Le Tour De Langkawi 2011

Stage 9 - Melaka to Nilai


Monday, 31 January 2011
151.7 km

Start venue: Hang Tuah Mall, Melaka

Start time: 1100 hrs

Finish venue: Nilai Square, Nilai

Estimated time of arrival: 1413 hr
Stage Summary
Stage 9 - January 31 - Melaka-Nilai (151.7km)
The penultimate stage has all the ingredients to provide a final twist to the tale of the 16th edition of Le Tour de Langkawi. It begins in the historical city of Melaka, the seat of the old Malay Sultanate that ruled the region and in more recent times home of the Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF).
That final twist could come from those brave enough to have a go in the tricky terrain that launches the peloton off the startline in Melaka. A combination of winding roads and undulating terrain could provide the opportunities for a last gasp attack to exact changes to the timed classifications.
Otherwise, the peloton would just focus on the race between the sprinters eyeing the points classification victory with three intermediate sprints on offer at Linggi (70.7km), Rantau (83.8km) and Mantin (134.7km), with a small disruption to the flat profile of the stage coming in the form of the sole category 4 climb at Lenggeng, 120.7km into the stage.
The finish at the trading and industrial town of Nilai not only provides expectations of an unpredictable outcome, but also the chance for the race entourage to grab some bargain buys in the variety of wholesale and factory outlets that colour the surroundings of the finish venue.

Renew Lesen

Pada 25Januari 2011 yang lalu aku memperbaharui lesen Kelas B Radio Amatur yang telah tamat pada 31 Disember 2010 di Surunhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia, Cyberjaya. Surat notis terlupa hendak dibawa membolehkan pembaharuan tidak dapat dilayan. Atas budi bicara pegawai yang bertugas di kaunter itu pemeprosesan dapat dilakukan dengan segera. Menurut beliau AA akan dikeluarkan dalam 3 hari berikutnya. Aku menukar alamat rumah baru meyebabkan dikehandaki menulis surat atas pertukaran itu. Sementara menunggu proses pembaharuan lesen itu sempat juga bersalaman dengan rakan ham 9W2RDC dari Port Dickson yang ketika itu ada tugasan di SKMM. Menurutnya alang-alang dah sampai sini terus juga memperbaharui lesen juga.Jarang kedengaran callsign ini kerana masih belum memiliki alat untuk memancar. Ada kesempatan dan kelapangan boleh qso diudara pula.

Marshall QSO 147.585MHz

Pada sabtu 22 Januari 2011 sekitar jam 9.30 pagi aku monitor di jalur 147.585MHz kedengaran audio rakan-rakan sibuk menjalankan tugasan marshall.

Congratulations---ARISS 10th Anniversary

All,

My heartiest of congratulations to all the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) volunteers and their international sponsoring organizations on the 10th anniversary of the first Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) school group contact.
It is breathtaking to see all that you have done this past decade. Ham radio operations on ISS started with the first Moscow/USA checkout contact on November 13, 2000—just 11 days after Expedition 1 took up residence on ISS. That paved the way for the historic first school contact between the students at the Burbank School in Burbank, Illinois and Bill Shepherd, KD5GSL on December 21, 2000. Long-time ARISS volunteer Charlie Sufana, AJ9N, mentored that first contact…preparing the Burbank students, teachers and community for an activity that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Since then, the ARISS team’s volunteer spirit and can-do attitude have kept the ARISS stations on ISS operational the entire decade--through all 26 crew expeditions. Over 560 schools or organizations have performed ARISS contacts -- inspiring tens of thousands of students and enabling millions and millions, worldwide, to experience the human spaceflight journey and to share in the excitement and camaraderie of the ham radio hobby. The international team has installed antennas and equipment in several ISS modules, deployed SuitSat, delivered ARISSat, and a school contact was a prominent “star” in the IMAX ISS 3D movie. Most importantly, you have inspired a legion of students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
On my desk is a copy of NASA’s “Reference Guide to the ISS.” I recently noticed that on the back cover is a beautiful photograph of ISS with the Sun shining prominently on one of the ARISS antennas mounted on the Russian Service Module. That photograph reminds me of a story from the U.S. Constitutional Convention when statesmen Benjamin Franklin, looking towards the president's chair, at the back of which a rising sun happened to be painted, observed to a few members near him, that painters had found it difficult to distinguish in their art a rising sun from a setting sun. Franklin said "I have often…looked at that behind the president without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting: But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting sun."
Indeed….the sun that shines over ARISS is a rising sun.
Congratulations to the ARISS international team and their sponsoring organizations!!

Bercuti di Genting Highlands

Pada 21 Disember yang lalu baru aku sempat bercuti selepas saltmine habis 20 haribulan. Sempena hari lahir xyl aku membawanya bercuti di peranginan Genting Highland ini. Sebelum bertolak sempat juga qso dengn Tok Uban 9W2OOA di base, trafik yang dimaklumkan bahawa rakan ADARC turut ke sana untuk membaiki reapeter Astra linking yang telah tidak berfungsi sejak lebih sebulan yang lalu. Aku terus ke Kereta kabel genting tetapi tak kusangka punyalah ramai orang sudah beratur untuk menaiki kereta kabel ke atas. Hampir satu jam dua puluh minit beratur tibalah giliran kami menaikinya. Lega rasanya bila dapat naik dan melihat pemandangan yang indah. Tiba dipuncak memang sejuk kedinginan dan terus ke First World Hotel untuk check-in. Nasib baik ada bilik kosong lagi walaupun fullhouse. Terpaksa menunggu lagi untuk check-in sebelum masuk kebilik dan terus berjalan-jalan selepas menyimpan barang. Cuaca di sana sejuk dan berkabus walaupun tak hujan. Pengunjung memang ramai kerana musim cuti sekolah. Malam tu jalan-jalan lagi dengan cuaca yang berkabus di puncak. Suhu mencecah 14 darjah selsius. Balik bilik aku monitor mana-mana audio yang dapat kedengaran melalui handy yang ada. Bilik di tingkat 14 di menara 2 menghadap ke Bentong.
Monitor 146.900MHz tak qsl frequensi mana kedengaran rakan 9W2FLX, 9W2ANK, 9W2TSG dan 9W2EOW kedengaran qth Mentakab, Bandar Jengka, Bukit Angin dan Temerloh. Mendengar rakan-rakan akan berkonvoi untuk RAE esoknya di Kuala Terengganu. Kemudian monitor 146.100MHz kedengaran rakan 9W2MMF, 9W2TTW dan 9W2TTV qso. Astra linking berfungsi semula monitor di 145.675MHz, 146.750MHz dan 147.925MHz.
Keesokanya 22 Disember merupakan RAE kedengaran rakan-rakan sibuk memberi sokongan kepada calon-calon semoga berjaya.
