A tribute to 9M2GL - a news piece on amateur radio in NST website
Written by MARES Newsdesk   
Saturday, 05 November 2011 22:30
This article was written by Siti Hajar Abd Aziz (9W2JAR), and was initially published by NST at the following URL - Click Here, on 31st March 2006.

This article is a tribute to ham radio enthusiast Idris Zainuddin (9M2GL) who died at his residence in Jalan Klang Lama on March 28, 2006 at the age of 77. For years, Idris has been a devoted teacher in preparing candidates of the Radio Amateur Examination (RAE) and the Morse Code tests and has assisted in disaster communication with the Malaysian Amateur Radio Emergency Services Society.

It’s like a dream come true for Malaysians — to be able send our own astronauts into space.

But did you know that you too can be part of this space programme — albeit in a land-locked way.

Just get to know amateur radio, or an amateur radio operator, and you are on your way to talking to our astronaut while he (or she) is on board the International Space Station (ISS).

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) programme was set up by amateurs from the ISS partner countries in the USA, Russia, Japan, Europe and Canada in 1996. It became part of the International Space Station project in October 2000.

The origin of 73

A note from 9M2RS, Tn Hj Rashid - For those interested on , you can check out URL shows the frequencies used by the Military especially US military.

Glen Zook, K9STH, posted this to the Heathkit mailing list:
Many amateurs already know that "73" is from what is known as the "Phillips Code", a series of numeric messages conceived for the purpose of cutting down transmission time on the old land telegraph systems when sending text that is basically the same.

In the April 1935 issue of QST on page 60 there is a short article on the origin of 73. This article was a summation of another article that appeared in the "December Bulletin from the Navy Department Office of the Chief of Naval Operations". That would be December of 1934.

Soviet Special Forces Miniature Morse Code Key

    How to Avoid Frustration, Minimize the Pain And Gain Full HF Privileges

    By David G. Finley, N1IRZ

Note: For complete information on Morse Code training, CW operating, and more, see the author's book, Morse Code: Breaking the Barrier, published by MFJ Enterprises, Inc..

Most of what you've been told about learning Morse Code is wrong -- dead wrong. Amateur radio operators traditionally have used the slowest, most frustrating, most painful and least effective techniques possible for gaining code proficiency. It's no wonder that the 13- and 20-word-per-minute requirements for full HF access are considered a nearly insurmountable barrier by many hams.
