Tom K Jose Bridges Distance with Ham Radio:

Hyderabad: From making headlines when he used his Ham radio skills to extend help to those hit by the Hud Hud Cyclone three years ago, 18-year-old Tom K Jose is now a busy person. He is gathering youngsters to join his clan of Ham radio operators. Tom, who became an amateur radio operator at the tender age of 13, is a third generation Ham operator, with his grandfather beginning the hobby, followed by Tom’s parents and now, Tom and his brother. In 2015, he was invited to the world’s largest gathering of Ham operators — the Dayton Hamvention in the US. Here, he earned many fans after he gave a presentation at the event’s Youth Forum in front of 25,000 people. This saw him securing an annual scholarship of $2,000 from the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), which he is now using to spread the word about Ham radio in the city.
