9MV5 Call on 9M2RKK, 22 April 2006

On the 22nd April 2006, round about 1200hrs, there was a call, identifying itself as 9MV5, over the airwaves of 9M2RKK, Bukit Lanjan. A while later, 9W2XL-Bear identified himself and declared that the 147.980 mhz frequency was specifically for the use of Amateur Stations.
At this point the operator using 9MV5 then identified himself, as 'Lt.Sairi' of the 'KD Seri Kelang' , classified as a 'Stone Brigade', based at Pulau Indah, Klang. It was also then, the 'station' stated its intentions to test Amateur Airwaves using Naval equipment for the intentions of 'Emergency' situations. 9W2XL, then informed 9MV5 of the other 'main' Amateur Bands which would be useful, referring to MARES and ASTRA frequencies.
As this was out of the ordinary, and it is at this time that we would like to inform all bloggers, that indeed, a verification is required before replying to calls, but common sense prevails! It could well have been a life and death situation. Until clear and precise instructions from the authorities prevail, as well as blogs/websites/or other means, that could provide vital up to date information to all, calls of this nature should have at least been given some respond.
The source of this particular comment, further states that verification with the Issuing Authorities, clarifies that such a call was indeed made over the Amateur Band.
For further information, please email your queries to martsnews.comment@gmail.com

This message comes to you QSP from 9W2XL-Bear.

Rm25.00 - truth or myth?

All SWL who paid him RM25 to Tony for 'processing fee' is requested to formally write in to the council. If council do not receive any complain, then issue considered closed, as malicious rumours.

QSP de 9w2mct

ps - message was misunderstood by de moderator.

National Link - info update

The MARTS 2m National link is experiencing intereference due to the proximity of the TX and RX frequency concerning thye repeaters in Brinchang and Ulu Kali, such if one transmits and receive in Klang Valley via Ulu Kali, then it is ok, But as soon as there is traffic coming from North, then the receive is out swamped thus resulting in severe QRM.

The Motorola Team, which was generous enough with their contirbutions is aware of this, and is acting to rectify the matter. Kindly inform any stations wishing to enquire or know more about this to contact the MARTS council.
The council will be meeting on the 16th April. (info posted on MARTS website)

The Repeater info is de 9M2LAW.

QSP from 9W2MCT-Tony

We blog just about anything

It was Tuesday evening - 12th April 2006 and there were a couple of stations who gather around sharing a couple of laughs, the usual. As every eyeball would be, they were indeed some technical talk and most took the opportunity to 'surfing' around looking at various radio offerings.

Among them were a couple of paintball celebrities from the popular group 'Killer Beez' who out shined more experience team and made their presence felt. Syabas!!!

I suppose i'm blogging this b'cos i have nothing much to say, Yes! you are probably right. Perhaps i 'm just too tied up with work and not opening my ear big enough to get the scoop of the day.
You might even think that this is up right boring, right? Yup! i can't deny this .. Nope! i was not referring to the 'Killer Beez'

What can you do as an individual? You are encourage to sent me 'stuff' you hear or even things that is going on around you that you might want to share with your fellow operators.

So blog up, we welcome email at martsnews.comment@gmail.com.

I think its not correct to close down this blogspot.
We do not want to "kow tau" to all those superduper "anonymous" people that dont even want to identify themselves.
If we close this blogspot..those guys win..


We have reached a pinnacle whereby even the "official" web site carries stale news.

Keep on Blogging!

Seems blogging personal opinions is becoming a crime huh. And worst, it becomes a violation of engaging in offensive privacy intrusion by abusing personal relationship with the help of enforcement officers to accomplish personal goal. Suchart, you’ll be going to jail if I found out and rest assured that I have made a copy of what you have posted on the blogspot.

I’m sitting back and wait for you guys to come with a warrant of arrest to convict me of a crime in blogging.

Dear all,

First of all, I don’t intend to make things worst. So please, do not criticize. Although I’m anonymous, this is because I don’t want to be recognized with the suggestions below which you might come across later.

I guess Jello didn’t mean to ask you guys to bring down the RKK & RUK. Please be understood that I’m not against you all as well. I guess the point is why we should have two websites within a club. It creates split, encourage polarization and segregation and this is the least many people want to see within MARTS.

People doing a good job posting updated info on the Internet blogspot doesn’t necessary mean they’ll do the same good job in managing the club. Updating info and management are two very different issues.

Leadership comes naturally and you can sense it when people around unanimously agreed to what you said and show respect when they talk to you. Not by creating split by setting up blogspot.

We are into amateur radio, posting info on the internet is the secondary priority for MARTS, although it is still important for those who missed the real-time broadcast, but does it really worth to put fists up and fight to reopen the blogspot?

As for what our club to do to further increase our popularity and publicity, let me suggest to you:

1. We can promote ham radio to schools. Talk to the principals, bringing in the hobby as one of the extra-curricula activities. We assign Tony (he’s a good speaker) to do the liaison. Arrange educators to give talks in the club. Educate the kids and I’m sure many will have strong interests. Tell them the story of radio during WW1 and WW2. That’ll definitely bring up the interests.
2. We could talk to the education ministry. Introduce the use of CW during NS training. Educate the kids so they not only know how to play M16 and climb walls.
3. Organise field days DX here in KL, working hand in hand with Penang guys and try hit each other using simplex frequency by using homebrew yagi.
4. Organize field trips to Fraser’s Hill, Cameron highlands and do DX-ing. (of course, participating members will pay for themselves).
5. Talk to Penang guys about how we could provide further assistance to coordinate nationwide activities.

The above are what you guys can do for the club. Not posting info on the blogspot. For those who are interested to win a seat in the upcoming AGM, please do all the above. You will definitely win a lot of confidence.

Sometimes its hard to understand what people are thinking or saying, its normal to misinterpret things but with statements like :

"since u like blogspot, then close rkk & ruk la. why need repeaters?"

its hard not to ignore.

I see no harm in having another website providing information as long as it does not claim to be the "official website".

In the short time I started to follow this website (blogger) I fail to find any info that the admin is gunning for a post in the club unless the info came from outside or people are speculating unnecessary.

What puzzle me most is if the admin or the website (blogger) is considered not fit for anything, why then put a suggestion on how to run the club better, shouldn't the suggestion be put in the club official website.
