Good luck to you.

I think this hobby is dying off as there are less and less ham operators who are actually active.

In fact in Sabah, many new licence holders get their ticket and hardly go on air on the actual ham repeaters.

Instead they choose to congregate on the commercial repeaters. Nothing against that but if you just stick to commercial repeaters, why bother getting a call sign?

My 2 cents.

one of the reason is that getting a equipment and antenna is very hard in Malaysia. There is no dealership for product like Yaesu, Kenwood, Alinco, Diamond here. The nearest to get those stuff is in Singapore.

Japan still very much active despite all the technology they have. They spend less time on local repeater, DXing is the most fun thing they would do rather repeater even to VHF and UHF DXing from Kyushu to Osaka or Yokohama or even up to Hokaiddo.

Of coz over at Japan equipment and accessories can be purchase off the shop easily compare to here.

This is my thought.

9W6VX you are right, since they are official qualify as ham radio operator and already spend time to study hard and pass exam, why still go for commercial frequency there. We amateur radio has wider band to be use compare to commercial.

Good Luck to those who take up this coming exam...

keywest,

Not singling you out but since you already have your ticket, make use of the ham band for your QSO contacts.

On the other hand if you call CQ on the ham repeater there's no one to respond cause everyone is on the other side.
