31st December 2006 marked another milestone for Amateur Radio Operators in Malaysia.
Spearheaded by 9M2DS Pak Dollah, the founder of local 2m Celebration Net, a 2m net was conducted both over the National link frequency of MARTS (first 2m net over National 2m freq) and local to Klang Valley on 9M2RKK.
The event which took place in Ali Baba, a local Amateur Radio community with mostly Marts members, kicked off at 2030 hrs (see 2 postings below with all checked in stations over 2m net)
and ended at about 0200 hrs on 1st January 2007.
At least another 30 stations were on location enjoyng their barbeque which was organised by 9W2AXE/ICE. Each station contributed RM15.00 and they certainly had their monies worth!
Special mention to the chef of the day, 9W2XYZ - Alan, which provided his expertise in that area!
(Unfortunately there were no more evidence of the leftovers to convince those who were not there to taste his handywork!!)
Due to location problem, (too much background noise!) a portable station was set up some 100 meters away to continue the 2m net midway.
well done to those who provided vital logistics and manpower!
