Postby vu2iti » Thu Nov 10, 2016 10:20 am

To observe the 5th Death anniversary of our Beloved Vasantha Kumar, VU2VWN, and to commemorate the loving Memory of VWN, the HAM friends of Vasantha kumar together with the Rural Amateur radio Club, Thuruthipuram, Kerala is organizing a Ham radio meet at Aluva, in Ernakulam District on 18th December 2016. Venue is YMCA Hall, Aluva. The meet starts at 9.00 am and ends at around 4.00 pm.
VU2 VWN became silent key on 20 Oct 2011 at the age of 60. His life ended suddenly while he was on a pilgrimage to Chardham, after his Mansasarovar Yatra. He was the man who revolutionized HAM Radio in South India with his QRP transmitter (widely known as VWN QRP). His design of VFO using BFW10 FET and 7 Watts 7 MHZ QRP using BD139 NPN transistor became very popular as all the components are locally available. He was a great Homebrewer.
