2100 hrs - 9W2MCT-Tony kicked off the 2m net on request by 9M2DS - Pak Dollah. The Significance ? It was after all, International Women's Day, and what better way to commemorate it than to conduct a 2m net, and also provide a forum for discussion.
Some quick reference to the internet unearthed some interesting information. Would you be surprise then to find out that it wasn't till 2005 that The First Woman President was installed to that position? Taking into the account that, only in 1910, that the womenfolk resorted to grand protests to voice their dissatisfaction over the unfair treatment of general female workers!
So if we want a more active Ham community in Malaysia, if we start today, then in 105 years time, the next generation may see the result! Ok, that was just a tease . . so don't prove me right!
