EMCOMM EXERCISE IN MALAYSIA

EMCOMM EXERCISE IN MALAYSIA

The recent 'battery only' power training exercise in Malaysia, aimed at passing messages and testing day-time propagation paths, involved around 30 radio amateurs who were assisted by five shortwave listeners.

IARU Region 3 Disaster Communications Committee's Johnny Tan 9M8DB noted that some drove 800km from Kuching to Miri for the exercise that tested paths between west to east Malaysia, and most certainly prepared everyone involved for disaster communications.

The emcomm message handling exercise on voice was a success. Due to some missing connectors lost in transportation the use of PSK31 had to be postponed to a later date.
