The Malaysian Simulated Emergency Test (MySET) – 2019

Beginning at 9 pm on Saturday, November 09th 2019, Malaysian radio amateurs are invited to participate in a nationwide exercise called The Malaysia Simulated Emergency Test (MySET).

The primary goal of this exercise may be used to shape amateur radio communications policy in the future. It is important to assess our ability to provide communications to ensure that amateur radio operators are prepared to respond effectively when a disaster disrupts or overloads normal means of communication.

The specific objective for this communications exercise is to develop a Simulated Incident Relay Map for all states. This relay map would be important so that during disaster, information can be sent to its destination efficiently.

Contact for more information about the Test.

2019 IARU HF World Championship Contest

Dear Members,

The 2019 IARU HF World Championship Contest takes place the second full weekend of July, beginning 1200 UTC Saturday and ending 1200 UTC Sunday (13-14 July 2019). Both Single and Multi operator stations may operate the entire 24-hour period.

All licensed amateurs worldwide are eligible to participate in this contest. The objective of this contest is to contact as many other amateurs as possible, especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world using the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands. Multipliers are the total number of ITU zones plus IARU member society HQ stations worked on each band (not mode). Thus, your Society’s HQ stations participation is very important for the multipliers.

IARU officials represent a maximum of four multipliers per band (AC, R1, R2 and R3). Our two regional AC members have the option of using “AC” or our regional designator “R3”. Regional EC members who are not AC members must use our designator “R3”.

You can find the complete rules at;

Enjoy and good luck!

Dear Colleagues,

The IARU Region 3 Band Plans have been reviewed at the triennial IARU Region 3 Conferences.

A version using a new format was adopted at the 17th IARU Region 3 Conference, Seoul, September 2018 on condition of further modifications taking into account the comments/corrections raised and approved at the conference.

The IARU Region 3 band plan committee, which was set up in Region 3 in December after the conference and chaired by Sion Chow, 9M2CQC, reviewed the outcome of the Conference  and completed the revised work with the conjunction of Region 3 Chairman and directors.

The revised IARU Region 3 band plan can be downloaded in the IARU Region 3 website.

Liga Radio Amatur Jepun iktiraf Pergerakan MARTS

CYBERJAYA – “Liga Radio Amatur Jepun (JARL) mengiktiraf Pertubuhan Pemancar Radio Amatur Malaysia (MARTS) sebagai wakil induk dan pertubuhan radio amatur paling lama di Malaysia.”

Demikian kata Presiden MARTS,  Ir Mohd Aris Bernawi dalam Mesyuarat Luar Biasa MARTS  atau juga dikenali Malaysia Amateur Radio Transmitters’ Society di Auditorium Akademi Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia, Cyberjaya, baru-baru ini.

“MARTS tidak menerima sebarang bantuan tetap dari mana-mana pihak kecuali pendapatan melalui yuran keahlian.

“Setiap tahun MARTS telah membayar yuran kepada badan Kesatuan Radio Amatur Antarabangsa yang beribu pejabat di Jepun dan ini membuktikan bahawa sesiapa yang menjadi ahli MARTS adalah ahli yang berdaftar kepada badan dunia itu,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, semasa pelancaran Festival Radio Japan (Hamfest) yang lepas, beliau diberi penghormatan dan kepercayaan untuk memotong riben di pembukaan acara tersebut bersama-sama Presiden dan jawatankuasa JARL yang lain.

Pada tahun ini juga MARTS bercadang menghantar beberapa orang wakil ke Kejohanan Radio Amatur Mencari Arah (Amateur Radio Directional Finding Championship) Peringkat Dunia yang akan diadakan di Gangwan dan Geonggi, Seoul, Korea pada bulan September nanti.
