Malaysian Amateur Radio Legal Limit Power

It said 400 watts PEP for class A operator on 160, 80, 40, 30, 14, 17, 15,12 and 10 meters. For class B operator, only 50 watts on 10, 6, 2 meters and 70 cm.

Legal limit power may varies from country to country. The highest PEP limit power for amateur radio is 2.25 kW in Canada, 1.5 kW in the United States, 1.0 kW in Belgium, Switzerland and New Zealand, 750 W in Germany, 500 W in Italy, 400 W in Australia, India and the United Kingdom, and 150 W in Oman.

Definition of PEP, Peak envelope power (PEP) is the highest envelope power supplied to the antenna transmission line by a transmitter during any full undistorted RF cycle or series of complete radio frequency cycles. PEP is normally considered the occasional or continuously repeating crest of the modulation envelope under normal operating conditions.

PEP is equal to steady carrier power, or CW dot or dash average power, in a properly-formed CW transmission. PEP is also equal to average power in a steady FM, FSK, or RTTY transmission.

Read more about PEP and ERP. More explanation here, http://tymkrs.tumblr.com/post/10770399393/ham-radio-power-limits

Amateur radio operator should have self discipline and amateur radio itself is a self regulatory hobby. Do you follow your legal limit powers when having a 100 watts transceivers or 1kW linear amplifier at home?

Affordable QRP Transceivers For Ham Radio Operator

Some people prefer to operate QRP (low power) to save energy. Some will choose to bring their QRP transceivers during their holiday or portable operation. When the band is good, sun's activity are supporting for QRP operation, a watts or less or more than enough to make and maintain communication especially on CW (morse code).

Homebrewer who likes CW will contribute and spend their time building and brewing small and compact CW transceivers. Some will sell them online.

There are many QRP CW transceivers, some of them offers SSB too. A high end QRP transceivers will have good roofing filters, DSP control plus built in antenna tuning unit. Price may vary from 100 bucks and more.

Bringing QRP transceivers during holiday is good to those who wants to keep on communicate with their ham friends or listening to their favourite shortwave broadcast.

Here are the list of websites which offers affordable QRP transceivers for amateur radio operator

To those who have many will choose high end QRP transceivers such as famous Yaesu FT817ND with LDG and of course, a BuddyPole antenna. There are not many afford to buy high precision made transceiver such as Elecraft or Tentec.

QRP operation and NVIS operation will perfectly match for emergency communication. Remember, the lower your antenna, the higher take of angle and vice versa. Lower take of angle for chasing DX, higher take of angle for better local communication. Enjoy your hobby!

9M2PJU CW QSO With Roger W6LAX From Los Angeles

Roger Barkley, W6LAX, operates from the San Fernando Valley, north of Los Angeles.

In 1960 I was licensed as WA6OTC. In the early days, I converted war surplus gear and built my own equipment, and I still enjoy some kit building.

I run a K-3/100 and a P-3 panadapter - fantastic radio! I recently added a beautiful K8RA P-6 brass paddle - a heavy, smooth key that is a really nice piece of craftsmanship.

My most recent addition to the shack is an Alpha 8410, which is as good as it gets for a manual tune linear.

In 2007 I replaced my two Force-12 yagis (that one afternoon just dropped off the tower!) with a SteppIR 3-element with 30/40 meter option @ 63 feet. This is a great antenna. I'd have gotten a larger version, but we live in a very windy area and so I was pleased to reduce the windload.

When I was 14, a friend and I set the world's record for the world's longest QSO: 78-3/4 hours - 90% of it on CW. (Okay, it was a dumb teenager stunt - but, hey, it was a "world's record!")

I have worked 330 of the active DXCC countries.

Then when I was 44, I left my corporate career and entered seminary, graduating in 1994 to become lead pastor of the Congregational Church of Northridge. I have yet to convince the Board of Trustees to put a three-band Quad on top of the church's 100-foot steeple.

YouTube video of my station (shot with my smart phone)

A former bicycle racer, I still enjoy cycling -- nowadays on a recumbent bicycle that you can see at Bacchetta Bicycles These are fast, aerodynamic, comfortable bicycles that are quickly becoming the choice of endurance riders.

Below, my very first contact after building a K-1 was breaking a pile-up for a D44 station; with wires hanging out the top as I tested to see if it would transmit I got the D44 with just 3-watts! The picture below shows it operating portable on the edge of a 100' cliff, which enhanced the performance of my homebrew "Buddipole". (I have an Elecraft K2/100 with Timewave -599zx as a back-up rig. Can you tell I like Elecraft?)
