The team of the radio station under the callsign signal UR4NWW won in the international competition “Radioinform-test-2014”. The team participants are the students of VNTU Olha Kolisnyk, Olena Horobets and Dmytro Mykhailiuk. The coach of the team is a post-graduate student of VNTU Volodymyr Bielov
The world radioamateur or HAMRADIO movement is over 100 years old. It has its roots in the founding of ARRL (American Radio Relay League) in 1914.
The team of the radio station of VNTU won the first place in the prestigious test group of the collective radio stations, i.e. in the group where several operators from one station participate simultaneously!
The team of the radio station under the callsign signal UR4NWW was presented by the students of the Institute of Radio, Telecommunication and Electronic Instrument Engineering of VNTU Olha Kolesnik (group TC-11b), Olena Horobets (group TC -11b) and Dmytro Mykhailiuk (group RT-12). The coach of the team is a master of sports, a post-graduate student of VNTU, a member of the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine Volodymyr Bielov.
By the way, the sports team (in different membership) of the collective radio station of the Educational and Scientific Center of radio communication systems and radioamateurism of the Institute of RTEIE has also won prizes in other prestigious amateur competitions.
In 2012 our team became the absolute winner of the Championship of Vinnytsia region on shortwave radio communications.
In 2014 the team got the third prize at the 40th open competitions on short wave radio communication for the Cup of the magazine “Radioamateur”.
The silver medal was won at the tournament “Na Pokrovu” (“On the Intercession of the Holy Virgin”) in open competition on short wave radio communication that took place last year on October 17.
The bronze medal was won in the National Ukrainian youth competition on short wave radio communication. The tournament was held on October 22 and was dedicated in memory of Volodymyr Husev.
In the National Ukrainian competition on short wave radio communication “Mini-test YT” that took place on November 19 the bronze medal was won again.
In the ranking table of youth collective radio stations of Ukraine “Radìomarathon 2014” our station is the 2nd in Vinnytsia region and the 21st in Ukraine among over 80 stations.
Last year on the basis of the Educational and Scientific Center of radio communication systems and radioamateurism of the Institute of RTEIE the project “Student radio station” was launched and the editorial board of the radio “Engineer” was formed.
The team took part in the next step of the international space experiment “Shadow-Beacon”.
Now the team of the radio station of VNTU is testing the project "Student radio station on-line", carrying out research on radioamateur air and VoIP networks in the range of ultra short waves, experimentally receiving signals of artificial satellites of various types and carrying out appropriate laboratory work, scientific experiments on radio measurements and cybernetic mechanism design.
There is an idea to create a research student club.
