I think the confusion is caused by Gong Kedak Airbase [map] that is in both Kelantan and Terengganu. See http://www.airforce.gov.my/index.php?op ... Itemid=265
Gong Kedak itself is in Pasir Puteh, Kelantan but the official address for Gong Kedak Airbase is Jerteh, Terengganu.

Thanks Nyem. Postal Search lists Kampung Gong Kedak as 16800, Pasir Puteh. Can't find the postcode for the RMAF Airbase so I'll just use 16800.

Pastikan alamat sebenar pangkalan TUDM di Gong Kedak
KOTA BHARU, 19 Mei (Hrkh) - Kerajaan negeri dicadang memastikan pangkalan Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia (TUDM) di Gong Kedak dekat Pasir Puteh menggunakan alamat yang lebih tepat memandangkan sebahagian lokasinya terletak di jajahan Pasir Puteh.
Namun sekarang pangkalan tentera itu menggunakan alamat Jertih, Besut, sedangkan alamat betul iaitu Gong Kedak, Pasir Puteh dan bukannya Gong Kedak, Jertih.

Thanks, Nyem. Will correct the address polygon for Gong Kedak to contain two postcodes. :ko:
