Special contest call for 2017 AT5M

 

I am Madhukar from the beautiful city of Mysore, Karnataka in South India. It is the city of beautiful palaces, natural habitat of wild life, hospitable people and a lot of heritage places.

Was a SWL and BC DXer since 1981 and graduated into HAM radio through chance. Got my Grade - I (Now Classified as General) - in 1987 and have been active on HF both on SSB and mostly on CW - QRP - 7Mhz until 1997.

I have been at the helm of a very successful Ham convetion - Hamfest - in 1994, in Mysore. After the success of this event which had participation from all over VU-land - the event was renamed as HAMFEST INDIA and has been a great show over the years all over India. I have been actively involved in the training of newcomers and bringing them into the Ham radio fold.
