Myself Sakshi R. Vagadia from Rajkot — Gujarat. I am very happy to get Amateur Radio License with Callsign VU3EXP valid till 2080. Get very similar call to my dear father & Ham VU2EXP OM Rajeshbhai.
I am Ham with no driving license nor do I own my personal cellphone, as I am student of just standard 9th, in St. Pauls School Rajkot ! Fortunately am very lucky to have full fledged hf-vhf-uhf radio equipments of my father 🙂
Since childhood I had seen Ham culture in my family as three more hams are in my family; VU2EXP my father, VU3PLJ my uncle & VU3GLY my cousin. From all of them I was encouraged to be ham.
I am very thankful to GIAR (Gujarat Institute of Amateur Radio) Gandhinagar who trained us & conducted Ham Examination on 25-2-2013. After few weeks I received my successful ham result on 2-4-2013 when I was in std 7th. Bit late but finally Ticket (license) was issued me on 24-4-2015 by Govt. of India, (WPC Wing). I thanks VU2JGI Sir, VU2CPV Sir, VU2WMY Sir, family friends VU2JF, VU2SPF, VU3DJU & other seniors to support & guide us all the times.
I did get wonderful opportunity to live Talk with female astronaut Sunita Williams when she was aboard ISS through ham radio telebridge program at Gujarat Science City Ahmedabad in 2012. Again was memorable experience to Meet & listen Sunita Williams personally in 2013 at GSC- Ahmedabad.
I am very much interested in Astronomy, Space Science too & joined in many awareness programs conducted by my father at various schools.
Apart from these activities, I do learn Indian Classical KATHAK (6th year running) & finishing Brihad Kathak Visharad next year.
Hope I could utilize my ham License by learning subject of my interest from all the Ham dignities & experts.
Eager to have your further guidance. See you on Air. Thanks & 73!
