Our patron goes Off Air

Deeply regret to inform you that our most beloved Patron, former President and the one and only a pillar of Quilon Amateur Radio League OM K.G Nadarajan VU2KGN left us on 22nd Jan 2020. He was such a soft-spoken gentleman, a strong personality and the main strength behind QARL. He was such a stalwart in Ham Radio Operations. As a mark of respect, many hams from different parts of India came to his residence. May his soul rest in peace. We pray Lord Almighty to give his family the strength to bear this big loss. It’s a big personal loss for QARL. KGN was a Godfather figure to many SWLs on paving their way to ham radio fraternity. Dear KGN, we will always follow your advice of not fearing anything and to face the situation with confidence as you taught us. You will always be cherished in our lives, Rest in Peace Sir.

With tears and sorrow
