JOTA, 15&16 Oct.

Last October 15 & 16, 2005, whilst most of us were busy with our own weekends. . .9M2DS, Pak Dollah was busy with his helming the JOTA (Jamboree On The Air) at Sekinchan Selangor.
As it was an event of great significance, involving wireless communication, particulaly, where the Scouts are concerned, a quick link was done over the 2m locally, bridging SMK Bandar Utama and Sekinchan.
A very quick set up of a 2m Antenna (loaner from one of our members) and Rig provided by 9W2VA-Andy, and his sidekick 9M2BGL-Lim, enabled the troop of SMKBU2 to QSO with the JOTA link in Sekinchan. Historically, the Head Mistress of SMKBU2 Datin Chin had a quick QSO with the Menteri Besar of Selangor, Dato Khir in Sekinchan.
Although traditionally, the JOTA is done on HF, sadly due to commitments, some 9M stations could not assist in getting SMKBU2 'live'. Nevertheless, the troop showed great interest, and a quick lesson from our Mr Engineer, helped fuelled the interest.
This potos, in entirety, by album can be viewed at the following link (http://photos.yahoo.com/ketuaweb). Selected Photos are printed on this blog.

Syabas to al involved, and lets get it more organised next time round. . . . .

This Punjabi lad is handsome lah.
Datok is fascinated by his turban.
He promotes amateur radio all over the place.... his workshop at MAS, schools , pubs etc.One thing I observed is that likes to shorten his callsign during QSo s. IZW this is VA. He forgot that he is 9W2. So bai please use the full callsign. Show good example to the newbies.

Merry Chrismas and Happy New Year.
One for the road.
