Repeater NESRAC berfungsi kembali

Semalam monitor 145.375MHz repeater NESRAC telah berfungsi kembali. Jam 2.00 petang tadi aku juga sempat menguji pancar ke repeater dari saltmine di Bandar Tun Hussein Onn Cheras. Ketika itu 9W2YDL abg Asri di jalur menjawab panggilan aku. Beliau RX audio aku 48 sedikit berpasir memandangkan WX hujan renyai. Aku bekerja menggunakan handy dengan kuasa pancaran 5 watt antena rubber duck. Beliau sedang bermobile di Port Dickson. Terima kasih abg Asri atas menjawab panggilan dan selamat berpuasa. Tidak dilupa juga kepada rakan yang bertungkus lumus memperbaiki repeater ini berfungsi semula. Tahniah semua jasamu dikenang. Terima Kasih NESRAC.

A solar flare is heading our way, so conditions will be terrible.

Have you heard s fellow amateur radio operator make statement, A solar flare is heading our way, so conditions will be terrible? Even the news media makes statements like this, as do popular blog: " A spectacular coronal mass ejection on June 7 sent a solar flare heading our way at a speed of 1400 km/s. The flare, said to be of medium size, is likely to result in spectacular aurora and other space weather effects with the potential to cause some communications, navigation, and power-grid problems." The problem with these statement is that they are inaccurate.

Solar flares do not head our way that these statement imply. Faithful readers of this columm know that solar flares often trigger a complex series of events that may lead to the release of solar plasma clouds do head our way, but also know that the flare itself is a nearly instant release of energy much like the burst of light of a flash bulb on a camera.

Solar flares are good examples of some of the most energetic nat…

Nothing heard that answer when i am monitor Arissat-1 and ISS. Sebelum ini aku monitor ada juga signal tapi pagi tiada kedengaran apa-apa negative copy. Laluan ISS diatas Selat Melaka mana bukan tidak boleh dapat sebarang signal. Mungkin rakan lain copy signal tetapi aku tidak mendengar apa-apa. Teruskan mencuba lagi.

Penang ARDF Fun Hunt - August 21st, 2011

Hi Fellow Hunters …
After the last training hunt held on July 31st, there were requests for another hunt to keep the momentum running. Furthermore, I did not have the chance to practice on the 2M mode since was concentrating on the 80M on that outing. This time, I hope to have two 2M beacons running alternatively on the same frequency - 1 min ON and 1 min OFF cycle.
An added twist will be, when the 1st beacon is activated, it will remain activated for 30 minutes before shutting down, and the fox setter will dismantle the equipment and move to another spot. During that duration, the 2nd beacon will take over for an active time of 30 minutes, before shutting down and move to another location.
The hunters will communicate on simplex a frequency, to share information on detecting and homing in on the elusive beacons. This practical session will train our hunters to work as a close knit team to quickly locate the 2 beacons.
Venue: Botanical Gardens, Quarry or MPPP Park, Penang

MENJEJAK ISS DAN ARISSAT-1/KEDR

Stesen Angkasa lepas (ISS) mempunyai stesen radio amaturnya sendiri callsign kini RS0ISS. Kita juga mempunyai angkasawan negara yang pernah menjejak kakinya di sini iaitu 9W2MUS. Beliau pernah QSO dengan pelajar -pelajar di Planetarium suatu masa dahulu yang dipantau oleh 9M2SS. Jadi ilmu radio amatur tidak terbatas qso didaratan sahaja malah kita boleh berhubung melalui satelit. Hari ini satelit ARISSat-1 telah dilancarkan di ISS pada awal Ogos yang lalu. Kesempatan ini perlu diambil kerana pihak AMSAT sedang menunggu laporan uji pancar satelit ini untuk mengetahui sejauh mana prestasinya. Pihak AMSAT akan memberi sijil digital kepada rakan-rakan yang melaporkan penerimaan satelit ini. Sila emailkan audio report anda ke secretword@arissat1.org  . Selain audio anda juga boleh melaporkan imej SSTV, telemetry data dan BPSK telemetry. Bagi rakan yang ingin mempelajari tentang SSTV kita ada rakan yang mahir tentang ini iaitu 9W2KEY yang sangat aktif dalam komunikasi satelit ini. Boleh law…

7th Asia-Pacific Regional Air/Internet Jamboree

Image
The Asia-Pacific Region of WOSM is pleased to introduce the 7th Asia Pacific Regional Air-Internet Jamboree, following the success since the first Jamboree in 2004. The General Association of the Scouts of China will host this year’s event on 6-7 August 2011.


The Air-Internet Jamboree is a regional event in which Scouts can contact each other by means of amateur radio and through the Internet. Having a live conversation with a fellow Scout in some other place in the world gives the same excitement like having a normal Jamboree on the land minus the normal expenses. Just like the normal Jamboree, the Air-Internet Jamboree is also an event during which Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared. It’s a great and unique opportunity for Scouts of all age ranges to communicate with each other as if they are nearby when in actual fact they are all in their own countries. Indeed, Radio Scouting eliminates the distances and fosters a closer relationship of the worldwide Scouting …
