9M2RKK - Revisit yet again



Time : Sometime after 2.00pm
Date : 23 April 2005
Venue : 9M2RKK Bukit Lanjan
Attendees : 9W2XYZ, 9W2AXN, 9W2XL, 9W2SSJ, 9W2RYS and 8W2MCT

It was an overcast humid day when I remembered Tony had called for another repeater party. Talk about humid. The moment I opened my door, my glasses fogged up. Not intending to be the only suffering soul up there, I dragged Adlind up the slopes with me. Ostensibly, to carry the tools.

A moment after we arrived Bear lumbered up the hill with his truck. And his customary jug of ice water. Not long after just before 3.00pm, Tony Yew came up with a Ceylonese and a Malayalee trundling up in a Kembara. Raja and Suchart respectively.

At first sight, the problem was obvious. The old lady had taken a break and her receive antenna was lying horizontal. A quick run up the antenna derrick revealed no damage and Tony proceeded to fix the problem and beef up the clamping system by making do with all unused clamps, bolts and pipes in the immediate vicinity.

To cut a long story short, it was fixed in a jiffy and the pictures are more interesting. Especially the one with Suchart ( Satish ) bending over Tony’s exposed rump. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Wah..I never thought I was gonna be a "Star"!

So you caught me doing "nothing"!
Had to hold Tony's shirt in case he slipped.

Anyway..we all enjoyed the"Antenna" get together.

Hi Guys,
It is nice to see so many of you sacrificed your precious time to get the repeater in excellent conditions. Thank you for your effort. However it is noted that a few of you are non members of MARTS. It is high time you join MARTS... enjoy the facilities provided and at the same time contribute whatever you can within your means.

Enjoy your hobby brother

I dunno whether the borang is still current since the websait is absolete. Will there be any membership drive or campaign to join? This will be a good opportunity for us SWL to meet up with the AJK MARTS. Are they faceless people??
Help us to help you...

Hi SWLs,
I would assume you are a SWL or keen to become one. I'm sure MARTS would be on a membership drive , err are they?
I'm not down playing MARTS, just hope that they are serious abt recruitment and to set the 'house' right.
I, as a member of Marts certainly look forward to meet you in person, like we all say .. eyeball QSO.
