Structure of the Organization of Amateur Radio in Malaysia

[FROM THE PRESIDENT DESK]

We are pleased to share the latest decision of MCMC regarding the proposal of Working Group on the amateur radio certification review.

In the new structure, there will be three classes of radio amateur category, namely Class A, Class B and the new Class C. The Morse Code will be removed as the proficiency skill needed for Class A. Minimum age to obtain certification for Class A, Class B and Class C will be 15, 14 and 12 respectively.

The privileges for each class has been upgraded for class A, expanded for class B. Class C will be the entry level whereby they will allow to use frequency in 2 meter & 6 meter (VHF) and 70 cm (UHF) only. Operator of Class B will be allowed to use the band in VHF and UHF, and almost all amateur radio HF band with maximum power of 50W PEP. Operator of Class A is allowed to use up to 1 KW in all of the HF band except if otherwise indicated.

The Working Group is tasked to continue of the pending job before end of second quarter 2016. The said work comprises of:

(a)NEW “Guideline of Amateur Radio Services in Malaysia”

(b)Operation manual for all three class categories;

(c)Question banks.

2016 NEW YEAR GREETING FROM MARTS

2016 NEW YEAR GREETING FROM MARTS

On behalf of Council Member of Malaysian Amateur Radio Transmitters’ Society (MARTS), I would like to wish all radio operators and listeners and readers a very Happy New Year.

2015 has been a challenging year for all of us, this is the first year for the new council member, since for the first time council member has a three year terms, in accordance with our new Constitution.

Please look at our new Vision and Mission of MARTS for the years to come, and weekly schedule of activities. The weekly activities will cover activities related to “on the air” activities, “licensing, education and training”; “membership”; “regulatory and advocacy”; “technology”; and “public service”. This is to ensure that activities will be implemented all the year around, with those who already committed to help implementing the activities remain alert and prepared. Some activities are ad-hoc, while some others require month of planning and coordination.

We demand support from members of MARTS and member of radio amateur communities, donor and sponsor to complete the eco-system. 2016 should be better year than 2015. We continue to improve activities that have been implemented in the past, and we plan to have new activities added in the year 2016.

Recognizing that relation between member and member, member and council member and member and public is essential to let amateur radio remain relevant, let us narrow the gap between all categories of amateur radio. Hopefully SKMM will accept our proposal to streamline and restructure the certification of radio amateur to be based on knowledge and experience, hence break the barrier to those who want to join radio amateur and those who want to upgrade to higher categories.

As the national society of radio amateur in Malaysia, we remain committed to our mission, which we (council member and members) will do it together. We act, we study and research and we protect radio amateur.

All the best to all radio amateur, and hope to have a very good 2016.
