute. So, please help yourself.

    We will be setting up an amazing flea market that will sell many transceiver kits, PCBs, torroids, Used rigs, antennas, etc. The entire schedule is packed up 12 really great and very interesting talks, half a dozen demonstrations of everything starts from Using Baofeng for satellites to stand-alone SDRs.
    Lamakaan Amateur Radio Club is completing its 6years of journey with an active homebrewers in the core group.

    • Food: A simple lunch is provided on both days, tea is available round the clock. If you want the famous Hyderabadi Biryani, you can preorder it on the registration form. (We won’t be able to arrange for it for spot registrations)
