Global Simulated Emergency Test – November 2011

Saturday November 12th 2011 11.00 - 15.00 Local Time
IARU Region 1 invites the HQ-Stations of all IARU member societies and stations of Emergency Communications Groups to participate in a Global Simulated Emergency Test on Saturday November 12th, 2011 11.00 – 15.00 Local Time. The operation will take place on and near the emergency Centre-of-Activity (CoA) frequencies on 80, 40, 20, 17 and 15 metres (+-QRM ). This event is different to earlier ones as we will not be activating all stations around the globe at the same time, instead the event will call for stations to be active at their local time. This will mean that some stations will have to wait for HQ stations to come on air to pass their messages but will reduce the inter-region interference that may occur.

The objectives of the test are;

1. increase the common interest in emergency communications.

2. test how usable the CoA frequencies are across ITU regions.

3. create practices for international emergency communication and

4. practice the relaying of messages using all modes.

So, please remember that this is not a contest, it is an emergency communications exercise to develop the skills we will need to provide an international emergency network.

Messages may be passed on voice (SSB), Data or CW modes as detailed below.

Voice mode

Each IARU Region will have a HQ station operating on voice as follows:

Region 1 – TBA

Region 2 – YV5RNE

Region 3 – TBA

HQ stations will be QRV at 11.00-15.00 local time in their QTH on all CoA frequencies appropriate to their region +- QRM as shown below.

Region 1 Region 2 Region 3

3760 3750 or 3895 3600

7060 or 7110 7060, 7240 or 7290 7110

14300 14300 14300

18160 18160 18160

21360 21360 21360

Stations intending to participate are requested to register through their IARU Regional/National Emergency Communications Co-Ordinators as follows;

Region 1 - http://bit.ly/htGHy

Region 2 - http://www.iaru-r2.org/emergencies/

Region 3 - http://www.iaru-r3.org/dcom/r3dcom-com.htm

If your country does not have a National Co-Ordinator then please contact the regional co-ordinator via the details on the websites.

A list of participating stations is available at http://bit.ly/tRo96j. Participating stations should call 'CQ GLOBALSET' giving their callsign and organisation ( ARES,RAYNET, NETMAR etc. ).

Message Format

Each participating station will send messages to their Regional HQ station formatted using the IARU HF International Emergency Operating Procedure which can be seen at http://bit.ly/2rrbwW That page also has the message forms to be used for the exercise.

Stations should relay messages received towards the Regional HQ station.

To comply with licence regulations, all messages should be addressed to Greg Mossop, G0DUB and should come from a licenced radio amateur.

Messages should be less than 25 words and must not include anything which would be considered as a 'real emergency' message by a listener.

For example;

* Weather report at the station location

* Number of operators available

* Interesting fact about the station

would all be acceptable messages. An example message would be;

1 Routine ZS6BUU 6 Johannesburg 1100 12 NOV

To Greg Mossop G0DUB

Johannesburg weather 15 Degrees and sunny

From Francois Botha ZS6BUU

There is no limit on the number of messages to be sent but each one must have a unique message number.

Regional HQ stations will not be sending messages, only receiving them. To avoid QRMing the HQ stations, please move to frequencies near the CoA in steps of 5KHz for contacts with others.

To create a more realistic situation, please limit your transmitting power during the exercise to 100 Watts. We are especially interested in stations operating mobile/portable and/or on emergency power.

Data modes

Data stations must send the same format as used for voice messages. There will not be any HQ stations for data modes in all regions, data stations should use the frequencies defined for their preferred mode in national bandplans unless otherwise shown. This makes the use of 'CQ GLOBALSET' and registering your intended participation particularly important.

'Structured' modes such as Winlink, ALE, PSKmail should send their messages directly to g0dub@winlink.orgThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , other data modes should attempt to relay the messages through two other stations before sending them to globalset-data@raynet-hf.netThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for analysis. Where possible, email responses will be sent as the messages are received.

CW Mode

CW is included in this SET to increase the possibility of stations making contacts in difficult conditions and should be used when SSB or data contacts are proving impossible. There will not be any HQ stations for CW unless otherwise shown, CW stations should operate near the CoA frequencies when SSB traffic cannot be heard.

CW stations must send the same format as used for voice messages and not exceed 15wpm. If necessary CW messages can be relayed through two other stations before sending them to globalset-cw@raynet-hf.netThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for analysis.


A log sheet for messages passed is provided at http://bit.ly/8ZyOTG so that analysis of the exercise will be easier. Stations are only required to submit logs of the messages relayed, not the messages themselves.

It is acknowledged that there have been significant delays in the production of reports from earlier events. However please send your logs with comments, pictures and suggestions for future exercises to; globalset08@raynet-hf.netThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it as soon as possible after the SET so that information can be gathered for a report of the event as soon as the backlog has been cleared.

Thanks for your support of emergency communications.

DXpedition to Kiritimati (Christmas Island)

DXCC Entity: East Kiribati (T32)

This is the official site for the 2011 Amateur Radio DXpedition to Kiritimati (Christmas Island) in the Northern Line Islands, a part of the Republic of Kiribati. The DXpedition is being organised by the Five Star DXers Association (FSDXA) and will operate using the call sign T32C between 28 September and 26 October.

Why Kiritimati? Club Log shows that East Kiribati, where Kiritimati is located, is the 36th most wanted DXCC entity by European operators and 61st most wanted worldwide. It is even more sought after on the LF bands.

The team will arrive on the island on the afternoon of Wednesday 28th September 2011 and depart on the morning of Wednesday 26th October 2011. Allowing for set up and take down of the stations, operations should extend over four full weekends.

During our time on the island we want:

To operate to the highest standards - we support the DX Code of Conduct

To make contact with 40,000 different stations (uniques)

To give every DXer, wherever based, a chance to contact T32

To exploit all openings to Europe

To contact between 1,000 and 2,000 different stations in the UK

To exceed 150,000 QSOs

To win back some of the world records previously held by FSDXA

To place an emphasis on the LF bands

To have up to 15 stations on the air simultaneously

And, oh yes - to have some fun!

We will be taking over the Captain Cook Hotel with its north facing beach which will give great over-sea take off for the short paths to Europe, North America and Japan. The take off in other directions is also good as the highest point on the Island (Joe's Hill) is only 13 meters (43ft) high, and the centre of the island is mainly sea water lagoon. The DXpedition will make heavy use of vertical antennas to take advantage of the sea water.


CQ WW DX SSB Contest 2011

CQ WW DX Contest Rules 2011

SSB: October 29 - 30 CW: November 26 - 27

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

III.TYPE OF COMPETITION (choose only one)

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. All high power categories must not exceed 1500 watts total output power on any band at any time.

3. All transmitters and receivers used 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 a band, either a software or 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.

A. All Single Operator categories (1A-2C below): 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.

1A. Single Operator High Power (All-Band or Single-Band): QSO alerting assistance of any kind is not allowed. Total output power must not exceed 1500 watts on any band at any time.

1B. Single Operator Low Power (All-Band or Single-Band): QSO alerting assistance of any kind is not allowed. Total output power must not exceed 100 watts on any band at any time.

1C. Single Operator QRP (All-Band or Single-Band): QSO alerting assistance of any kind is not allowed. Total output power must not exceed 5 watts on any band at any time.

2. All Assisted Categories

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.

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

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

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

B. Multi-Operator (all-band operation only):

For all multi-operator categories: when two or more transmitters are present on a band, either a software or 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 is not allowed; any public QSO spotting help is allowed. Any number of operators is allowed.

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. The multiplier station cannot call CQ. Logs found in violation of the 10-minute rule may be reclassified as M2. If electronic logging is used (Cabrillo), for each QSO, the run transmitter or multiplier transmitter must be indicated in the log.

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. Each of the two transmitters used must keep a separate chronological log for the entire contest period, or if electronic logging is used, the electronic log submittal (Cabrillo) 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): No limit to the number of transmitters or operators. 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.

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

V. 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.


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.

VII. 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).

VIII. AWARDS: First-place certificates will be awarded in each category listed under Sec.III in every participating country and in each call area of the United States, Canada, European Russia, Spain 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 sections 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.

IX. 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 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.


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 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.


1. All times must be in UTC.

2. All sent and received exchanges are to be logged.

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: We want your electronic log. 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. 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 and your CQ WW CW log to .

5. Paper log submission: Use a separate log sheet for each band.

Each paper log entry MUST be accompanied by a summary sheet showing all scoring information, category of competition, and contestant's name and address in BLOCK LETTERS. Sample log and summary sheets and zone maps are available from CQ. A large, self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage or IRCs must accompany your request. If official forms are not available, make up your own, 80 contacts to the page on 8 1/2" × 11" paper or European A4. All paper log entrants are required to submit cross-check sheets (an alphabetical list of calls worked) for each band on which 200 or more QSOs were made.

6. Bad QSO: The bad QSO is removed and a penalty of three more equivalent QSOs is applied to the points only.

7. QRP and Low Power stations must indicate their category on their summary sheets and state the actual maximum power output used in the comment section of their Cabrillo submission.


Violation of the rules of the contest makes the entrant subject to either a red or yellow card or a warning letter at the discretion of the CQ WW CC.

A. YELLOW card: One Yellow card, entrant not eligible for any award in the entered contest. An entrant or operator issued a yellow card will be removed from the results. Entrants receiving a yellow card will be listed at the end of the published results. Two Yellow cards: see One Red Card.

B. RED card:One Red card, entrant not eligible for an award in the entered contest. Entrants receiving a red card will be listed at the end of the published results. An entrant or operator receiving a red card will be ineligible for any CQ-sponsored contest award for a period of one year beginning with the publication of the violation in CQ magazine. Two Red cards: An entry or operator receiving two red cards within five consecutive CQ WW DX contests will be ineligible for any CQ-sponsored contest award for a period of two years beginning the month of publication of the second violation in CQ magazine. If the entrant is in a multi-operator category, all listed operators are so affected.

Further CQ WW CC actions:

1. The entrant agrees that the CQ WW CC reserves the right to reject any entry for non-compliance with the rules.

2. Unsportsmanlike conduct can be grounds for either a red or yellow card at the discretion of the CQ WW CC. Unsportsmanlike conduct includes but is not limited to violation of the CQ WW rules, ANY use by an entrant of any non-amateur means during the contest including, but not limited to, telephones, Internet, instant messaging, chat rooms, VoIP, or the use of any DX cluster/reflector to SOLICIT, ARRANGE, or CONFIRM any contacts during the contest. Unsportsmanlike conduct also includes out of band transmissions by the entrant.

3. Taking credit for excessive unverifiable QSOs or unverifiable multipliers may result in a yellow or red card at the discretion of the CQ WW CC.

4. An entrant is free to withdraw his/her submitted log for any reason prior to receiving an official letter from the CQ WW CC. The log will then be handled per the entrant's request. If after receiving an official letter from the CQ WW CC, an entrant chooses to withdraw their log, the entrant's call will be listed at end of the results showing their log as having been withdrawn.

5. By submitting a CQ WW DX Contest log, an entrant agrees that the issuing of red cards, yellow cards, and other decisions of the CQ WW CC are official and final.

6. A card penalty given to an entrant will be honored by all CQ sponsored contests, the EUHFC, the SCC RTTY Championship and the JIDXC.

7. Actions of the CQ WW CC will be announced.


1. All entries must be sent NO LATER than November 21, 2011 for the SSB section and December 21, 2011 for the CW section.

2. An extension of up to one month may be given if requested by e-mail (questions@cqww.com). The granted extension must be confirmed by the Contest Director, must state a legitimate reason, and the request must be received before the log mailing deadline. Logs postmarked after the extension deadline may be listed in the results but will be declared ineligible for an award. All paper logs should be sent to Paper Logs, Box 481, New Carlisle, OH 45344, USA. Please mark SSB or CW on the envelope.

Di atas adalah senarai DXCC yang aku telah berjaya QSO di Hamsphere. Walaupun non- RF melalui teknologi kini kita masih boleh QSO bersama rakan-rakan di mana jua di muka bumi ini. Ini adalah langkah permulaan aku untuk bekerja di HF. Banyak juga pengalaman dan pengetahuan yang diperolehi semasa bekerja melalui Hamsphere ini. Apabila propagasi yang kurang menarik ramai rakan menggunakan medium ini untuk QSO. Mereka berpendapat melalui internet ini segala trafik dapat disampaikan. Ada juga rakan memberi trafik yang terkini tentang propagasi yang baik sedang berlaku membolehkan mereka QRV dijalur untuk menunggu rakan-rakan dari sesuatu negara. Contohnya propagasi yang membuka  berlaku dari Jepun ke negara-negara selatan hingga ke VK. Rakan ham yang menggunakan software ini sangat teruja kerana mereka boleh QSO bersama rakan lain dari pelbagai negara. Mereka sangat berterima kasih kepada yang mencipta software ini membolehkan berhubung di mana-mana jua tempat tanpa mengharapkan lagi propagasi. Tetapi melalui internet ini, connection perlulah dalam keadaan yang baik seperti fungsi RF apabila bekerja di HF. Jika connection tidak baik terima audio juga kurang baik dan kadangkala tidak dapat difahami segala maklumat yang hendak disampaikan.
Manakala rakan SWL juga dapat QSO menggunakan callsign HS seperti Citizen Band. Seronok dapat bertukar maklumat dan pengalaman terutama tentang radio dan negara masing-masing. Ada juga negara yang mempunyai peraturan tertentu bagi mengeluarkan lesen seperti perlu lulus CW. Jadi mereka ini sukar untuk mendapatkan callsign kerana perlu mempelajari CW terlebih dahulu.
Apapun software ini menyambung minat kita terhadap radio amatur walaupun tidak menggunakan gelombang radio. Fungsinya tetap sama iaitu menghubungkan rakan antara satu sama lain di mana-mana berada.Cuma pengetahuan teknikal seperti penggunaan antena, kabel, rig tiada cuma ada software dan peralatan komputer sahaja. Tetapi pengetahuan teknikal dapat dikongsi dan bertukar-tukar maklumat oleh setiap rakan. Terima kasih kepada rakan-rakan yang telah QSO bersama. Setakat ini dapat QSO rakan di Sabah manakala rakan SWL dari Sarawak. Harap lepas ini dapat contact dengan rakan ham di Sarawak pula.

Monitor di Bukit Mahkota, Bangi

Sebelum masuk waktu asar petang tadi sempat juga aku monitor menggunakan handy dari Bukit Mahkota, Bangi. QTH seksyen 6 Bukit Mahkota, Bangi dapat mendengar audio rakan QSO di V59. Frequensi 146.5375 ketika aku scan berhenti di sini. Aku mendengar audio abg udi 9W2NBF QTH Bandar Tun Razak dan tok uban 9W2OOA Wangsa Maju. Terima abg udi paling menarik 5/9 dan tok uban 3/8. Kalau dari base lama aku memang tok uban punya audio crystal clear memandangkan antena dari seberang. Manakala 9W2BIZ dan 9W2 EDU tidak dapat dicopy audio kedua rakan.
Selepas itu mereka QSY ke V62 aku monitor lagi. Kali ini ramai rakan lain yang masuk bergabung. Masih kedua rakan dapat dicopy audio adalah abg udi dan tok uban sahaja.Rakan lain seperti 9W2EDU abg Ikmal QTH di UM, 9W2XWX dan 9W2PJN tidak dapat dicopy audio mereka.

9WTRO memancar ke 9M4RBC

Malam tadi aku monitor di 9M4RBC jam 12.25 malam lebih kurang ketika abg udi 9W2NBF QSO bersama rakan abg taib 9W2TBD. Kedengaran rakan dari jauh mencapai pengulang 9M4RBC. Rakan tersebut adalah Mohd Radzi b. Osman QTH Nibong Tebal, Pulau Pinang. Terima audio anda 3/8 terlompat-lompat tetapi masih dapat dicopy rapi. Semalam cuaca di kawasan tengah mendung dan setengah-setengah tempat hujan. Mungkin malam tadi propagasi sangat baik membolehkan beliau berjaya mencapai pengulang. Tidak QSL berapa kuasa pancaran yang digunakan. Apapun tahniah diucapkan kerana mampu bekerja ke kawasan tengah dari utara. jumpa dan jumpa lagi ada kesempatan bolehlah kita QSO suatu hari nanti.

Monitor Di Kota Bharu

Hari sabtu hingga isnin yang lalu aku ke pantai timur. Pada 1 Oktober aku bersama xyl bertolak ke Kota Bharu dari Bangi bermula jam 9 pagi. Perjalanan lancar melalui Karak highway dan terus melalui Bentong, Raub dan Kuala Lipis. Berhenti makan tengahari di Merapoh sebelum meneruskan perjalanan melalui Gua Musang, Kuala Krai dan tiba di Kota Bharu jam 4 petang. Sepanjang perjalanan sempat juga monitor dan juga melihat antena banyak kelihatan di tepi-tepi jalan. Ini menggambarkan rakan ham ramai di negeri ini.
Aku menginap sebuah hotel di Kota Bharu berhadapan dengan sungai Kelantan. Kedudukan ditingkat 5 membolehkan aku monitor dengan baik menggunakan handy. Berdasarkan antena yang banyak kelihatan di mana-mana sahaja maka tidak hairanlah bahawa dijaluran juga kelihatan sangat sibuk rakan QSO antara satu sama lain. Bukan rakan kita sahaja, audio dari negara jiran juga dapat dicopy baik tetapi tidak fahamlah apa yang mereka bualkan.
Pada pemerhatian aku frekuensi 147.650MHz amat jelas diterima. Kedengaran audio 9W2WIE, 9W2ZWI, 9W2HKT, 9W2CNC, 9W2IMP dan 9W2KEY. Manakala di frekuensi 146.975MHz kedengaran audio 9W2AYK, 9W2ZNM dan 9W2VDO. Bagi frekuensi yang dapat dicopy dari base aku adalah 147.175MHz dan 147.8625MHz. Frekuensi yang lain dapat kedengaran rakan adalah 146.850MHz, 146.9375MHz dan 144.675MHz.
Keesokannya 2 Oktober aku monitor lagi di frekuensi 147.650MHz. Kedengaran 9W2DNH, 9W2SWD, 9W2ALI, 9W2ZWI, 9W2DRN, 9W2DAY, 9W2TXT dan istemewanya rakan jiran HS9KKX di Narathiwat. Melalui radio ini boleh mengeratkan hubungan antarabangsa iaitu persaudaraan melalui udara.
Selepas itu, perjalanan diteruskan ke Kuala Terengganu singgah ke kedai Payang kerana XYL ingin membeli kain batik yang cantik. Lupa nak bawa keluar handy kalau tidak boleh monitor. Selepas membeli-belah perjalanan diteruskan ke Kemaman. Aku menginap di bandar Chukai sebelum meneruskan perjalanan pulang esok. Monitor di 147.400MHz kedengaran 9W2CRI dan 9W2FKR.
Hari terakhir 3 Oktober aku makan tengahari di Chukai sambil monitor di 146.100MHz tak silap aku jalur ini kedengaran 9M2MUS dan 9W2TNT QSO di Kuantan.
