One of the worlds most decorated radio hams has been invited to meet with the British Royal Family.

Steve Herman, W7VOA, is in New Delhi with the details:


Bharathi Devulapalli Prasad, VU2RBI, announced on her Facebook page (Feb. 22, 2010) that she has been invited to speak at the Commonwealth Day Observance in London in March 8th, 2008 in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizebeth, HRH Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and all Commonwealth High Commissioners.



She says she will be talking to the distinguished group about science technology and society, which she says will include her personal experiences on ham radio.



Bharati, one of ham radio's most prominent YL's, has won several significant international awards related to her service to society by using amateur radio.



She was part of the Andaman DXpedition team that won the ARRL's 2005 International Humanitarian Award. The December 2004 earthquake and resulting tsunami that devastated South Asia coastal areas swiftly shifted the role of the DX operation into an emergency communication link with India's mainland.
