West Bengal Amateur Radio Club has filed a defamation notice against Arojit Roy (VU3EVW), a young ham radio enthusiast. Roy allegedly made a comment in the WhatsApp Group named ‘Ham Radio International’, which is claimed to have negatively impacted the image and reputation of the West Bengal Amateur Radio Club. The majority of members in the WhatsApp Group ‘Ham Radio International’ are from Bangladesh. The group was recently established by Rahat (S21DI).
Roy – VU3EVW has already expressed regret and offered an apology to Mr. Ambarish Nag Biswas (VU2JFA), the custodian and secretary of the West Bengal Amateur Radio Club. Additionally, Roy has provided a written apology as well.
This unfortunate event appears to be the first of its kind within the Indian Amateur Radio community.
