It is with a very heavy heart that I share the sad news that we have lost Ananth Pai, VU2PAI at the young age of 47 – well known businessman, loving family man, top DXer and Contester, avid traveller, my close friend and ham student. He was in a true sense a ham ambassador from India who met and made numerous friends (Hams and others) wherever he went around the world.

Over the past month we were planning major upgrades to his already impressive new station and it is still a shock which has not sunk in yet.

We will all miss you a lot – RIP dear Pai and keep working the rare ones and contests wherever you are.

Friends, all of us are devastated with the horrible news of dear Pai’s passing. If you like you can send condolences for his loved ones through this link (select condolences, does NOT require sign-in):
