Having More than 35 years of experience in the Field of Amateur Radio, I have published many articles in prestigious international publications like, QST, CQ-DL, NCJ, Six-News etc.. Here in this web site, these write-ups are intended to give you knowledge about my designs and projects related to the hobby. The articles about foreign HAM activities are intended to share my experience.

Visit to Bharti VU2RBI

Bharti is one of the most heard HAMs from India. After working her many time on the radio over the years, I got a chance to meet her when I was working on a Project in New Delhi. When I was invited to her shack, OM N5KD was also there visiting her. She is a good example for the YL hams to be Radioactive and make friends all over. 

VU2SWS Sarla visit

I do not remember when, But I was able to visit Sarla Sharma VU2SWS during a business visit to Mumbai. We had long chats about Ham radio in our part of the world and what can be done in order to promote. I was also able to meet her husband and daughter in the same trip. (no photo unfortunately)

VU2AB ‘Ram’ visit

During a visit to Madras, I was able to visit VU2AB and had a chat with him. He is my Suffix counterpart from India and we have had many QSOs in the past.Ram is a old timer with good experience in the hobby.

Harsha VU2ISR Visit

On the same day visiting VU2AB Ram, I was able to meet VU2ISR Harsha. I was invited to Harsha’s home for a meal and we operated his station. 

At that time, Harsha was planning to visit Sri Lanka. Hopefully he will in the near future
