9M's Recommendations

This is the form for 9M recommendations..i believe all of u have experienced into it..find 9M's for signatory..some of people think, it's not so important when signed at this letter..they thinking, this thing cannot make loan or cannot make money etc..but for me, it's talk about responsibilities..once your signature was there, it's really wanted u to make sense in whatever that person was done..if that person doing wrong, u have to correct him..to make him know what he was done..that why when signed, u have to see the person to make u know whose belong that callsign later..with this, it's easy for u to find him when that person doing something not right..so, please be responsibilities in what ever u do..keep long life & harmony for this hobby..
p/s : hams..not place to make money, it's just hobby..please utilize it like hobby..

Today i'm settled my AA for a new one..Thanks to Officer at MCMC Menara Ansar, JB. who person was made my AA..the processing take about 15minute..so, i just wait at there..At the 1st time it was impressing me but unfortunately, when i look at the freq for 40m, it's still remain 7.000 - 7.100Mhz..i thought it was change up to 7.200Mhz as per mentioned at website..personally, this new AA was very nice & easy to bring/carry anywhere because at the right-down there got portion to be cut, put your photo & laminate it just like a driving license card/certificate..my advise, go to your nearest MCMC & change to this new one much better..
p/s : pls bring your original AA & 'wang pos' RM10/-

Hams Shack - Money vs Effort

hi dear friends,
Shack are pride to the all hams in the world..frankly to say, all hams have style/conditions for thier own shack..it's depend on everybody own mood or taste..whose have a lot of money for sure the shack is nice like a 'big gun'..but how about not effort one..i really sure, when people become hams..all those things are no more be a strength..they will think all can be homebrew..this are really hams spirit..more saticfactions when all done from thier own handmade..this is a hobby too..
For me, what ever it is..with the name of 'Amateur Radio'..please be a courtesy hams member..wish all of u very good luck in whatever u do, have a nice day & really appreciate to work with me at the bands..

Mobile Station

FT 857D

Homebrew HF Mobile Antenna Helix type (20m Band)

Due on the very good propagation this lately..i manage to set up my station into my car..FT857D will move out from base to mobile..the antenna will be use is 20m monoband Omni direction Helix type (homebrew)..credit to DAL which a person give effort to make this antenna for me..all info about pre-performance the antenna are shown at his blog..the rest antenna for 10m & 40m still under testing to get the resonants..this antenna need a very good grounding because of the radial/radius wave patterns..so, may be during the pre-testing & the actual when i mount this antenna at my car, all the setting will be vary but not too much (i hope so)..if i can't get the proper grounding at my car then the others way is use Capasitor to get back the resonant..
The worse thing is i miss place my antenna bracket, don't know where i put it before or already give to people..hehe..so, need to wait a few days, to buy that bracket due on the holiday (Chinese New Year)..so, i hope after i get the bracket, all the installation will be smooth..i will update the performance soon after all the installations done..
see u down the long from my mobile station soon..

Roger - Slang

Slang, usually used in radio transmissions such as military/hams communications, meaning "I understand" or "I hear you." Synonymous with "I copy that." Often just "Roger" ..Affirmative in nature, "yes", "i acknowledge what you are saying", "i heard you", "i agree", "yes this is true", "you are right"..In this case is alright but what the problem here is placement this slang while conversation (QSO)..i sincerely heard hams member say "Romeo" stand for "R" equal to "Roger"..this thing really make me confius..i think not me but to other members also..try to think back what is the necessary words while QSO..among of us, for sure know what the SOP for QSO..then really hope after this nobody make simply to broke up protocol/SOP on amateur radio standard QSO..

73 Best regards
88 Love and kisses
these are most number code are use during conversations..people will use it in all modes..what the most important here are how to pronounce it..example, it is 73 (seventy three) or 7 3 (seven three) ??
nowadays, u still can hear on the air while conversations, one of the hams sign-off, people still say 73 (seventy three), this is not correct..suppose to be say 7 3 (seven three)..it's was same cases with RST (Readibily, Signal Strength & Tone)..in SSB mode, only RS will be use..if the audio & signal copy very good..the 59 is given..but how to say 59?? it is 59 (fifty nine) or 5 9 (five nine) or 5 by 9 or 5 & 9..??
all above there can be use except 59 (fifty nine)..should be not to say in one word..say in a separate words..that can be easy & frankly speaking..

Morse code abbreviations

This is the commonly used Morse code abbreviations.. Abbreviations different from prosigns in that they observe normal interletter spacing, that is, they are not "run together" the way prosigns are.. but, abbreviations must "run together" which is sound must continue from first to the next word.. if the sound heard seperate, there is two (2) or more word actually.. thats mean people recieved in uncorrect word or others interpretation..so, be careful & practice always will make it perfect..

PTT or Mic

PTT, stand for Push-to-Talk or others people say Press-to-Transmit..it's happen in conversion half-duplex communications..including two-way radio & using a momentary button to switch from recieve mode to transmit mode (rx to tx)..in other cases, still got people say PTT rather than mic..the correct word is mic not PTT, it's cause PTT is a part of mic..if people say PTT, that mean only PTT have but not mic there..but the thing that you hold is mic not PTT..PTT only you push when you want talk..so, i really hope after this people will realise it..

QRP or high power levels??

QRP = Low power levels

What motivates the low-power (QRP) amateur operator? This question does not have a simple answer. A vast number of QRPers are "turned on" by the relative simplicity of most home-made QRP equipment. Simple gear is not only easy to construct and operate, but it is fairly inexpensive to build. This has a special appeal to those who lack technical backgrounds and have yet to develop their skills. Furthermore, many of published QRP circuits may be assembled on a PC (printed circuit) board that is available by mail from one or more PC-board vendors. The parts-placement guide for a given project is generally published in the related article. Guesswork is thus eliminated for the most part.
Other amateurs have the ability to design their own circuits. QRP equipment offers a short-term exercise in the workshop because many of the projects are simple. This enables an experimenter to try new circuits in an evening or within a couple of days. He can try new ideas and obtain fast results. He may continue to work with his new circuit until it is perfected at which time a final model can be built, housed in a cabinet and used in his station.
Other QRPers are captured by the nostalgia that takes them back to the early days of Amateur Radio, when hams, through necessity, used only a few watts of RF power for communicating. In other words, they had to do things the hard way. Each successful QSO was logged as an achievement! Pride accompanied home-made gear and the ability to be heard at great distances. So, go for low power levels, save money & energy as well. Think green!!
"All stations shall only use the minimum power required for effective communications"
