Looking something!!!

Well is the end of the year 2010. What a year it is!

The 1st 10 Years of the new Millennium fill with disorder, happiness and Joyful years.

Years with political changes, few countries bail out from the financial crisis, ipad make people crazy, iphone4 is the most expensive phone in Malaysia, Natural Disaster join in.... and many more...

What to me Year 2010 is a year of dramatic in my Amateur Radio life.
  • Quite numbers of DXCC being recorded in my logbook. 
  • Fail to go and sit Morse Code Examination twice. 
  • Few Rare DXCC capture by me. 
  • Experience in Pile up getting better. 
  • There are times 10M band is enjoyable
  • Did not touch on Satellite for the whole year.
  • Support DX Code of Conduct
  • Write seriously about Malaysian Ham Operator Manners
  • Join few contests still cannot achieve what I wanted to achieve.
  • Spending all my money sending QSL card.
  • I get to realize that this hobby is the most expensive to play!
Well this is my ups and downs and discovery in my amateur radio life. My own life has numbers of KPI's not achievable.

Hope for Year 2011 a better year for Amateur Radio. A year for Good DXing. A year for everyone have a peaceful and Joyful year!

Happy New Year to you and Your Family.


This is what Jeri Ellsworth tells in her recent video - Secret to Learning Electronics - Fail and Fail Often.

True! We won't improve if we don't meet the failure part. It is part of our life for us to explore ourselves and increase our knowledge.

Stumble upon failure? don't quit! instead learn what, when, where, Who and How you end up there and think What, When, Where, Who and How you deal with it and What, When, Where, Who and How you overcome it! Then you will be wiser and wiser!

This is her video!

Happy New Year!

If this eel can power the Christmas tree lights, maybe we can gather hundreds or thousands of eel in a pond, connect the electro rod to our radio and power up. Eco-friendly power. It can power up our radio and use it as QRP station.. I believe my friend 9M6YBG would love to do it! He! :p.

Below video is a study by one of Japanese inventor, Mr. Kazuhiko Minawa from Kanagawa, Japan. He uses one eel to power up medium height of Christmas light. One eel can generate 800watts with every move the eel makes. If hundreds are gathers together, possibility for QRP operation Amateur Radio.

Check out the video.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
