I MISS A DEAR FRIEND
I miss a dear friend for not
lending her RM300.00. It was
an impossible amount that I
could hardly raised within a
five or ten years. Even if I
have the money it would be
of a great risk to lend
without a collateral. I have
lent people cash before.
After a few month the
borrower pretended not to
know about it. Because the
amount was quite large I
signalled her of a grave
danger. She paid back with
the words 'tak halal' ( it
is illegal money for you ).
And a few years back a Haji
Halim, a Malay contractor in
town ran away with RM500.
I did have some saving for
my own living starting from
my younger days. Till today
it has been more than 50
years. Putting aside a
dollar a day would gives you
30 dollars a month, 360
dollars a year.
She hated me so much that
she barred her children from
communicating with me. The
kids are like my grand
children, one already in
university and another will
be joining another in July.
I took time to think about
it but never to regret
losing a friend rather
losing the money. How could
I depart with all the 50
year savings of my life just
to help a friend ? That's
not even attain the 100K
I do not depend on my
children for my sustenance.
At 72 I do not have many
more days to live. As well
as remembering God and the
life after, I want to enjoy
my remaining life as much as
I can. I want to see the
world and the beauty of
nature. I want to have fun
with electronic gadgets, to
have fine time with 3D TV,
flying drone and seeking
pleasure with the wonderful

RAMADAN FEAST AT rm66 PER
Ramadan feast, buffet style,
at the hotels and some
restaurants is set at the
cost of RM66 per head for
adults and RM33 for
children. I can't say what
type of delicacies are
spread because I have never
been one but as my
conjecture goes it is just
like the normal hotel buffet
I used to attend. Among the
best hotels are the present
Sama-Sama at KLIA and one
hotel I can't remember the
name in Las Vegas. They have
a great variety of food we
I suppose with the RM66 the
food are the best among the
best ones too.
These days I come to control
my appetite. There is always
a lust in us, crave for any
favourite dishes like bake
fish and prawns, fried
squids and lobsters. But how
much could our stomach could
take. At the breaking up of
my fast I only take half
packet of rice. With two
glasses of water I could
take no more. I bought
mutton Briyani for RM7 a
set, with delicious mutton
curry and dalca
gravy. I bough a packet of
fried mee for my final meal
at the price of RM2.50 and a
ringgit of cookie. Those are
for breakfast and the Sahur.
If somebody were to offer me
to have the ramadan feast at
any of the hotel in town for
free I would be happy to
accept it, just to enjoy the
fine dining of RM66. I doubt
it because it would cost
quite a fortune to spend
about RM300 for four persons
on the meal.
Of course it won't be a
lobster or a crab there.
The first thing that people
will do is to go for the
water. The more they drink
the less will be the amount
of food they can take in.
There is a limit that the
old people can eat.
I would value the total
consumption to be about
RM20, the most is RM35.
For foreign travellers the
food is darn cheap. I told
you before that a burger at
Burger King Maldives cost
USD15 a piece which is about
RM60. A simple Briyani in
London costs six to ten
pounds a packet. To the
wealthy Malaysians RM66 is a
chicken feed. For most
Malaysians it is a scary
price to avoid.
My total daily expenditure
on food during ramadan is
far below the other months.
I am all alone at home. I
thank God Almighty for
giving me life and

My drone is about 5 months old. It
crashed the first 4 days I bought it and
some time later when I pressed the RTH
button it shot vertically upwards and
hit the tree. An once I could not find
it as it got stuck in between leaves on
a tree top. I disciplined myself to keep
control over my emotion but rather to
slowly build in confidence in me. Since
then most of the postings on the youtube
were showing improvement though may not
be as good as the clips posted by other
hobbyists. On the youtube my channel is
under man4855. That's what one should
type on the search box.
For most my flight, 99% of them, I only
used one battery. The shot looks
continuous as I just maneuver it from
the lifting off to the ending points. In
my own assessment the lip above is one
of the best so far. I never expect the
view to be so very spectacular,
different from other locations.
But there aren't many viewers for
all my videos. It does
not matter. Though my target audience is
the foreign viewers who might have known
this country will get some idea of how
Malaysians live. Some might be thinking
that we still live on trees and travel
by bullock carts. I also do not know how
to promote it.
I cannot concentrate much on this hobby
as the current political affair
distracted much of my attention. We have
just got a new government.
The clip above is about my trying to
race against vehicles on the highway. It
gives me some idea the comparative speed
between my Mavic Pro and the speed of
the traffic flow on the highway. It also
shows that a single battery is enough
for most of our photography. I never
flew up to 27 minutes. I would call for
home when my battery was about 50% left.
Yet there were people who commented that
each of my footage was too long.
We were told to have the drone on our
sight while flying. I found it difficult
to comply. There isn't any open plain
other than the paddy fields. And I don't
like to fly in the open where people
could see me. Moreover under the blazing
sun I could not stand the heat. I
usually stay in my car and using the iphone 6
to monitor the flight path. There were times
nothing appeared on the screen and I
quickly pressed the RTH button on the
Remote Controller. My eyes fail to see
small objects like this Mavic Pro once
it reaches about 200 feet away.
When the drone returned to where it
started, I would only looked up as I
heard the buzzing of the propellers. If I considered it
was too far off the target I would
stopped it and flew a feet or so to the
right place. This can happen at places
where the open space for landing is
small, about three or four feet in
radius. Mind you I am 72, not a young
man as you are.

COUGH AND FEVER
All of a sudden I had a
great cough and a fever
yesterday. It was almost 9
day of the fasting month. At
5 pm I strived hard to go to
Secret Recipe to buy me fish
& chips and spring rolls for
my break fast. And after the
break fast I took the
remaining cough drug that I
used before, had a Panadol
and went horizontal till
Indeed it was a good rest.
The severe cough has
subsided. But each time I
coughed it inflicted pain in
my body. This isn't a new
thing for me. It happened
this way all the time. I
have to wait for two more
hours before going to get me
some food. I decide
identical menu, spring rolls
and fish & chips. I hope for
the full recuperation by the
day after tomorrow for I

Cough and flu have always
been my worst kind of

The end of Ramadan is
in three weeks time. Muslims
are encouraged to buy new
dress for the Id
occasion. I think it is not
necessary for an old man to
procure any new one. I still
have a lot of old and
presentable shirts and
trousers. But it would be
sad to see the young people
and children donning shabby
attires during the
celebration. The most
important ware for me is the
shoes. I have to have a good
pair of shoes for my jogging
and for my travelling trips.
The most important activity
on the Id day is the morning
prayer. I have got enough
Sarong and Baju Melayu as my
prayer apparel, After the
prayer I will stay home
waiting for children to come
over and give pittance for
their joy. These days the
number of children has been
lesser than the past. Each
child is given only a

beggar will get between five
to ten. It has been two
years since I can't even
There had been many shirts
bought but not used. They
were still wrapped in
plastics. Before the New
Year I would take them to my
old school's guard house to
give away to the workers. I
even bought some new ones
for them. And during the
fasting days sometimes I
would buy food for them.
Then I stopped doing so as
one of the guards whom I
knew did not allow me to
enter the school compound to
do the computer service. He
said that new Principal gave
that order. Such an action
did not make me suffer any
loss. Now I cease from
giving them any donation
Nevertheless I promised my
monthly Indonesian maid to
buy her a dress. I intend to
buy a couple of shirts for
her husband as well.
I am not a rich person. To a
poor man a thousand dollars
is huge enough to be divided
among the needy. This new
maid had been lamenting of
having no customers during
the fasting months. Her
husband only works whenever
there are construction job
somewhere. People told me
not to trust Indonesian
maids for they will not
appreciate the goodness done
on them. I believe them base
on my three experiences with
them. I know it. But I do
not expect any return from
them. I just pity them. When
my wife was sick and fell
down Chinese people came to
help her up, not once but
I need to do some repair
work. My daughter's room has
to be cemented a little. My
sink pipe leaks. I have
called Ah Hua to fix them.
These consume money. And
just now I went to buy
vitamins and medicines that
cost me RM412. My quick
calculation shows the total
expenditure on repair work,
maid's dresses and the
medicines comes to about
RM1.5K. Somehow it is less
than the price of my drone
and my coming trip to
China's Silk Route.
If dress does not give me
happiness and joy, I can
always find them by other
means. Charity is one, and
keeping healthy is another.
I do not buy anything for my
grand children. They always
wear sparkling and splendid
dress on every Idil Fitri.
They will be back a few days
before the festivities.

PITY THE POOR MALAYS
Sorry to say that the Malays
are generally not so smart
and with a poor vision. I
don't exactly remember how
many years ago there was an
attempt to build up the
Tabung Ekonomi Islam (The
Islamic Economic Fund). Te
method of collection was
simple. A Muslim who go for
the Friday prayer
contributed to the fund as
much as he desired. They had
a box for it. I remember it
went on for about a year or
two. And the amount came to
millions of ringgit.
Then there were discussions
what to do with the money at
the top level. To our modern
standard we would say they
came up with all sort of
stupid ideas. They didn't
even think that this was a
blessing for the Malay
Muslims did not have to rob
from Peter to pay Paul. They
should draw a clear
objectives, at least to
enhance the socio-economy of
the unfortunate poor. The
money was not to be put in
the cold storage to see the
growth of the figure.
I didn't know who were in
charge and who were the
committee members. I guessed
they were the religious
clerics. I am not
religious people but I know
how they think. I am not
wrong about it. They are no
doubt could be considered
experts in religious matters
and God, but to bluntly say,
they are narrow minded
people and very emotional
and sentimental. So much so
the collection then went to
a stop. I do not know what
they do with the money and
who is keeping them now.
With this foundation the
Malays could stand on their
own feet without having to
depend on the government for
everything. They could even
build many good affordable
homes all over the country,
or spacious compartments.
They could have
joint-venture companies with
the non-Muslims in doing
local and global businesses.
But no politicians must have
any hand in running it.
Ours is a multi-racial
country. We must not
antagonize other race by
taking their money and
unfairly given them to only
one race or only dividing
them among our friends and
families by the millions,
that do not reach the poor.
There are many poor Chinese

The poor habits of the
Malays are they like to
steal and waste their money.
The story of thefts is not
only at the top
institutions but also in
their homes. Even sons and
daughters steal from their
mothers. When they run an
institution they do the
same. They always deny their
doings. People of my
professions I know of do not
steal but I noticed they do
not have wisdoms in
financial matters. Most
spend more than what they

STRUGGLING TO LEAVE

tried to leave the political
scene. I hate to follow the
news on the social media and
tried to avoid repulsive
messages that should have
been halt by now. On the

are very provocative,
illogical and stupid. I did
not response to such stupid
political statements rather
prefer to write on other
topics like on Ramadan's
food and the drone flight. I
put my thought on where to
capture the next movie and
when. Within these few days
I manage to produce three
Editing work, compiling a
movie and uploading it to
the youtube take a lot of
time. It is good for me. It
diverts me from politics.
When I watched the uploaded
movie, I tend to repeat it
for a few time, observing
the errors that I could have
made. Among the three the
one on Ramadan food mart is
the best to my assessment.
In fact I made another one
before this but there wasn't
any customer yet at the
time. It was too early. I
contrived to make another
one at a later time.
But during the editing I
deleted a part of the
previous introduction about
the effect on the camera and
gimbal of a drone if the sd-card
is full. And when I posted
to the youtube I have to
write an explanation. Again
it made me very busy with
other things. It does
contribute to my effort of
putting off the thoughts on

Believe me I still do not TV
till now nor buying
newspapers. I don't intend
to hear or read political
news from those media. It
would better for me to enjoy
the Youtube movies which I
could watch directly from my
large smart TV. I don't
regret buying it. It serves
me to escape from hell.
Politics can shorten my
life. With a little time
left I might as well enjoy
the good life blessed upon
me. I want to think of my
coming trips to China's Silk
Route, Maldives and
Indonesia. And to have
fantasy on each of the trip.
Drone is the best of my
hobby now, replacing the ham
radio which has lost it's
juice. The new culture does
not fit me. The best of the
drone is not the aircraft
itself but the capturing of
a quality video. Every time
I have to think of a theme.
Some people climb over the
mountain to fly the drone
above the cloud and travel
to spectacular locations.
Aerial photography alone is
not enough. It is better to
combine the land photography
with the sky capture. But I
am not a professional, only
an elderly hobbyist.
Fasting month is along way
to go. It will end in mid
June. I wish the dark cloud
will be paved away replaced
by the clear ones.

I read about a person with RM400K
monthly salary I begin to understand
their position and social status. Though
they were retired they must have a very
huge savings. I heard them talking about
visiting the North poles and
Scandinavia, and other exotic places. I
saw them changing elegant dress each
day. Travellers from Sarawak would lodge
at Sama-Sama hotel before and after the
trip. Of course I can't afford such an
to imagine that how many jobs we can
create with the 400K ringgit. Basically
we can have 40000 with the salary of
RM1K. That's a lot. We are lull on
hearing of 1000 people had to be laid
off. It is much more smaller than 40000.
That's for one person. How many earn as
much as that amount of salary. The
discrepancies are too great.
Nevertheless I also met with budget
travellers. The ones in Maldives there
were university students who can't
afford to pay for a USD15 burger king.
Of course for a burger to cost about

THINGS BEFORE BUYING A DRONE
ARE YOU ?
Are you thinking of buying a drone ?
Wait a moment. Buying a drone is not
something like buying a cell-phone. A
middle to a high end drone is more
complicated than the cheap hundred
ringgit stuff. There are a lot of
setting up to do. I think it is not
advisable for a beginner to buy it
online. It would be a hassle to
calibrate the IMU and other things. I
bought a drone, a dJI Mavic Pro from a
drone shop. I was shown how to remove
and fix the propeller, how to start and
stop, how to handle gimbal cover and how
to use the remote controller (RC). The
did the IMU calibration for me.
One other important item we have to
remember is the video editing software.
If you don't have any yet then don't buy
the drone. Look for one good one. I
could not buy one as I do not have a
credit card. Using a free one is always
a hazard because it was temporary.
However if you have an Apple Macbook
you'll find a software called the
I-Movie. It comes free with the
computer. I have a Macbook to do the job
of video editing.
There are drones that can splash in
water and even record video underwater.
I asked my supplier why they do not sell
it. The salesman said that they don't
have people with knowledge to repair it.
GHis reason was quite sensible.
dJI sells several versions of their
drones, the Phantom, Spark, Mavic Pro
and Mavic Air. Phantom 4 and Mavic Air
are both having sensors all around while
the Mavic Pro only has a sensor in front
and one at the bottom. Hence it is prone
to crashing compared to Phantom and
Mavic Air. Phantom is more expensive in
Malaysia. Mavic Air flight time is
shorter than the Mavic Pro.
Another thing that you should know is
that when the sd card is full the camera
will refuse to function and the gimbal
won't move. You may be thinking the
fault lies with the camera and get panic
over it. Remember this well. If this
happens what you need to do is just
format the sd card.
Most of us are not rich men though we
have a strong desire to own a drone,
RM4K is a huge sum for us just to enjoy
the hobby. I always compute my spending
comparing with other goods I could have
with the same amount of money. A couple
of drones could be the cost of a small
car. People tend to wow when you tell
them that you own a drone, especially an
old shabby looking person like me.
Don't be duped by some cheap aircrafts
that can fly only for one or two minutes. It is a sheer waste of money. And
seek someone to coach you if you are
just a beginner.

fasting begins. It is the holly month of
Ramadan to the Muslims. The Muslims are
bared from taking food from early
morning to the sunset hours, gossiping
and doing any form of sins at all. It is
time for the Muslims in this country to
stop bickering and lashing their
political enemies. The main communal
activity is praying after the breaking
fast. It is TARAWIKH prayer. Sadly
enough I could perform this religious
rite yet until the 1st of June. It would
be a three months completion of
eye operation. Since the praying is long
and I have to bend, I have to wait for a
few days more.
I has had my eye operation I did not
inform anyone. I only informed my kids
who are in Kuala Lumpur after the
procedure. To me it was not so very
serious for the minor job. Certainly my
neighbour would be thinking I am not
pious enough and do not keep to the good
practice. I have to bare and be patient.
I know I am not a good Muslim.
Ramadan there are food fare markets
everywhere in the whole nation, selling
every kind of food. Thousands of people
flock to the market causing the hell lot
of traffic jam. I would spend about RM20
to buy food for the breaking of fast and
the last night meal which we called
SAHUR. We have to halt eating just
before dawn. I usually took my last meal
at 3 or 4 am. A wise person would not
overeat and control the amount of the
food intake including beverages.
breaking of fast is between 7 pm to 7.30
pm following the time of the sunset. At
about 4.30 pm I would go to the Ramadan
Food market to avoid crowd. Then proceed
to the jogging track and have a light
walking exercise until I feel exhausted.
That will end about 6 pm. It gives me
enough time for my rest, bathing and
ready for the first meal. The meal
starts with one or two cookies and a
drink. I will do a prayer after it and
approximately would proceed with rice at
about 8.30 pm.
routine will be for almost the whole

buy a new clothing for myself. But I
bought for others as alms for them. My
old monthly maid already had been
pestering me for the new dress though
she no longer gave me any service. She
is working in Kuala Lumpur. I intend to
buy for my new monthly maid and her
husband, at least 2 pair each. That is
the best I can do. Things would be
different if I were at the young age.
Today I don't even iron my shirt or
trousers. I washed and wore them.

HAHA rm150 GONE
A day before the election my
drone camera did not
function. There was no
response at all when I
pressed the record button or
trying to move the camera up
and down. Immediately I took
it to shop where I bought
it. It was sent back to the
service centre. I was told
that I had to pay RM150 for
the repair. I insisted that
it is still under warranty.
"But you crash your drone by
your mistake," the shop
said. I remember it had one
sever crash after the first
one. I thought one of the
components might have been
loosened. I agreed to honour
I went to pick up my drone
this afternoon, tested it,
the camera worked very fine.
I brought it home. I was
shocked when the original
camera's faulty state was
just like the day I brought
to the shop. I was very
puzzling. I went to the shop
again. The salesman just
remember something. He said
it might be due to my SD
card. He asked me to change
with the high speed card. I
argued with him it could be
due the card because I have
been using it all along. I
told him it would be because
of the storage. I just
erased the content using my

formatted it. Like a miracle

NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE LIKE NOW
It happens like a dream. Though I have seen
the consequences, I never thought it is this
quick. I trhought I would die first before
Najib would be incarcerated.
Until today I believe Najib had been charmed
by his spouse, a woman who would have been
called a witch in the yesteryears. They said
that she was in the university in the same
year as me, Shafiee the lawyer, Shahidan
Kassim, Aziz Shamsuddin and Adnan. But I was
a teacher when I joined University Malaya,
meaning I was a few years older than those
who were fresh from school. Rosmah already
made a debut even during her university
I didn't know when she married Ismet. I
heard that she was after Najib's brother but
decided to go to Najib. Workers in Najib's
office were asking among themselves who that
lady was, making the office like her own
home. Najib got a wife then.
We heard Najib took Rosmah. His former wife
was declared insane and was divorced, in
exchanged for Rosmah Mansor.
Her relatives and daughter narrated about
her having shamans around her. A lady I met
in the travelling trip told us that she was
scared when she was near Rosmah Mansor.
An office was created for her in the Prime
Minister's Department called FLOM. A weekly
slot was given to her to talk to the
government employees at Putrajaya. Then she
created PERMATA that consumed million of
ringgit, the work that was suppose to be
under the Ministry of Education.
Her lust began to be seen by the whole
country, using the newly purchased
government jet to go for shopping spree all
over the world. It was leaked that her
purchases were paid using the government's
fund. Computer image of the bill went viral.
People who talked about her Berkin bags and
diamond rings were apprehended and charged.
Then emerged the story about 1Mdb. They
denied saying it was all a lie. Najib even
said he did not know Jho Lo. Pictures of
their acquaintance were published in the
social media showing Najib, Rosmah, Jho Lo
and the Arabs on a yacht.
There were detailed reports on Najib and
1Mdb misdeed. DOJ began to make
investigation and followed the money trail
and came up to show the detailed of diamond
transactions. Rosmah herself was shown the
design of the pearl diamond which she wanted
a little changed.
I heard stories about Rosmah making a phone
call to Obama about DOJ's charge and wanted
Obama to settle it. And later to Putin about
the MH17. She said that she was too busy to
play badminton because she had to attend to
the nation's welfare. So much so the public
began to say that Rosmah Mansor was the real
Prime Minister and Najib was scared of her.
I believe that had Najib stuck to his wife
and did not take Rosmah, things would have
not happen as it is now. The traditional

We can be proud
of ourselves and keep the pride
within us. It is not legally
wrong to shout to the world of
our prowess but is religiously
wrong for the Muslims to brag
about oneself. The Malay word
for it is RIAK ( sounds like ree

the Chinese to thump oneself to
show how smart and great one is.
There is a word in any
dictionary ie humble).

the road can be a very educated
person, and be a millionaire.
I am very afraid
to talk about myself for fear of
crossing the riak boundary. But
I met people who worked in Boeng
industry and a medical doctor

me this is not a matter of showing pity. If

MY VIEW-IGP, ALI HAMSA AND MILITARY CHIEF
As the story goes about the drama yesterday
on the swearing ceremony I trust Ali Hamsa,
the IGP Fuzi Harun and one Senior member of
the Arm Forces who went to see the King
about the need to appoint Dr Mahathir as
immediate as possible. Or else they could
conspire to topple Dr Mahathir.
I hope the public should understand this.
Even before the election the IGP, Hamsa and
the Navy chief said that the government
servants can choose the candidates of their
choice. Previously we heard warnings and
threats that government officers must vote
for Barisan Nasional.
It is true that it is hard to say NO to the
instruction from the Prime Minister. It only
takes some kind of people who dare to tell
their bosses if things are not right.

The penalty for murder is death.
I followed the court
proceedings and the death of Saddam

a warning and reminder to Najib. I knew
some SB people would read my private
blog and would advise the Prime Minister
of consequences of being so adamant. And
I discovered that people do not hate

high handed policy.
Tun Mahathir is still
smart and sharp at 92. He knows what he
wants, despite Najib's last-ditch
to defend himself.

oneself is sinful in the eyes of Islam.

Today is the happiest day of my entire life.
As I saw, Najib has no faith in the God, the
creator of mankind. He boasted much about
himself and brag and brag, which is strictly
forbidden by Islam. He tried to bribe God to
whitewash his sin by sending people to
pilgrimage with the stolen money. He lied to
the masses and to the parliament.
Dr Mahathir had made mistakes before and God
has punished him severely. We all saw his
sufferings and how the man he picked up as a
Prime Minister insulted him.
Many people believe that Najib is ruined by
his wife, Rosmah. It is better for me not to
say more about her. Somehow she has been
punished slowly by God. I hope she realizes
that she is growing old and been arrested by
wrinkles. She will go into the history books
side by side with Imelda Marcos.
Both live in fear now. It is not about
stealing money but about the possible
involvements in the death of Najadi,
Altantuya, PI Bala and Kevin Morais that
carries death penalty. Did he know the
feeling of Anwar's family when he jailed him
for sodomy ? And the Americans even linked
this jailing to the missing MH370. The crime
has been very massive.
Najib has to admit to the IGP that he is
scared what Mahathir is going to do to him,
and plead to the police chief to negotiate
with the new Prime Minister and the people
about his offence.
I am also happy that we are free of gangster

blue flags and banners that I associated

of TV and entertainment programs to divert

There have been several remarks about the
senility of our mind as if we cannot analyze

these people are. Can they write computer
software ? Can they manage their future ?
How knowledgeable and creative were they ?
I have been managing funds, both my own and

travelling to distant places alone on my
own. And I developed and sold computer soft

not great. But certainly I cannot be a

I have flown many airlines over the
years. The best ever flight to the
United States in those days was The Thai
Airline. I like the food and the
air-hostesses. They would change their
dress from time to time with the
traditional dress, looking gorgeous. And
since I ordered for Muslim meals i was
served with Briyani from Bangkok to Los

Northwest and MAS. Northwest would
charge us for the earphone usage. My bad
experience with MAS was during the meal
time. Some said, "beef chicken...beef

said 'Beef' the reply was 'beef finish'.

A phone call this morning alleging from
the court asking me for my IC number to
check my court case. I said I have never
have a case and never have problem with
the law and hung up. As the court is
just near my house I went to make an
inquiry. One lady officer immediately
told me that it was a SCAM. She
described how I would hear in the phone
which was exactly as her description. I
put the story in the Facebook. Already
one person had been trapped this morning
by similar scam.

Behind a curtain there is a box, black
in color. A man was asked to guess the
color of the box. He said it is white.
When the curtain is opened and he sees
the color is black, he immediately says,

repeating it time and again.

enemies of Islam and must be killed.

loves the goods made by infidels

I don't love any particular political

and run away with people's money. I

corruption money as donation as long as
the money is not for an individual
usage. And that will be the fatwa.

a political party is also halal. And
then they will come up with Verses from

that they are making Islam more and more
repulsive to the non-Muslims, who time
after time were asking whether their
tongues could be cut according to Hudud
law. PAS is seen to lie on their mission
to save Najib and their receiving money
justify their actions they create an
infidel enemies before them, the DAP
party as an enemy that is destroying
Islam. God would halal the money and the
lies to fight this anti-Islamic party.
Their leader, Hadi, had once called the
Muslim to fight UMNO and to die against
the non-Islamic BN was to die as a
martyr. Today he is working hands in
gloves with UMNO and he has another
justification for it.

not talking of the Malay mind in
general. I do not have proofs to show
how the general Malays think. When I
mentioned the phrase Malay minds, I mean
the minds of the Malays whom I
encountered with in a certain
situational condition. As an old man I
do remember everything of the past
except that I know I have done a lot os
errors and mistakes. I don't remember
calling my students stupid nor moron,
the whole life of my teaching
profession. I caned and punished them
and never to forgive those who pushed
drugs. They broke up many families and
making many people suffer by their
enterprise. Neither I ever looked down
at my teachers who did not go to
the course of my living I met so many
people who loved to brag and show to
people of their ability. I had narrated
about a friend who was sent to a
computer course and told me the
instructor was not knowledgeable enough
for not knowing to run a certain
commercial software. "I am better than
him anytime," he told me. And I heard
people condemning their teachers for
being stupid enough not to go to have
university education. And finally a PHD
guy who said in one of the PIBG's
meeting, "If you do not have a PHD don't
try to argue with me......"
Muslim cleric in campaigning for a
general election said, "You must vote
for a Muslim whether he is a thief, bad
or cruel. Do not vote for the infidels."
So the followers follow to yell the same
texts and tones. If you were to tell
these Malays to boycott shops run by the
infidels and to destroy all the goods
nade by the later, they will go crazy
and get very mad at you. If they can
hate Israel and boycott goods from
Israel, they also should stop buying
goods sold and made by the infidels.

PEOPLE DEFAME YOU
very cruel for many people to call our
Prime Minister a crook and a thief. It
is a great defamatory remark that must
not be allowed to go unchallenged. The
least we can do is to demand for
retraction and apology. The worst is to
declare an all out war. DOJ used the
term Kleptocrat on DS Najib. And a
former world banker called him a crook.
still waiting for a summon to be served
on the fake report of WSJ and we want
Najib to take legal action on DOJ to
accuse our leader as stealing the 1Mdb's
money which he denied. Our Attorney
General said not a cent of 1Mdb's money
was misappropriated, which means DOJ and
other unfriendly foreign media were
lying. The foreigners said DS Najib
stole the money but the later denied it
saying it was a donation from Saudi
Arabia. To say the donated money as the
stolen money from 1Mdb was not a trifle
matter. Our honor is at stake.

is real, not an imagination nor a dream.
We don't wait or try to corrupt people
to withdraw their statements.
way to stop the Kleptocrat story forever
is to sue DOJ and WSJ and all other
media that talked about our thievery.
telling us that 1mdb does not rob the
rakyat at all. Not a dollar short in
everyone's bank account. And people came
to believe it. The money lost is not in
the physical sense but seen through it's
value and purchasing power. The attempt
to fill the 1Mdb holes, to pay the
interest, paying twice to the IPIC needs
effort to find the money. It has to come
from taxation, the abolishment of
subsidies or to get it from somebody
outside the country. And the distrust
towards the leader might be the cause of
investors moved out of the country. The
whole manipulation saw the declining
value of our money compared to Thai Baht
or Indonesian Rupiahs. Prices of
imported products soared. That's how we
are losing our money.
giving RM250 millions to Shahrizat's
family does not make a dollar of our
saving disappear, the plundering all of
national coffers too does not cut our
saving. Would that be alright ?
is wise to take DOJ to court and told
the judges that the citizens do not
suffer from the kleptocratic government.
Why should we let our honor be urinated
and kicked into the drain ?

popular in Trengganu itself. Would UMNO
sacrifices their seats in Kelantan and
Kedah for the sake of PAS ?
from my perspective I think Najib has
several plans. If UMNO can win enough
seats someone will ask Hadi to fly kite.
If it is weak it needs PAS for a
government. It is a gamble that he takes
as long as he is safe. But PAS members
won't feel the heat of economic

party out. The poor economy will effect
UMNO supporters most despite the BR1M.

possible consequences of choosing BN.
There must be no regret and no
lamenting. As far as Najib is concerned
his nightmare won't be over even if he
continues to be a Prime Minister. There
will be pressure from China and the
unending job of DOJ over money
laundering. The international hunt for
the crooks and scammers continue. A very

and corrupt these nations. It will be
the voters who will pay for Najib.
04/05/2018 - Abdul Rahman Raof
My predictions are almost based on
causal effect and human nature. Many
years ago during the tenure of Dr
Mahathir I told my friends that UMNO
will fight among themselves. I made the
prediction as I knew that the members
were so greedy and worked hard to grab
for a few projects. They would have to
stab and kill each other to survive. All
came out to be true. It continues from
Dr Mahathir to Najib's administration.
When I was 12 I did read a book entitled
MONEY IS THE ROOT TO ALL EVIL though I
didn't understand much of English. It
described a string of evil and sinful
things that money could drive people to
do. The Chinese has a saying that 'with
money one can ask the Satan to pull a
bullock cart for you'. After more than
50 years later I heard Najib said that
CASH IS KING. That made me thought about
who is smarter, Najib or the Chinese.
Causal effect means the result of a
certain acts or happenings.
I would expect Hadi Awang to show
support to Najib when the Prime Minister
paid a visit to the hospital to see the
former in a ward. That was the time I
told one religious teacher that Najib
had broken the camel's back. He didn't
believed me then, but narrated about
government's project awarded to Hadi's
son in law. What I said was the causal
effect that happens to have taken place.
My prediction on the winner of this GE
is neither base on the causal effect or
human factors. But it is base on what I
notice in the structural design of
Najib's administration followed by the
massive corruption. It is base on that
Najib will win.
All the time I ask myself 'where does
all the money come from ?' BN's flags
alone would cause millions or may even
be billions of ringgit. I even suspect
that PAS's flags are financed by UMNO
and made by the same company. The hard
cash given out will sum up to the same
figure. DRB Hicom claimed that 30
million ringgit were promised as
incentives the the workers.
If it is the money from GST it means the
money from the all citizens from all
political parties. Are they from
donation again ? We have been hearing
donation songs sung by BN and PAS. Who
would want to donate billions without
getting back nothing in return. Even
Najib himself had said that 'if you give
me something I'll give you the money...'
It has to be reciprocal in nature.
Or is it from China ? If it is, is it a
direct cash or it is incorporated into
the ECRL project ?
It is at this point the question of
selling land to China come whirling our
mind. And now it has become a security
and sovereignty factor.
A puzzle or a problem that has to be
examined through different angles and
there have to be alternative solutions
to it. But this is not a problem. It is
to find out the answer as to the source
of money. Surely it will be a great
impact of after-election effect. If it
puts more burden on the populace Najib
has to execute a more repressive measure
to curb any spread of possible

Marcos's name is still been mentioned
today. The dead feels nothing but the
livings feel the shame. The worst of
Najib is that he does not guard our
security and sovereignty by sleeping
with China and giving land to them and
defending them more than the fellow
Malaysians. He cheats the people and lie
to them about his kowtowing to the
communist. He is a fool not to know the
Chinese design. And the UMNO supporters
are too foolish not to read between the
lines of Tiong Lai's behaviour.
Kampong Malays who support him are poor
people. They cling on Najib's BR1M and
will want to secure it in their whole lives.

not suffer as much as these poor guys.
These Malays dwell in flats and terrace
houses whereas the opponents of GST own
a RM500K - RM1milliom bungalows. As it
looks, these Malays like it that way.
View in another perspective, they love
to pay for Rosmah's comfort while they don shabby
outfits and stay in birds' nests.

Sandbank and the sea water in Maldives.
Since I failed to bring it to the island

under water I will use GoPro.
Hobby drones' flying time is short, only
27 minutes for Mavic Pro. The military

corrupt they call it as donation and

to voters by the people, not by the
court or an anti-corruption agency.
Najib is a firm believer of CASH IS
KING. And in almost every campaign he
talks about giving out money to voters.
He does not only giving out cash to the
locals but millions to the outsiders.
For what reasons he donated to foreign
institutions, individuals and even to
people close to American Presidents ?
And where did he get the money from ?
Saving from his childhood days ? From
his father's wealth ?
course we do not see what have happened.
But like everybody else people make
conjecture. They suspect money,
millions, went into the pockets of
foreign judges covertly and quietly.
Just because people do not see, it does
not mean they were all fake. Just
because we don't see what our fathers

their true colors, their mentality and
traits. We are shocked to see people

What seem to be the truth we hide them
behind OSA then we denied them. Remember
Apandi's statement that the Swiss

when they came to see him he did not

all is giving away land to China and
giving the Chinese military power to
control us. Of course Najib and the UMNO
ministers will deny saying our
sovereignty remains intact. He is
telling us that those are for China's
investments. To use the world 'stupid'

such a decision, giving the country to China. "No, where
giving Malaysia to China ?" surely

DEMOCRACY IN UMNO ?
must be election for every post in UMNO
including the top post. But to remain in
power someone will come up with a
proposition that the number one and
number two post must not be contested.
This is where democracy is dead in UMNO.
Bad leaders always fear that they will
be thrown out and would use their gang
members to suggest and propose to
maintain the current leaders. What, if
not because of the money factor ? To
avoid of being accused of corruption
democracy must be restored.
not all of UMNO members buy what Najib
says. They also read DOJ and aware of
worlds' conceptions of Najib. The worst
is about the great fear of losing our
sovereignty to China. The Chinese seem
to be more powerful than anybody else
and Najib is kowtowing to China.
that this would happen he tried to avoid
the election, He thought he was so
strong enough that nobody could do
anything to him. He even called the
police and the army to show allegiance
to him instead to the King. Now he is
not a Prime Minister anymore. And he
thinks he can still run this country
no way to say that UMNO is still a legal
party anymore as saying Najib is not the
son of Razak and Toh Puan Raha. This is
the Rule of Law, the real democratic
process. ROS has no power to extend the
AGM period in UMNO or followed the order
of Ku Nan or Najib.
agreement of all political parties the
election date can be shifted to a later
time and BERSATU is allowed to contest

process by corrupting the voters with
hard cash and giving trips locally and
to countries outside Malaysia.

ROUTINE, THE BOREDOM
routine can sometimes be boring. Today I
have a new activity, to pick up a new
monthly maid to clean up my compound.
The old one has got a job in Cyberjaya.
She introduced this new person, a close
friend of hers from Surabaya. I saw this
one is pregnant. She had not doing any
job for several days and need this one
badly. She just have to sweep the dried
leaves under the rambutan and mango
trees. It took 2 1/2 hours for her to
get the job done. I picked her up at
9.30 and sent her home at 12 am. I paid
by the piece work not the time rate. She
asked to do the inside cleaning which I
said I will call her again.
a short rest passed dinner time I get
myself ready for an early evening walk.
Walking at 4 pm under the shade was no
so bad. Crowds started to swell just
before 5pm when I was about to go home.
I was thinking of going to Perlis for
dinner. I asked someone to accompany me
due to the long distant. Only by 6.30pm
the reply was negative. While thinking
of my decision I decided to watch 3D
movies on my 3D TV from the Youtube. I
have a 3D spects which I have charged a
couple of days ago. It was spectacular
and amazing. I watched for an hour about
butterfly and nature, so splendid and
brought my drone out while going for
dinner, may be I might want to shoot a
clip somewhere. Instead of going to an
expensive place, I went to the ordinary
Indian restaurant. A delicious rice with
excellent gravy and all cost me only
RM8. I did not go for shooting movie
after my meal. I rushed home

current new maid had asked me time and
again to look for a new wife to kill my
boredom. At least I will have a company, somebody
to talk to. She is different from the
former one who showed less concern.
tomorrow I do not have any special
program yet. I still could not figure
out the next location for shooting
pictures unless I am willing to move out
of my district, like going to Langkawi,
Phuket, Cameron Highland or even drive
to the East Coast. That would be very
hectic, and uninteresting without a
company. Then I have to follow the
routine again. At 9 am will go for my
breakfast and then coming home for
computing or viewing videos on my TV. At
3 pm will go for my lunch and 5 pm
putting on the evening exercise attire.

PAS MEMBERS WILL GO TO HELL ?
Don't be surprise if Muslim clerics are
called terrorists. They are very
pompous, spewed their words with full of
emotion. I am not a fan of DAP but I
analyzed things with reasons and
rationality. Hadi said that he condemned
DAP with the party rejected Hudud.
Didn';t he know the percentage of UMNO
Malays who also rejected the Islamic
Law. Dr Mashitoh Ibrahim even argued
against it in the mosque. And MCA as
well as Gerakan stand firm against the
image of Hadi's terrorist was seen in
the Memali incidence where the PAS
members believed the infidel government
must be thrown down. UMNO was regarded
as running the infidel constitution.
There were a series of speeches inciting
the Malays against DAP for being
anti-Islam as if PAS members and the
party are the martyrs. Heaven is only
made for them. PAS seem to know better
than God what's in human's hearts.
Hadi and Ustaz Idrus and probably all
PAS members underestimate and look down
upon women. They thought only men can
lead the country as a Minister or a
President. Idrus said that women are
always inferior to men in physical
strength and sports. Take both to race
with normal women or join the jogging
events with them, only then they will
know who is stronger.

MONEY FROM GOD
have always known that whenever ulama
receive any form of money they will say
they are from God. The word is REZEKI,
God's providence. I narrated a story
about a murderer who said that he did
not shoot a man but the gun was. So
catch the gun and jailed it. On further
argument he said I don't have any
intention of shooting at all. It was my
hand that was wrong, cut my hand and
new way of accepting bribes is to
say,"Don't give me the money. I won't
touch it. If you insist give it to my in
law or my friends or my wife".
read about several ulama who live beyond
their mean from an instant wealth coming
from nowhere. They know that to say they
save from when they were young their
tongue must be cut immediately. The only
right answer is to say it comes from
God. Indeed to the Muslims whatever
things they receive are given by God. I
have to admit that too. So they bought
luxury cars and built million dollar
lodging and even marry another wife.
Could they be wrong ?

AND PAS TALK OF DAP's RULE
China takes control everyone must know
Mandarin. China did not raise up on any
other language but the Chinese Hua Yi.
There are already many Malays who have
sent their kids to Chinese school. I
went to night class on my own accord in
1962. Millions of PAS and UMNO members
have not acquired the knowledge though
Rosmah's son is a Chinese educated.
China's control is something inevitable.
They have set their feet here, own a
huge land area and applied their own
regulations over the Malaysian rules.
Part of China's territories are here, in
Johor and Pahang where their rules are
applied. DS Najib Razak had said that
Forest City is not even on Johore's
land. And China has it's university here
instead of having it in China. We call
it China's investments that will bring
prosperity to the Malays.
our military land has been
disintegrated. Later the farmland will
be attacked. Things may take years as
the Malay fishermen in Kuala Kedah lost
their total business and disintegrate,
leaving a few to survive as inshore.
Even farmland has been changing hands.
The Malays seem to like it these ways.
They are happy to live in terrace houses
while others are owning a million dollar
China's hotels and businesses will use
the Malays as long as they need them and
will chuck them off when their services
are no longer required.

do not share my view. But it will not
harm me. It is the risk they love to
take. The future generations do not feel
the regret as they do not know the past.

seats in the GE14 if proven that he is a

attacked DAP for doing so. He approved
all Najib's deal with China, approved

FOR CHINA ECRL
ELECTION AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE
not at all surprise as the secret was
out, It just confirm my vision of the
Chinese design, vehemently denied by
Najib and his supporters. If I were
China I would ask the most from Najib
since I have had help him and save his
fools would believe in Najib. The
majority of the fools are the Malays.
The Malays despite their education have
failed to observe their environments,
the history of this country and knew
nothing whatever happened in the 18th
and 19th century. Only a few on the
ground and who travelled far and wide
began to see things.
most desperate man in UMNO is Najib. He
is in need of money. China knew it and
they observed his behaviours and
actions. Surely he needed the money to
fill in the 1Mdb's hole as his foes were
telling him 'SHOW US THE MONEY'. The
money first started with the term UNITS
because they weren't any. When they ran
to China for help probably with the help
of Jho Lo and Tiong Lai. Then the demand
began. "If you want our money you must
comply to our help". I would put such
lands and rights were given to China and
the military Najib tells the Malays
"THEY ARE INVESTMENTS". All were asked
to sing the same INVESTMENT song.
Malays did not know of the defence
agreement with the Chinese that saw
China's sub-marines in Malaysian water,
the Great wall of China in Kuantan about
7 km long, China's territory in Johor
and more land sold to the Chinese. Even
the land in Langkawi was said to be
leased the Middle Kingdom.
all started with Chinese culture which
was denied by UMNO. Now Najib bows to
the Chinese that all workers must be
from China. The secret kept was
everything is free of GST.
Malaysia the toddlers, blind men, the
crippled, the poor and the dead are all
subjected to GST. Najib defend it as he
defended the Forest City "IT WAS NOT
EVEN ON JOHOR'S LAND".
else are supporting Najib. Hadi Awang
did. His remarks either show a direct
support or insinuation of the support.
The pictures of Hadi and Najib on this
page speak by themselves. Only now as
PAS grassroots were questioning the love
affair between Hadi and Najib he said "I
DID NOT EMBRACE NAJIB, BUT NAJIB DID" .
Twist and turn and spinning has become
the culture of this so called Islamic
party. They are now going around to say
they are not UMNO.
Najib is a traitor to the Malaysian
people then PAS who support Najib could
be labelled as a traitor too. However
PAS is not so bad as the UMNO women who
carried the placards that wrote "WE
SUPPORT GST" and one UMNO old man who
said 'GST IS FOR THE RAKYAT'.
collected from the rakyat is for the

also for the rakyat. Funny. As for the

pre-war election has shown a massive
wastage by UMNO and PAS on the flags
itself. They won't come free together
with the bamboos. From my estimation,
PAS would not have the mean to pay for
the numerous green garments. I think
flag alone could cost more than 100
million ringgit throughout the country.

pictures that they were made in China. I

corruptions. Kampong people were taken
to take trips and all expenditures paid

same thing. I can't say about PH. In the
past important supporters were given a
trip to Hong Kong, Indonesia and even
Europe. The same things may happen now.
does the money come from ?
comes from China then brace for the
worst when BN wins. Whoever in the world
wants to give away his own money for
free. Donation again as Najib claimed
from Saudi, spent in GE13 ? didn't Najib

the election periods there isn't a flag

himself and will go all out to make sure
that he will win, at any cost.
the worst is coming.

FAIL CHINA'S PRODUCTS
I have to remind that we have to be wise
with our spending unless we are really
wealthy. We always want the best. May be
an iPhone, a TV, a freezer, or a hobby
gadget. But funny things do
happen. I once saw a lady leaving her
car entered a bank with a mobile device
and asked whether Br1m had been banked
in. I saw ladies with all sort of credit
cards in their wallets, giving me an
impression of their economic status.
I am just like everybody else, craze for
the best like a millionaire. The only
difference is that I do not like to buy
on instalments or making loan to cater
for my desires. So I only look for the
affordable stuffs when I have enough
money. The latest craze is flying a
I spent almost 5K for a Mavic Pro. I
regretted for not waiting a little to
get the same one for less than 4K. A
drone is just a toy that provide me no
return. A small new car is about RM25K,
which will serve me for at least 5 long
years at the minimum. Imagine if I were
to procure a drone at that price. It
would be a darn fool of me to spend that
much. But each day a very advance and
complex drone appears in the market. It
does jerk me.
Today I do not accumulate money to
travel at a far distant land which are
very costly. Each trip may cost me about
RM20K. I still can afford to satisfy my
lust on a RM3K or RM4K trip. Yet I
considered myself as a lavish spender.
The good thing is that I am sober when
deciding to spend, and always consult my
mind about it.
I am not a miser though. I spent on good
food, and travelling. So much so some
people formed conceptions that I was a
wealthy guy, and approached me for a
huge loan up to RM300K. It was the
greatest joke on earth. One asked me to
redeem her jewellery from a pawn shop.
Another wanted to borrow my car for
weeks without wanting to meet my request
of sending me to an airport just for a
few minutes of her time. And they dumped
their friendships with me.
When you are sober you always compute
the opportunity cost of your spending.
What else can you buy with the same
amount of money and estimate the amount
of service you will get from them.
I found that I saved about RM6K a year
without smoking, subscription to ASTRO,
and buying newspapers. It is the
internet that sucks me most. And
therefore I never have any mobile
internet and I use Redone for my
cell-phone. Redone is always below Ram15

A dipole for 40 meter band had been very
convenient for local work. I understood
that the ground wave was good too.
The choice for 20 and 15 then were only
for Dxing. It was very rare we could
work among the local hams on those
bands. Since I could use 40 for 15 I did
not have any other antenna.
To me the most convenient is the
Inverted V with a single mast. The
choice of a bamboo was because when it
get dried and turned yellow, it get very
light. I could hoist it up single
handed. Making it like a flag post with
a rope and a pulley. I could put up my
antenna whenever I like, by attaching it
to the rope and pull the rope. Simple.
In the modern days people fix the dipole
to the mast so that they can rotate the
mast to the direction they prefer.
Professor Yagi added elements to the
dipole and named them as director and
reflectors to make it more directional
as well for more gain.
As I said that old hams did not make 40

stations. So yagi were mainly
constructed for 20 and 15. In the

IS IN SERVICE AGAIN
When I want to go SWLing or to be on the
radio, I have to switch off my MODEM, It
is beautiful and quiet without it.
Recently I procured a new rig FT450 as
my electronic key stopped working with
my IC750 Pro and it did not work with my
FT857. I could not open up the front
panel to investigate why it only work on
one side. I do not have any problem with
the straight key. But I cannot go high
speed with the later. Then I plugged in
into FT857, the paddle did not function.
Thinking both of the rigs have gone
kaput as far as electronic key is
concerned, I purchased the 450.
My iambic key goes to work again.
It puzzled me why it did not go with
another small Yaesu, which I rarely used
due to the noise level as compared to
the Icom. I read the manual again and
examined how to operate CW. Having
putting on the right setting, again the
e-key fires up like nobody's business.
Indeed it was for me. The last one is to
try hard to make my key work with the
756Pro. I tried to open the rig up but
in vain. I read the manual again. And
found that the up-dwn button on the
microphone can be used for CW. It was a
good news for me. The next day I went to
an electronic shop and bought an eight
pin plug and sockets. I studied the
schematic of the button-microphone
connection, applied it to the e-key. It
was amazing. The dit and the dah sounded
well but the iambic did not work. But it
is good enough for the paddle. Whenever
I want to use my IC756pro using a
paddle, I just have to pluck in the 8
pins female socket with a minor
attachment to my key.
If I had been patient enough to do the
thorough investigation before decided on
the FT450, I could have saved RM2.5K.
The very comfortable speed for me is 25
words per minute. But to work with a new

at the speed of 5 wpm. Long distant
stations which we termed as DX are
commonly running at about 25wpm. But I
do not want to work them for two
reasons. The first one is I do not want
to send QSL cards anymore. It is an
expensive affair nowadays even through a
bureau. And secondly I prefer
rag-chewing rather than the short
contact by only giving signal report and
then signed off.

behavioral pattern and attitudes. He

Later he will be looking for money to
pay and cover the holes. That's how the
colossal debts came about, the GST came
into being, the abolishing of subsidies
took shape and the selling of lands to
Chine started the track.
Go and ask the Malays whether they care
about their generations. Go and ask UMNO
politicians about their generation. Some
of the members of the general public
might be worried. None of UMNO leaders
does. If they do they won't be

WONDER OF WWW
always been to countries beyond your shore ?
Today, travelling and holiday trips are
common features of our society. The most
handy stuff everyone carries with them is
the cell-phones. A few carries iPads. While
I was in a bus in Spain I talked back to
friends at home and sent them pictures that
I captured on the move. A few using Skype to
communicate with their kids and grand
children. No wonder a university friend of
mine was laughing at me and asked me to
throw away ham radio. "Tell me in what way
ham radio is better then the modern world
wide web ?"
I think in a
way he was right. Even today take the
amateur radio operators of the world and
investigate their time spent on the social
media and radio communication ? The
superiority of internet technology over the
radio is beyond comparison. The other day I
called a grab car. As the taxi moved I could
see him where he was. And on the Whatapp
similar facility is also available. I asked
myself 'why I need the APRS for ? ' And the
need to use RTTY, AMTOR, FACTOR etc when
messages can be sent across the world just
by typing ? Send now and nano seconds later
it can be read by the recipients on the moon
and other galaxies.
The answer is
simple. It is a matter of taste. If you find
sending message through digital mode suit
you then go with it. The millions who love
to use the WWW then let them enjoy
themselves with this style. My radio has the
digital modes but I just ignore them.
I spent about
99% of my communication time on WWW. Once in
while I would go on the radio to call CQ on
Morse codes for a kick. It is something
different that not everyone knows. It
provides a satisfactory feeling and the
feeling of personal achievement. It is not a
technology but it is a code. And it is also
not for comparison.
traveller would choose to leave his/her
smart-phone at home ? Which ham radio
operator would bring his rig along during
the trip ?
