Setting Antenna Tuner

berikut adalah suatu (dari banyak) cara untuk setting antenna tuner:
1. sambung semua pendawaian
- ground semuanya - radio, tuner (dan power supply)
- sambung bekalan kuasa ke radio, jangan on lagi
- pasang mic/PTT (atau key), speaker ke radio
- pasang antenna bersama transmission line (obviously and balun too)
- sambung ke soket "antenna" di tuner
- patch cord dari soket "transmitter" (di tuner) ke radio (transmitter soket, "antenna")
- switch on lampu shack, kalau gelap la, kerja dalam gelap ni tak elok kecuali sesetengah jenis kerja saja.

Amateur Radio Basic principles

Amateur Radio Basic principles as in the IARU Guidelines

that should govern our code of conduct on the ham bands are:
− Social feeling, feeling of brotherhood, brotherly spirit:
large numbers of us are all playing radio on the same airwaves (our playing field). We are never alone. All other hams are our colleagues, our brothers and sisters, our friends.
Act accordingly. Always be considerate.
not all hams necessarily share your opinions, and your opinions may also not be the
best ones. Understand there are other people with different
opinions on a given subject. Be tolerant. This world is not for you exclusively.
never use rude language or abusive words on the bands. Such behaviour says nothing about the person it is addressed to, but a lot about the person behaving that way. Keep yourself under control at all times.
please understand that not everyone is as smart, as professional or as much an expert as you. If you want to do something about it, act positively
(how can I help, how can I correct, how can I teach) rather than negatively (cursing, insulting etc.).

Berita tentang Pak Eshee 9M2FK .. Elmer dari Penang... gambaq banner aku kat atas tu kat shack dia.. Sama-sama kita bantu sekadar termampu dan  kita doakan semoga Pak Eshee semakin sihat dan kembali ke udara... Amiiinn...

Assalamualaikum wrt dan Salam Sejahtera,

Ramai telah sedia maklum bahawa 9M2FK Pak Eshee telah diserang penyakit angin ahmar (stroke) tahun lalu. Beliau masih lagi uzur berlanjutan dari serangan tersebut. Sekarang ini Pak Eshee terlantar di katil dijaga oleh isterinya. Anak beliau masih belajar lagi katanya.

Bagi yang belum mengenali Pak Eshee, beliau adalah di antara Elmers yang senior di Malaysia. Beliau juga telah beberapa kali memainkan peranan menyelamatkan nyawa mereka yang berhadapan malang melalui radio amatur. Di antara yang diketahui umum adalah kapal layar hanyut di perairan Mukah Head, dan juga pendaki Himalaya di Tibet.

Kita telah dimaklumkan bahawa kos pembiayaan makanan Pak Eshee adalah RM 800 sebulan, kerana beliau makan makanan khas melalui tiub. Oleh itu, kita berhasrat untuk membuat sumbangan bulanan bagi meringankan beban yang ditanggung oleh isteri dan keluarganya. Oleh itu kami menyeru kepada rakan2 yang lebih bernasib baik untuk menyumbang RM10 sebulan selama yang mampu. Kita berharap dengan sumbangan RM10 sebulan di darab dengan sejumlah penyumbang ianya akan menjadi jumlah yang dapat membantu keluar Pak Eshee setiap bulan.

Sumbangan boleh disalurkan terus kepada anak beliau di:
     Noor Aisyah Somkam Bt. Ismail      BSN  A/C NO: 07106-29-00002963-1

Terima kasih dan jasa baik tuan puan hanya Tuhan yang membalas. Hanya RM 10 sebulan.

Assalamualaikum wrt and a warm greetings,

Many may have realized that 9M2FK Eshee suffered a stroke attack last year. He is still unwell from stroke. Right now, Eshee is bedridden in care by his wife. His children are still in school.To those that hasn't known Eshee, he is one of the very senior Elmers in Malaysia. He has played a primary role in several life saving situations via amateur radio. Among those well know were an adrift yacht in Mukah Head waters, and an injured Himalayan climber in Tibet.

We were informed that his special nutrient cost for Eshee is around RM 800 a month, as he is being fed via tube. Therefore, we intent to initiate a monthly contribution to ease the financial burden of his wife and family. We are calling to all more fortunate friends to donate RM 10 every month for as long as we possibly could. We hope that the RM 10 a month multiplied by all the donors would total to a sum that will help Eshee and family every month.

Donation can be made direct via Eshee's daughter at:

Name: Noor Aisyah Somkam Bt Ismail
Bank: Bank Simpanan Nasional
A/C no: 07106-29-00002963-1

Oursincere thanks and appreciation and may God repay your kindness. Only RM 10 a month.
