UM - 9M2MRC - 5th Sept 2005
The MARTS – Universiti Malaya (9M2MRC) booth was well manned on the first day Of the ANGKASA – Piala Menteri, Sains, Teknologi dan Innovasi, water jet propulsion competition.
On hand to help man the booth was 9M2DS–Pak Dollah, 9W2AXN–Adlind, 9W2MRR- Syed, 9W2XL-Bear, 9W2SSJ-Suchart and yours truly 9W2MCT-Tony.
There were not many visitors, probably due to the fact that the competition proper was in full motion. Whilst our friends were busy trying to set up the wireless link, the competition swung into full spin, with times, having the launched rockets coming quickly crashing down to the field. The visitors, including the Media, will turn up tomorrow, being the Finals.
A group of students, from the SMK Kampung Baru Si Rusa, Port Dickson, headed by their ‘cikgu’ (teacher), Pn Amelia Bt Ahzan, spent a good portion of their lunch break to find out more about Amateur Radio Services. On hand to help out was 9M2DS-Pak Dollah, whom cikgu recognized from his past TV expose! Students who were at our booth with Cikgu, were, Abd Razak B Ahmad, Mohd Ridzuan B Yaacob, Muhammad Nazirul B MNohd Yusoff, and Kamarul Ariffin Bin Mohd Rashidi. After a quick lesson, Kamarul was quickly anointed SWL, and he continued to QSO with 9W2SNZ-Shamsul (who was mobiling to Jelebu from his base in Kuala Lumpur) Syabas to Cikgu Amelia, and hopefully, MARTS will be able to see a Junior Club soon.
