With the collaboration of Addis Ababa University, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, a seminar has been organized which was presented by Ken Claerbout (K4ZW). In this seminar, an overview of last December’s HF propagation study of the 1.8 MHz and 3.5 MHz presented. Attendees have also gained awareness about aspects of HF radio propagation, the unique challenges of the 1.8 MHz and 3.5 MHz bands, lessons learned, and technology available to improve reliability.


For the last couple of months, we have focused more on equipping the new youngsters with the necessary skill and knowledge that would help them to become a better amateur radio operator. Currently, the new youngsters can perfectly operate on SSB and FT8 modes.


We have organized a small workshop that emphasized on creating awareness about amateur radio. In this workshop, an overview of the Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society (EARS) presented and the attendees have also visited the society’s only club station, located at Addis Ababa University.

Plan for the Next Two Months

  • Recruiting new youngsters
