Dear member or friend of RAST, You are invited to attend the August meeting of RAST this coming Sunday, August 6, 2017 which will take place as usual at the Sena Place Hotel in Phaholyothin Soi 11. The meeting will be on the second floor of the hotel and during the meeting there will be presentations of certificates to those who passed the recent Intermediate Class amateur radio examination (1/2560) that was held on May 27, 2017. Also present at the upcoming meeting will be Yoshiki, KH0UA, now 16-years old, along with his father Kuny, W1FPU and family. Yoshiki is famous for his efforts in the 2010 CQ WW WPX SSB Contest (and since then) when he was nine-years old with around 2,000 QSOs and 3.8 million points and there is a video of his effort on YouTube.  During the meeting RAST President Jakkree will also bring members up to date on the latest news about amateur radio, and he will also relate how RAST's own nine-year-old licensed member Bhoom, E24XUR, passed the recent VEC examination for an FCC licence. Bhoom will also be attending the meeting on Sunday. The meeting will begin at 11.30 a.m. and a buffet lunch will be available.  Sincerely,     Tony, HS0ZDX     RAST Liaison Officer

News, Announcements ... / 6-metre band is not authorised for CQWW VHF 2017 contest
« Last post by HS0ZFZ on July 14, 2017, 08:02:04 AM »
Dear member or friend of RAST, RAST regrets that it must notify members that operations in the 6-metre band (50-54 MHz) are not authorised during the CQWW VHF Contest this coming weekend.  As usual, RAST had submitted a request for its members to operate in this band during the 2017 CQWW VHF Contest to the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). However RAST has since learned that owing to the fact that the NBC Board was dissolved under Article 44 of the Interim Constitution the NBTC had been unable to authorise any such operations. Thus all members are advised that they are not permitted to operate in the 6-metre (50 MHz) band during the contest (or from July 15-17) this year, or until further notice. Sincere 73,   Tony, HS0ZDX    RAST Liaison Officer and Vice President

Wanted / 70 cms FM receiver (or transceiver) wanted for export
« Last post by HS0ZIB on July 08, 2017, 09:52:19 PM »
Does anyone have a 70cms FM rig (handheld or mobile) for sale?

I only need the receive facility - I want to try to receive the FM audio signal from the new BIRDS satellites that have just been launched.

See here:

This would make a great STEM project for my students in Myanmar, to build the Yagi antenna etc.  But it's more realistic to buy a 70cm rx for this project.

I will be in Bangkok from 20 - 23 July.  Please email me ( if you have any kit that can receive FM 70cms.

Thanks - 73's - Simon
Wanted / Do you have an HF antenna for sale?
« Last post by HS0ZIB on July 01, 2017, 01:51:32 PM »

As per my previous post, I'm looking for an HF rig, and thanks for everyone who has contacted me.  I'll be in Bangkok for 3 days from Friday 21st July.

But I'm also interested if you have an HF antenna (wire, loop, hex beam, dipole, beam, vertical etc etc) for sale, either multi band or mono band.

As you can imagine, it is VERY difficult (impossible!) to find any source of ham equipment.  So I'm certainly interested in any HF antennas that are available to buy in Thailand.

Just send me a PM on this forum or drop an email to

No, you can't. It's not allocated and neither do you have equipment approval, aka NBTC sticker, for such rigs. Same with 50MHz.

This is still sitting in a box. Waste of a precious rig.
Sent you email, Simon.
Does anyone (preferably in the Bangkok area) have a working HF rig (mobile or base-station) for sale (covering 6 metres is a bonus!)?

I now live and work in Myanmar (Burma), and I will come to Bangkok on Thursday 20th July, and return to Myanmar on Sunday 23rd July.

If possible, I want to purchase (for cash), a working HF rig and take it back with me to Myanmar. (So it does not need to have an NTC sticker)

** I already have a resident's amateur radio licence in Myanmar - the first resident's ham licence issued since 1964!!

If you can help, please send me an email at

Please let me know if you also have any HF test equipment (SWR meter) or HF antenna for sale.

Thanks - Simon
