Looking something!!!

I wanted to get Popular Science, one of my favorite magazine to feed me on the latest technology. I missed some of the issued and I can't get it over at my hometown. When I have the opportunity in KL, I will visit most popular book store in order to get the magazine.

Today I was at One Utama New Wing and I headed to MPH Store book magazine section to look for what I'm looking for. Instead of the magazine that I'm looking for, I spotted another my favorite magazine - CQ Magazine. I used to subscribe it from US as I can't get it from Malaysia off the shelf. And is very hard to find a books or magazine about Amateur Radio in most of the popular bookstore in Malaysia.

And there you are at the shelf siting among those technology magazine. Sell it at RM24.90

I haven't check the rest of the MPH store, only in One Utama MPH that I found it!

Updates: 15/08/2009

Today went over to Berjaya Times Square for a meeting, after finish my meeting, I went over to Borders and guess what I found another CQ Magazine waiting for a buyer.

 Sell it at RM24.90


This morning is not as usual morning where wake to prepare for work. But today morning is another special morning. Monitoring AO-51 signal to capture what is the heck the this oscar transmitting.

I did not switch on my computer to record the transmission from Oscar AO-51.

AO-51, Freq: 435.300Mhz, UTC: 22:58; Signal : 33. Azimuth: 18.2°; Elevation: 3.4°

Is good to hear some of the transmission. Later I learn from 9M6YBG, he has successfully capture the signal and the whole transmission.

Those who hasn't heard of the Special Message Transmission. Here is the recording by Ed, KL7UW - http://www.kl7uw.com/40th_apollo_message.wav.


I have lost touch on Satellite many many months ago ever since I busy with my work. Every time I come back home from my work either the AO-51 passes earlier or mid of the night so I missed AO-51 very much!

AMSAT-NA will commomerate 40th Anniversary for the first manned lunar landing with special event on AO-51.

A Special message will transmit from AO-51 start on Evening July 20 ~ Earlier July 21 UTC. A special SWL QSL will be awared to any ground station that able to receive the signal from AO-51 which transmit on 435.300Mhz FM.
