Mission Statement:

"The principal objective of Amateur Radio Convention And Conference Samity is to organize various activities, events, conventions, seminars, meetings, exhibitions, demonstrations and scientific researches etc., to promote the scientific hobby of Amateur Radio. 

We also wish to ameliorate the sufferings of the needy and ailing and provide communication support to government agencies and other humanitarian agencies at the time of natural or man-made calamities, disasters or emergencies with the help of Amateur Radio."

We have undertaken classroom training for Amateur Radio and assisting in conducting the ASOC Examination since 2014 for interested amateurs. Now we have developed excellent online courses can help a radio amateur to pass their respective grade examinations.

We assist in running the Amateur Radio Club (VU2AHG) of the Assembly of God Church School, Park Street, Kolkata with our equipment and we provide free Amateur Radio training classes for the students. The aim is to participate in the ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) Project of directly talking (not through tele-bridge) with astronauts on board the International Space Station.


Specialized Branches:

ARES Scout Group: We have established a Special Branch of a disciplined, uniformed and properly trained scout group under Bharat Scouts & Guides, entitled Amateur Radio Emergency Services Scout Group (ARES Scout Group). We teach boys scouting with training for emergency amateur radio service. We have training programmes for boys of 5 - 25 years of age. There are three sections: Cub (5-10 years), Scout (10-17 years) and Rover  (17-27 years). The aim is to make each scout first a Rajya Puraskar Scout and finally a Rashtrapati Puraskar Scout. 
 

NASA Radio Jove Project: 

We have established a high power radio telescope in Kolkata and are collaborating with Radio Jove Research Project of NASA. Radio Jove is Solar and Planetary Radio Astronomy Research.

Book Release:
(At East India Ham Meet 2017 and Outreach International Radio Fair 2017)alt

alt'Life of a Rascal' is about an inventor, named Arjun; an unknown Indian who lived in a period that was rapidly changing but possibly, he may have been born much ahead of his time. The book is chronicled in the form of a journal, giving the details of his birth, the family in which he was born, his childhood full of mirth and laughter, his education, his experiments with science and his own life, his philosophical insight of the meaning of life, his inventions, achievements and failures and his realization (partial) of the utterly elusive inactive Benchmark of Dark Energy (Energy that cannot be perceived and the source of all energy, that which still exists in this Universe) and the helplessness of karma over Providence. What may possibly inspire the reader is his undeterred confidence and his will to live to perform his Karma before he fades into the sea of nothingness. Written by Indranil Majumdar, VU2KFR, the book priced at ₹ 399.00 is available from our online store at ₹ 359.00. Use discount code ARCCS for getting the ₹ 40.00 discount.
