Sad news forwarded by Bhagwati VU3BPZ (8T2BH-AT1ØBPR).
VU2UR Manohar Arasu (82 yrs old) was a Life member of Amateur Radio Society of India (ARSI) and was the Frequency Monitor for several years filing intrusion reports with the IARU-R3 representing ARSI. He was a well known Amateur radio enthusiast with around 46 years of experience (has been on the air since 1967). VU2UR has won many certificates for being No 1 in India and some for being No 1 in the continent. All in all, he has won more then 1200 certificates and plaques included and recognition from organizations across the globe.
VU2UR did join the 3rd WAP Antarctic Activity Week (2006) with his special callsign AT3ANT WAP-Ø21. We keep a great recall of him.
Retired from the Indian Railways in 1997, VU2UR had settled down in the outskirts of Bangalore City, in Kengeri Satellite Town.
WAP express sincere condolences to his family to bear this loss and bring them comfort. May our prayers ease the pain and his soul rest in peace.
