The invitation to MARTS to host a booth, completely sponsored by ANGKASA, will see MARTS increase its level of publicity, especially to the younger audience. Your effort, and willingness to share your experience, and knowledge with this young audience, will hopefully see a better pick up rate of Amateur Radio as a key hobby in the coming years. So, please put all your differences aside (if any) to help!
