Indian Women Hams Inspired to Learn

Indian women are following trendsetter Bharathi Prasad VU2RBI in taking up the amateur / ham radio hobby.

Prasad has been a successful operator since becoming licensed in 1980, and has won many awards.

Prasad was one of only 50 female operators when she achieved her callsign using her science education to supplement the electronics teaching of amateur radio.

At the time of licensing, Bharathi was unable to speak english, and learnt in her native tongue - Telegu.
