VU3 STJ OM Radhakrishnan , also known popularly & affectionately known on the HAM airwaves as "Radha" became a ham in the year 1996 . He recently constructed a house behind the chennai vandalur zoo and invited fellow Chennai HAMS for a eyeball gettogether on Sunday 12th July . About ten hams managed to spare time and gathered at Radha's house and also helped STJ install aVHF yagi Antenna at a height of 50 feet from the ground level which should ensure he comfortably continues to be able to handle the task of handling the night Chennai VHF Radio Net as "Net Controller" . A very aromatic/hot coffee arranged by his XYL ensured all got some much required energy boost before we would begin the installation work for the antenna .
Radha is also active on HF 40meters apart from VHF . He is a retired Headmaster settled in chennai with his two sons and has been offlate conducting the chennai VHF net in the nights regularly as "Net Contoller" . With his antenna setup he becomes the signal report station for chennai hams from south side beyond Vandalur . VU3 CNN, VU2 KBX, VU2 RF, VU2 TTL, VU2 GHX, VU3 MPK, VU3 RGK, VU2 LFW and VU2 DPN were part of the team of Chennai Hams who made it to today's eyebal gettogether cum VHF Antenna installalation support.
It was a very nice and memorable sunday evening eyeball meet at radha's house and wish we could organise more such house visit eyeballs. All those who visited Radha's house today wish to thank Radha and his XYL for the wonderful hospitality extended.
