The National Institute of Amateur Radio organized an International Hamfest with approximately 50 multinational and Indian Hams from #2 most wanted country Laksheedweep Islands VU7. The activity took place starting 15th January 2007 from Agatti, Bangaram, Kadmat callsign VU7RG) until 25th Janaury 2007 and Minicoy Island (callsign VU7MY) has been active from 26th January until 30th January. All participants have been officially approved for amateur radio operations. This has been the first ever large scaled dxpedition operation from VU7 including foreign operators, probably the biggest real dxpedition of all time. The callsign VU7RG & VU7MY has been used and reliable QSL managers from each ITU Region have been appointed to handle the QSL's in an efficient way.

All 4 operation sites, manned with many well-known experienced operators, working closely together to avoid multiple stations in the air using overlapping frequencies.
