On Saturday August 23 and Sunday August 24 RAST conducted a seminar about the 10-metre band on behalf of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) for over 300 participants that included NBTC officials and representatives from amateur radio associations from provinces throughout the country.
The event was held following the announcement in July of new regulations governing amateur radio in Thailand which, among other things, will authorise Thai novice amateur radio hams to operate on the 10-metre band. RAST has proposed that novices should receive training from authorised intermediate class licensees who will be able to grant them with a certificate of competency that will enable them to operate on the 28-MHz band.
RAST President Jakkree, HS1FVL, former RAST President Pornchai (Joe), RAST first vice president Sakol, HS1JNB, RAST senior advisor Prasit, HS1DN were present at the event along with many other RAST officers and members.
RAST had a booth in front of the main auditorium at the hotel which was popular and the sessions were well attended as can be seen in these pictures. -- HS0ZDX
