Thanks for your detail reply.
Let say we already obtain the Class B license, with budget of RM1k, what can we do with that?
Can we utilise the repeater to communicate between 2 party just like walkie-talkie in a greater distance? Or it is like a taxi radio where it is broadcast to public?

What will be the range of coverage?



U can talk from Penang to JB using the National Link Repeater !!

Hmm.. Lot of interest in HAM..Ham Radio in Malaysia have several clubs. The so called National Link Repeaters own by ASTRA which accidentally link the state which have the rail roads only (hehehe).. :lol: :lol:

From Perlis to Johor (except Terengganu)

Portable radio meant for point to point conversation at approved frequency by MCMC.
Repeater is used to have a better coverage of distance.

Both units can be programmed by the owner.

Those walkie-talkie unit i.e. portable unit sale in market is using the free band frequencies (allocated by MCMC at UHF)
Amateur usually used VHF for distance coverage better compare to UHF (actually due to the radiation pattern and characteristic of the radio frequency) :-k :-k

Basic rule of thumb.. the longer the antenna, the lower the frequency used and the better distance covered.

:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Might ask those hams better..
:tq:

I understand MART have National Link Repeater that was setup by Motorola.
But would like to know if we are using the National Link Repeater can we have point to point communication?
Or it will be broadcasted and the communication overheard by others?



In HAM communications, there is nothing PRIVATE or SECRET...

Even using simplex (point to point), its meant to be heard by others....

and on the Link Repeaters, as long u can receive and transmit to the repeaters, u can use it
and for those who can receive it, YES, they can listen. no P&C stuffs.

Buts its fun, anyone can join in.

I talk when going to work and coming back from work as well....

It keeps be company and share traffic report and lots of jokes too....

Hehe....

briefly perused the guidelines..... the exams sure looks T-O-U-G-H......


It look TERROR infact....

But if u learn the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) and guidelines,
it should be able to get u a pass or get 50% at least....

According to those who know the exam better,
the exam that I took was the most difficult in history,
and was the lowest passing rate ever ......

And out class passing rate was the highest in HISTORY....
Hehe..... 88.8% passes

And I am one really a slow learner even during my schooling days,
But I just attend 5 nites of leasons only... thats all...

Just basically, u need to have the interest in it and u can absorb...

Cheers....

so, haha seem a lot of question had been answered. ok, now i talk about how to obtain a class A amateur radio station license.

To apply a Class A license, you must :
-at lease 18 year of age,
-Obtain amateur radio class B license at lease 1 year
-PASS morse code (CW) examination including sending and receiving at 12WPM for 3 minutes with not more then 4 error.

there is a lot of use willing to help those who need help in RAE, for this year, all the exam for amateur radio had closed. so for those who interested, you can come back on April or May, pls take note reg the notice publish on MCMC webpage during that period.

Some advice, .....
During this period, maybe you can start practice your morse code(CW), time is short, dun wait till last moment, bear in mind that if you want to pass the CW, you must work hard, work smart and be self disciplined.Every day folk out 15min to practice and practice make perfect. Remember, morse code is a language, it is impossible to learn by remember the dot and datch, if you learn by remember the dot and datch, you will stuck at lower speed like 8 to 9WPM and you can't move on. LEARN CW by recognizing the rhythm, the sound, the dit and dah.....

good luck and all the best

Thanks for all the reply. It is very helpful.

BTW, would like to know the following:
1) Do we need to become member to use the national link repeater?
2) What about people didn't join as member, are they still can communicate in the group within their radio tx coverage area right?
3) Where can we see hamster playing with their radio 'live' and maybe can help to answer some question as well? (Preferable in pj area)

TQ in advance.

1.
U need to apply for ur license to use any of the repeaters in Malaysia. That incl the National Link.

2.
When u apply for ur license, u can choose ur callsign (eg: 9W2PUM , 9M2PEN) and u shall use ur callsign when u Tx.
If u r in coverage but no callsign, how do u start a QSO (Conversation) ?

Eg: " Calling for 9M2PEN, this is 9W2PUM"

When u dont have a callsign, I dont think anyone will talk to u.... rite ?

3.
I have no idea about PJ....
In Penang, YES. Infact I just came back from repeater testing for this coming Sunday event....

btw, ASTRA normally have their exhibition or booth open whenever they got a chances to do so.. =D> =D>

PJ area.. :-?
I believed that HAMS in PJ area are willing to guide you and show you on how the equipment work..

Will post the info if there is some gathering Eye-Ball (as GG for mappers) at PJ area.. \:D/ \:D/
