Portable Taman KOSAS, Ampang


Atas urusan saltmine untuk kali  ketiga dalam bulan ini aku keluar lagi, kali ini portable di Taman KOSAS Ampang pada waktu pejabat.

Bermula pada hari ini 30 Oktober hingga 1 November 2012 aku akan berkursus di sini.

Jika berkelapangan bolehlah aku monitor di mana-mana jalur. Kali ini aku tidak terjumpa mana-mana jelopi yang bercallsign di sini.

Lelaki sesat di Gunung Nuang ditemui

KUALA LUMPUR — Seorang pendaki, Faiz Wan Zahidi, yang sesat dan dipercayai hilang sejak Isnin lepas di Gunung Nuang, Hulu Langat ditemui oleh pasukan penyelamat pada 5.50 petang semalam.


Penolong Pengarah Operasi Bomba dan Penyelamat Selangor, Mohamad Sani Harul berkata, Faiz, 32, ditemui di atas gunung, tiga jam perjalanan dari kaki gunung oleh anggota bomba, dalam keadaan selamat dan stabil.

Beliau berkata, Faiz yang sesat ditemui dalam keadaan keletihan dan dua hari tidak makan.

"Mangsa kini dirawat di Hospital Ampang untuk rawatan susulan,” katanya kepada Bernama ketika dihubungi di sini.

Sani berkata, pendaki dari Bangi itu mendaki secara individu dan telah dihantar oleh rakannya ke sana pada Isnin lepas.

"Kehilangan mangsa hanya disedari oleh rakannya apabila seharian tidak pulang. Rakan mangsa cuba menghubunginya tetapi tidak dapat,” katanya.

Operasi menyelamat dimulakan pada 1 petang semalam sejurus menerima laporan dari pihak polis.
Turut membantu operasi mencari dan menyelamat ialah polis dan anggota Jabatan Pertahanan Awam (JPAM), keanggotaan keseluruhan melibatkan seramai 27 orang. — BERNAMA


Operasi Mencari dan Menyelamat Mangsa Hilang Di Gunung Nuang


24 Oktober 2012 - Penolong Pengarah Bahagian Operasi Kebombaan dan Penyelamat JBPM Negeri Selangor, PgKB I Mohd Sani Harul berbangga dengan Pasukan Penyelamat yang bekerja keras menjalankan operasi mencari dan menyelamat ini. Menurut Komander Operasi, PBK II Seman Awang BBP Kajang, mangsa dikatakan hilang pada 22 Oktober 2012 di Gunung Nuang, Ulu Langat (Sumber PDRM). Walaubagaimana pun, mangsa berjaya dijumpai kira-kira pada jam 5.50 petang dalam keadaan lemah. Mangsa yang berumur 32 tahun itu berjaya dibawa turun pada jam 8.30 malam. Operasi SAR ini melibatkan pelbagai agensi antaranya PDRM, JPAM, Ambulans dan Pasukan Bomba.

Rupanya berita tentang kehilangan orang sesat di Gunung Nuang adalah benar. Tidak silap aku ada monitor di jalur komersial yang mengatakan terdapat laporan tentang seseorang ingin meminta bantuan di Gunung Nuang.
Ternyata si pelapor ingin meminta bantuan adalah benar kerana laporan dari pihak berkuasa dan media telah mengesahkan kejadian itu.

Kenderaan bergerak perlahan di jambatan Sg Semenyih Lebuhraya Utara Selatan Arah Selatan


Bermula jam 4.30 petang ini kenderaan  Lebuhraya Utara Selatan di jambatan Sungai Semenyih arah selatan telah bergerak perlahan. Ketika artikel ini ditulis kadangkala kenderaan berhenti menunjukkan kesesakan untuk pulang ke selatan tanahair menyambut Hari Raya Aidiladha esok.

Pemerhatian ini aku lakukan daripada base station yang dapat melihat pergerakan kenderaan yang perlahan. Cuaca pada ketika ini mendung dan kemungkinan besar akan ribut petir berdasarkan ramalan cuaca.

Kepada pemandu yang pulang berhari raya berhati-hati ketika memandu. Semoga selamat sampai dan berjumpa orang yang tersayang.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha diucapkan kepada muslimin dan muslimat.

Ujian Kod Morse kedua 2012


Hari ini telah berlangsungnya Ujian Kod Morse kedua bagi tahun 2012. Aku berkesempatan bertandang di SKMM Cyberjaya untuk memberi sokongan kepada calon-calon yang akan berjuang hingga titis terakhir.

Suasana ruang legar SKMM sebelum ujian


Eyeball sempena Ujian CW


9W2YND Mohd Sahidan Bin Abdullah


Ini aku hehe 9W2DYA terima kasih Hatta 9W2MHJ ambil gambar ini hehe


9M2BMX Azman


9M2AIR Halim dan 9M2AIS Faiz

Kemudian kami semua masuk ke dalam ruang legar bersalaman ramai rakan yang datang memberi sokongan kepada calon-calon. Ramai nama besar hadir memberi sokongan pada kali  ini, memeriahkan suasana ujian untuk kali kedua bagi tahun 2012.

Aku juga dapat bersalaman dengan 9M2AUR Aimil dan rakannya dari Melaka. Dia bertanya pada aku bila nak ambil cw? hehe kena belajar dulu baru boleh ambil ujian.




Tepat jam 10.00 pagi ujian telah bermula di bilik seminar. Gelagat rakan-rakan di luar bilik dapat dilihat untuk mengetahui apakah soalan yang dikemukakan pada tahun ini.






Ohh begitu rupanya ujian ini dijalankan sekarang baru aku faham bagaimana suasana ujian ini berlangsung. Rakan memberi tip bagaimana kita hendak menghadapi ujian sebegini. Secara tidak langsung aku juga dapat mempelajari sesuatu walaupun buat masa ini sememangnya aku tidak faham Kod Morse itu.




Selepas setengah jam calon-calon keluar dengan pelbagai reaksi. Ada yang berpuas hati dengan pencapaian peribadi dan ada sebaliknya. Ini adalah perkara biasa pada suasana ujian. Menurut blog 9M2BAL Iqbal seorang calon telah digagalkan kerana menggunakan smartphone untuk decode. Mungkin selepas ini semua calon tidak dibenarkan membawa sebarang gajet terutamanya smartphone yang mempunyai CW reader.

Berikut adalah gambar dari blog 9M2BAL: http://9m2bal.blogspot.com




Sebelah Pak Yop itu adalah ustaz Ilyas 9W2JJF

2012 CQ WW DX SSB Contest

SSB: October 27-28, 2012


CW: November 24-25, 2012

Starts: 0000 UTC Saturday

Ends: 2359 UTC Sunday

I. OBJECTIVE: For amateurs around the world to contact other amateurs in as many zones and countries as possible.




II. BANDS: Six bands only: 1.8, 3.5, 7, 14, 21 and 28 MHz.



III. For all categories:



1. All entrants must operate within the limits of their chosen category when performing any activity that could impact their submitted score.



2. You must not exceed the total output power limitation of your chosen category on any band. Total output power on any band at any time is measured at the output of the active amplifier(s).



3. Operating location: All transmitters and receivers used by the entrant must be located within a single 500-meter diameter circle or within the property limits of the station licensee's address, whichever is greater.



4. All antennas used by the entrant must be physically connected by wires to the transmitters and receivers used by the entrant.



5. Only the entrant's call sign can be used to aid the entrant's score.



6. A different call sign must be used for each CQ WW entry.



7. An entrant's remote station is determined by the physical location of the transmitters, receivers, and antennas. A remote station must obey all station and category limitations of Rule III.



8. A competitor who wishes to be judged for a top score in their category must agree to a potential visitation at any time during the contest by an observer appointed by the CQ WW Contest Committee (CQ WW CC). Failure of the entrant to respond to our correspondence or to allow a CQ WW CC observer full access to the contest QTH during the full contest period may result in the competitor being removed from award eligibility for 3 years.



9. Self-spotting or asking to be spotted is not allowed.



10. Only one signal on a band is allowed at any time.



11. Remote receivers outside the limitations of Rule III.3 are not allowed. The only exception is public remote skimmers which are allowed for the Multi-Operator, Assisted and Xtreme categories.



12. When two or more transmitters are present on the same band, a hardware device MUST be used to prevent more than one signal at any one time; interlocking two or more transmitters on a band with alternating CQs (soliciting contacts) is not allowed.



13. Post-contest correcting of call signs by using any database, recordings or confirming QSO's is not allowed (Rule XII.2 always applies).



14. All competitors are expected to have read and to comply with the rules of the chosen category. The entrant agrees that any violation of CQ WW contest rules makes the entrant subject to either a red or yellow card (see rule XIII).



IV.TYPES OF COMPETITION



A. Single Operator (All-Band or Single-Band): only one person (= the entrant) can contribute to the final score during the official contest period. Call sign alerting assistance of any kind places the entrant in one of the Single Operator Assisted categories. For all single operator categories, all-band or single-band, only one signal is allowed at any time; for the all-band category the operator can change bands at any time.



1. Single Operator: QSO alerting assistance of any kind is not allowed.



a. Single Operator High Power (All-Band or Single-Band): Total output power must not exceed 1500 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



b. Single Operator Low Power (All-Band or Single-Band): Total output power must not exceed 100 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



c. Single Operator QRP (All-Band or Single-Band): Total output power must not exceed 5 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



2. Single Operator Assisted: Any public QSO alerting assistance is allowed for all assisted categories. This includes, but is not limited to, DX Cluster-type networks, local or remote Skimmer and/or Skimmer-like technology and reverse beacon network. A local Skimmer is one obeying Rule III.3.



a. Single Operator High Power Assisted (All-Band or Single-Band): Total output power must not exceed 1500 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



b. Single Operator Low Power Assisted (All-Band or Single-Band): Total output power must not exceed 100 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



c. Single Operator QRP Assisted (All-Band or Single-Band): Total output power must not exceed 5 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



B. Multi-Operator Categories (all-band operation only): Any public QSO spotting help is allowed. Any number of operators is allowed. Total output power must not exceed 1500 watts on any band at any time (see III.2).



1. Single Transmitter (MS): Only one transmitter and one band permitted during any 10-minute period (run transmitter).Exception: One- and only one-other band may be used during any 10-minute period, if-and only if-, the station worked is a new multiplier (multiplier transmitter). The run and multiplier transmitters are governed by independent ten minute rules. Ten-minute periods are defined as starting with the first logged QSO on a band (see Rule XII.2). The multiplier station cannot call CQ (solicit contacts). Logs found in violation of the 10-minute rule may be reclassified as M2. The log must indicate which transmitter (run or multiplier) made each QSO.



2. Two Transmitters (M2): A maximum of two transmitted signals at any time on two different bands. Both transmitters may work any station.A station may only be worked once per band regardless of which transmitter is used. The log must indicate which transmitter made each QSO. Each transmitter may make a maximum of 8 band changes in any clock hour.



3. Multi-Transmitter (MM): A maximum of six transmitted signals, one per band, at any one time. Six bands may be activated simultaneously.



C. Xtreme Contesting: To encourage the development of new technologies in contesting. The rules for the Xtreme category are different from the rules presented here. For the full Xtreme rules, go to and click on rules for the Xtreme category.



D. Team Contesting: A team consists of any five radio amateurs operating in any single operator category. A person may be on only one team per mode. Competing on a team will not prevent any team member from submitting his/her personal score for a radio club. A team score will be the sum of all the team members submitting scores. SSB and CW teams are totally separate. A member of an SSB team may be on a totally different CW team. A list of a team's members must be received at CQ Headquarters by the time the contest begins. E-mail to , or mail or fax the list to CQ, Attn: Team Contest, 25 Newbridge Road, Hicksville, NY 11801 U.S.A.; fax 516-681-2926. Awards will be given to the top teams on each mode.



V. NUMBER EXCHANGE: Phone: RS report plus zone (e.g., 5905). CW: RST report plus zone (e.g., 59905).



VI. MULTIPLIER: Two types of multiplier will be used.



1. A multiplier of one (1) for each different zone contacted on each band.



2. A multiplier of one (1) for each different country contacted on each band. Stations are permitted to contact their own country and zone for multiplier credit. The Worked All Zones written rules, DXCC entity list, Worked All Europe (WAE) multiplier list and IG9/IH9, and WAC boundaries are standards. Maritime mobile stations count only for a zone multiplier.



VII. POINTS:



1. Contacts between stations on different continents are worth three (3) points.



2. Contacts between stations on the same continent but different countries, one (1) point. Exception: For North American stations only, contacts between stations within the North American boundaries count two (2) points.



3. Contacts between stations in the same country are permitted for zone or country multiplier credit but have zero (0) point value.



VIII. SCORING: All stations: the final score is the result of the total QSO points multiplied by the sum of your zone and country multipliers. Example: 1000 QSO points × 100 multiplier (30 Zones + 70 Countries) = 100,000 (final score).



IX. AWARDS: First-place certificates will be awarded in each category listed under Sec.IV in every participating country and in each call area of the United States, Canada and Japan. All scores will be published. To be eligible for an award, a Single-operator station must show a minimum of 12 hours of operation. Multi-operator stations must operate a minimum of 24 hours. A single-band log is eligible for a single-band award only. If a log contains more than one band it will be judged as an all-band entry, unless specified otherwise. In countries or call areas where the returns justify, 2nd and 3rd place awards will be made. All certificates/plaques will be issued to the licensee of the station used.



X. TROPHIES AND PLAQUES: Plaques and trophies are awarded for top performance in a number of categories. They are sponsored by individuals and organizations. For a current list of plaques and sponsors, or to learn how to become a sponsor, see the CQ WW DX website www.cqww.com or the CQ website: . A station winning a World trophy will not be considered for a sub-area award; the trophy will be awarded to the runner-up in that area.



XI. CLUB COMPETITION:



1. The club must be a local group and not a national organization.



2. Participation is limited to club members living within a local geographic area defined as within a 275 km radius from the center of club area (except for DXpeditions conducted by members living within the defined club geographic area). Club contributions from DXpedition scores are a percentage of the number of club members on the DXpedition.



3. To be listed, a minimum of three logs (combined phone and CW) must be received from a club, and an officer of the club must submit a list of eligible members for each contest.



XII. LOG INSTRUCTIONS:



1. All times must be in UTC.



2. All sent and received exchanges are to be logged. In addition to the number exchange, the call sign sent by an entrant during a completed exchange, must be logged as sent by the entrant. All QSO exchanges must be logged upon QSO completion.



3. If submitting a paper log, you must indicate zone and country multipliers the FIRST TIME worked on each band. This is not required for electronic Cabrillo log submissions.



4. Electronic log submission is strongly encouraged. The Committee requires an electronic log for any possible high-scoring log.



By submitting a log to the CQ WW Contest, the entrant agrees to have the log open to the public. If possible, we would appreciate complete frequencies in the log (rule III.14 applies). E-mail Required Content: Please submit your log in the Cabrillo file format created by all major logging programs.



Be sure to put the STATION CALL SIGN in the "Subject:" line of each message. Your e-mail log will automatically be acknowledged by the server. You will also receive a personal access code from the server at a later time (usually in late spring). Electronic submission implies a signed declaration that all contest rules and regulations for amateur radio in the country of operation have been observed. Submit your CQ WW SSB log to < ssb@cqww.com > and your CQ WW CW log to < cw@cqww.com >.

Memantau ISS di lokalan Alam Damai


Selepas mesyuarat habis di Ampang aku terus ke Alam Damai sementara menunggu untuk menjemput XYL.

Aku melepak di Restoran BRJ merupakan port rakan V47 eyeball. Sambil minum aku memantau ISS ketika itu kebetulan sedang melalui Semenanjung Malaysia.

Ketika minum, kelihatan jelopi 9W2TAX muncul di sini. Tak sempat bersalaman didaratan memandangkan melihat beliau sibuk berurusan dengan rakannya.

Data APRS ketika ISS melalui Malaysia tertera callsign 9W2TFF, 9W2DIE dan 9W2CEH.

National Scouting Museum to Celebrate JOTA With ARISS Contact

The weekend of October 20-21, 2012 is Scouting's 55th Jamboree-on-


the-Air (JOTA). JOTA is a World Scouting event that bridges Scouts

all over the world via amateur radio.



The official hours are from Saturday at 00:00 hours local time to

Sunday 24:00. JOTA is not a contest but idea is to contact as many

stations as possible during the weekend. So you will hear Scouting

stations calling "CQ Jamboree," or answering the calls. All amateur

radio operators are invited to participate. An even better idea is

to invite Scouts to your station or club to take part in JOTA.



JOTA will be the main event at the National Scouting Museum. Numer-

ous amateur radio stations will be set up throughout the Museum,

allowing for both local and global communication by various modes.



There will also be many other fun and educational activities; such

as hidden transmitter hunts, electronic project assembly, solar

telescopes, demonstrations of satellite communications, and much

more throughout the day



The JOTA at the National Scouting Museum, Irving, Texas ARISS contact time

has now been confirmed. Contact will begin at 18:30:30Z via telebridge

station VK6MJ in Australia. If you cannot join us at the Museum, you are

invited to listen in to the contact via the 146.88 Dallas Amateur Radio Club

repeater, via the Echolink “AMSAT” conference bridge or on UStream via URL

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dallasjota.



Lets light up the birds this JOTA weekend with Scout to Scout contacts.

Find a club or scouting organization near you that is running a JOTA station

and ask them if you can participate. Many of them have never experienced a

satellite radio contact and you will hook ‘em. For a list of BSA registered

JOTA stations, please check out the growing list at

http://www.scouting.org/jota/registered_stations.aspx and find one in your

area. You can download the full spreadsheet there as well which has contact

information for the local organizer who have registered their events.

Outside the US contact your local Scouting agency and find out how you can

participate.



JOTA is a great way to get out of the ham shack and demonstrate the thrill

of Amateur Radio Satellites to an eager audience.

Beliau telah berlepas ke ISS pada 14 Julai 2012 daripada Baikonur Cosmodrome di Kazakhstan bersama-sama Komander Soyuz Rusia, Yuri Malenchenko dan Jurutera Penerbangan, Akihiko Hoshide daripada Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency sehingga bulan November 2012 nanti.

Sebelum menyertai NASA, Williams merupakan seorang juruterbang dan kemudiannya menjadi juruterbang percubaan pesawat dan telah melakukan 3,000 jam penerbangan dengan lebih 30 jenis pesawat.

William juga telah menerima beberapa anugerah dan pengiktirafan tinggi negaranya. Antaranya adalah anugerah Pingat Kepujian Tentera Laut sebanyak dua kali, Pingat Pencapaian Tentera Laut dan Kor Marin, Pingat Perkhidmatan Kemanusiaan, Pingat "For Merit in Space Exploration" (Russia 2011) bagi untuk sumbangan cemerlang kepada pembangunan kerjasama antarabangsa dalam penerbangan angkasa yang dikendalikan dan Anugerah tertinggi India Padam Bhushan pada tahun 2007.

Sepanjang berada di ISS, Williams dan krewnya dijangka akan melakukan 30 misi saintifik.
16 orang pelajar sekolah ini telah dipilih daripada SK Tun Dr Ismail (1) dan SMK Tun Sr Ismail Kuala Lumpur. Program sebentar tadi juga turut dimeriahkan dengan kehadirian Timbalan Ketua Pengarah Agensi Angkasa Negara, YBhg Dr Nordin Ahmad dan Pengarah Planetarium Negara, YBrs Puan Azreena Ahmad.

Portable Jalan Tiga Bandar Baru Bangi


Sempena Peperiksaan Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) yang berlangsung minggu ini dan minggu hadapan aku akan berportable di Jalan Tiga, Bandar Baru Bangi.

Sebagai pengawas, aku akan menjalankan tugasan di sebuah sekolah di sini. Bermula semalam hingga minggu hadapan tugasan ini akan dijalankan secara penuh tanggungjawab.

Ketika di sini aku telah terlihat 2 jelopi yang bercallsign iaitu 9W2NMT dan 9W2BIA. Aku hanya perasan jelopi 9W2NMT mungkin dibawa oleh XYL beliau yang bertugas sebagai guru. Tetapi jelopi 9W2BIA masih belum lagi kelihatan tuan punya.

Jika hendak ke sini dari Tol Bangi anda akan lihat antena Yagi di simpang masuk ke sekolah ini. Tower yang didirikan dibelakang rumah sudah pasti rakan ham yang memilikinya. Aku tak berkesempatan nak meninjau siapakah gerangan yang empunya base stesen itu?

Weather Forecasting Tools - The radiosonde









This Monday, the weather is expected to deliver gusty winds to Roswell, NM thanks to a cold front. The wind for the launch of the 30 mcf balloon must be 2 mph or less.


Meteorologist Don Day delivered the news of a 24 hour delay to Felix Baumgartner and the entire launch crew. Instead of flying Monday as scheduled, our attempt to reach 120,000 feet will probably take place Tuesday.

Forecast details:

A strong cold front with sharply colder temperatures, low clouds and some drizzle will be moving through eastern New Mexico over the weekend. While the weather will greatly improve on Monday with clearing skies and warmer temperatures, wind speeds are expected to be above acceptable levels for a safe launch on Monday morning. Wind speeds are forecast to be between (8 - 16 km/h) 5 - 10 mph with winds near the balloon top at (16 - 24 km/h) 10 to 15 mph, as Don Day explains. Baumgartner will be using the largest manned balloon in history: 550 feet/ 168 meters high at the start with a volume of 30 million cubic feet/ 850.000 cubic meters!

“The good news is that we usually have a day or two after this type of cold front moves through where the weather can be favorable for a balloon launch“, Don Day says.

A new addition to forecasting for Roswell launch site - The Radiosonde:


•The small radiosonde (about 1/2 pound) dangles under the balloon (looks like an oversized birthday balloon). Don Day says using local radiosonde data is better than using the sounding from El Paso or Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our own radiosonde will offer very specific data to Roswell since it will be released from the same launch location for Felix.

.•The radiosonde takes measurements of air temperature, dew point, altitude, wind speed/direction, and atmospheric pressure.

.•The goal is to examine the profile of the atmosphere all the way to 130,000 feet.

.•The temperature profile in the stratosphere is not expected to change much between now and launch time, which makes forecasting Felix’s landing zone even better.

.The best indicator we have that Felix will break the speed of sound is from radiosonde data. It profiles the atmosphere, most importantly the temperature which is what NAA official observer, Brian Utley, wants to examine. Speed of sound is determined by temperature. The warmer it is, the faster Felix would have to go to break the speed of sound. Basically, the colder the better to ensure a supersonic fall. Actual telemetry can be compared to the radiosonde data in mission control to identify when Felix breaks the speed of sound too.

Brian says, “The atmosphere is a living element….we want to know its status. You might say we’re taking the pulse of the atmosphere just before we launch the balloon.”

Pengajaran kepada penganjur MTB Jamboree


Berita kematian peserta UPM MTB FETE 2012 yang berlangsung pada hari ahad lalu memang mengejutkan banyak pihak. Laporan Harian Metro semalam memetik kepada rakan arwah mengatakan beliau telah sakit dada selepas mengharungi lebih 18km. Kawasan yang dilalui merupakan kawasan bukit-bukau memberi cabaran yang sangat hebat kepada semua peserta.


Sebagai pemerhati pada hari itu aku mendapati banyak kekangan dan kekurangan terhadap penganjuran kali ini. Banyak cemuhan dan kemarahan dalam kalangan peserta akibat kealpaan penganjur yang dikatakan lebih kepada mengejar keuntungan. Tetapi kita tidak tahu pula apakah masalah yang mereka hadapi sehingga menimbul ketidakpuasan hati dikalangan peserta.


Cakap-cakap diinternet menjadi medan peserta menunjukkan ketidakpuasan hati apa yang mereka telah lalui sepanjang lebih 45km perlumbaan. Peserta mengatakan keadaan laluan amat tidak sesuai sekali. Pemilihan trek laluan yang dibuat adakah telah diuji terlebih dahulu kesesuaian digunakan perlumbaan yang dihadiri lebih dari seribu orang?  Kapasiti yang banyak ini bolehkah ditampung dan adakah sangat sesuai?


Ada laporan mengatakan trek itu hanya sesuai untuk aktiviti trekking sahaja. Kasihan kepada peserta kerana asyik menolak daripada mengayuh basikal. Semasa aku hendak pulang ke rumah melalui SKVE aku melihat peserta menolak basikal ditepi longkang sebelah highway itu. Memang trek yang dibuat tidak sesuai untuk berkayuh. Kemudian menolak masuk ke dalam semak dan keluar semula dari semak. Alangkah elok guna sahaja laluan kecemasan  SKVE sahaja, tetapi memanglah sangat merbahaya kepada pengguna lain. Pemandu mesti terfikir mengapa rider ini menolak basikal sahaja. Nasib baik tidak berenang bersama ikan laga dalam longkang itu.

Aku lihat ketika itu, ramai peserta mendapat rawatan kepada para petugas tepi highway itu terutama kaki mengalami kekejangan. Hanya sapu menggunakan ais dapat memulihkan semula otot-otot yang tegang itu.

Sebelum itu, aku memerhati di pintu 2 Maeps berdekatan pintu gerbang. Kayuhan berjalan lancar kerana menggunakan jalan raya selepas berhempas-pulas dalam hutan. Sepatutnya, penganjur boleh menyediakan check point atau tempat kesegaran di situ. Aku lihat hanya kakak berbaju merah menunjukkan arah ke bawah untuk perlumbaan seterusnya.

Selepas keluar dari hutan itu, peserta memerlukan air yang banyak bagi menggantikan cecair badan yang banyak hilang. Sepatutnya penganjur perlu menyediakan air minuman di situ. Aku menanyakan jarak yang telah dilalui oleh salah seorang peserta ketika itu. Beliau telah mengatakan bahawa perjalanan yang dilalui adalah lebih 20km. 


Kakak yang berbaju merah itu, sendiri aku lihat tidak dibekalkan air minuman dan baju rasmi sebagai urusetia. Menurut beliau adalah kakitangan MARDI yang bertugas pada hari ahad yang kebiasaanya berehat di rumah. Urusetia atau crew yang lain aku lihat sebelum itu memakai t-shirt putih. Aku pula memakai t-shirt peserta bewarna hijau menunjukkan komitmen untk memberi semangat kepada peserta. 

Pegawai Keselamatan MARDI pula, menjaga simpang dan lalulintas ketika itu. Mereka sendiri mempunyai kemudahan radio perhubungan yang boleh digunakan oleh penganjur jika berlaku saat-saat kecemasan. Ketika aku di situ, aku monotor di V38 kedengaran audio memanggil check-point 4. Akupun tak tahu di mana check-point 4 itu. Aku cuba response tetapi tiada balasan.

Penganjur sebenarnya menggunakan kemudahan radio dua hala. Semasa aku menunggu di simpang jalan tanah merah sebelum mendaki bukit yang ramai-ramai sangkut itu. Aku telah ditegur oleh urusetia yang menanyakan check-point 2 yang menggunakan handy. Aku menafikan bahawa tempat yang aku tunggu itu check-point 2 memandangkan dia melihat aku memegang handy juga. Tetapi malangnya bila aku bertanya frekuensi yang digunakan dia tidak memberi jawapan dan berlalu pergi. Kalau rakan ham pasti ia akan memberi kerjasama yang erat.


Bakal penganjur yang lain bolehlah menggunakan khidmat radio amatur bagi tujuan perhubungan memandang jarak sesuatu pertandingan adalah amat jauh. Banyak kelab dan persatuan boleh dihubungi bagi mendapat khidmat nasihat dan bantuan komunikasi. Pemegang lesen radio amatur sangat terlatih dan berkemahiran tinggi bagi kemudahan komunikasi terutama ditempat yang jauh dengankemudahan perhubungan telefon.

Para peserta juga haruslah bersedia dari segi fizikal dan mental sebelum menyertai sesuatu pertandingan. Peralatan basikal mestilah dalam keadaan sangat baik bagi mengelakkan sebarang kemalangan. Pemeriksaan tahap kesihatan amat penting bagi mengesahkan kita boleh bertanding.

Penganjur pula harus menydiakan papan tanda atau tali-tali keselamatan bagi kawasan yang sangat merbahaya seperti digaung, dilereng-lereng bukit atau dilurah-lurah. Bila adanya amaran seperti itu, para peserta akan lebih berhati-hati ketika melalui kawasan itu. Bukannya menyediakan laluan untuk hiking kepada peserta berbasikal memanglah tidak sesuai sama sekali. Risiko seperti ini sememangnya boleh dielakkan jika langkah-langkah keselamatan telah diambil kira. Orang yang paling bertanggungjawab ialah orang yang membuat laluan trek itu. Dia semestinya tahu samada trek yang dibuat itu adalah sesuai untuk acara berbasikal merentas desa. Jika hendak downhill pasti kaki-kaki downhill akan menyertainya dengan basikal yang sesuai untuk acara itu.

Apapun perkara yang berlalu haruslah diambil pengajaran oleh semua pihak agar tidak berulang lagi.
