July 1949 Radio & TV News

July 1949 Radio & TV News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919 - 1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

The Amateur Radio Society of India (ARSI) and the National Institute of Amateur Radio (NAIR) are two of India's largest amateur radio organizations today. This story from a 1949 edition of Radio & Television News reports on the first two such established groups in India, named the Amateur Radio Club of India (ARCI), and the Short-Wave League of India (SWLI). Neither appears to be in existence now. Interestingly, the SWLI group was set up for radio enthusiasts who were only listeners - not broadcasters - and were not necessarily licensed. QRZ India still operates as a licensend amateur radio operator database.

First Indian Radio Organization

First Indian Radio Organization, July 1949 Radio & Television News - RF CafeFor the first time in the history of India, two radio organizations, the Amateur Radio Club of India (ARCI), and the Short-Wave League of India, have been established, at Mhow in central India, and at Bombay (P.O. Box No. 6666, Bombay 20), respectively.

The ARCI looks after the interest of all transmitting amateurs, and SWL was formed for non-transmitting members. They publish a combined monthly journal. "QRZ," the only amateur radio journal published in that country.

Both of these stations are non-commercial, run by honorary officers, and are very active on 7, 14, and 28 mc. bands. The call signs used are VU2-ARCI. and VU2SWL, and the headquarters stations are believed to be the finest and best equipped amateur stations in Southeast Asia.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
