Calling all Hams - Transmitting or not.
Many of us are used to lamenting about practically everything under the sun. Not that it actually does any good. The only thing it does is that it gathers like minded people in small groups nodding to each other. A wiseman once said, 'Great minds think alike...' However, without constructive channels, it is just gossip and teh tarik fodder.
Many of you already know that Bear 9W2XL has been appointted State Liaison Officer for MARTS by the Penang Council. While as expected, he is charged with maintaining the repeaters and associated areas; he has been summoned by MCMC to present ideas from the general populace of our fraternity.
Remember, MCMC is moving into the self-governance sector and is INVITING responses from its member constituents. Let it not be said that you did not have the opportunity to speak your mind or contribute.
If you have the skill sets and/or the inclination to contribute to this effort, please send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org (selaku net controller utama webpage ini) with the following details.
Name . Callsign. Email. Contact Number. QTH. Areas of Expertise or Contribution. Time availability.
We are looking especially for those with a flair for writing, research, argumentative logic, editing, discussion, filing and collating. MCMC has indicated that it would like to open a dialogue with a working committee on areas of Development, Technical, Education/Syllabus, Operations, Policy Issues & Review AND Enforcement.
The first meeting is scheduled this Thursday, for which Bear will present. Following that, there will be other meetings to fine tune and put our recommendations into place for action and discussion. This is your chance to be heard.
In general, we support band plan expansion, unification, common access, CW abolishment, reduced redtape, best practise from other regions, et cetera.
We are opposed to factionalism, improper use of radio and non-compliance to procedure, commercial intrusion into ham bands and the like.
Those already identified as contributors are 9W2CBO, 9W2XI, 9W2MCT, 9W2AXN and 9W2XI. The workload is quite punishing, so we are appealing for others to join the team. Please help us make our hobby much more fulfilling.
