Indian hams support the Indian security forces and track down insurgent clandestine radio nets in Darjeeling district, West Bengal. From the Times of India.

Interesting, and I note they even spelled HAM right!
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

Good to see "radio amateurs" being alert and vigilant in these times of terrorism and rampant drug running. 

It's the local radio amateurs that have the edge over most of us as they have the command of local languages and dialects, to us, it's just jibber jabber from some unidentified language.

I often wonder what is being said among the hundreds of Philippine and Indonesian stations that operate with what appears to be an open hand across 6-12MHz in this region. ???

Hermitage Flat, NSW.

Grid Square:  QF56dm.

Yaesu FT-1000D, Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

I realise this is an old post, but I just found it. I've heard the Indonesians on the lower edges of the 40 meter ham band, and just below. I don't know Bahasa Indonesia, but I gather they are just chatting like CBers do. Then they play the game "record us all chanting" and play it back. I have no idea what they say otherwise, though. I have a hard enough time deciphering the Spanish from Latin American hams, and I took it for 3 years in high school...
