Hi all. Do we have all the band on 80 meters now 3.5 to 3.6????
If so I'm going to start using it as the noise level here it not to bad.
I have been working on my antenna here and it looks like I can get it work at 80 to 30 meters now.

Hi there.
Thanks for that information. I'm not surprised we can't use it here.
I have been doing some testing on my antenna here but as the band so so bad at the moment I can't make any contacts at all.
It's been some time since I have had my radio working and can't remember when and what frequency the frang net is on.
I think it was on 14.250 and on wednesday evenings?????
Activities, Meetings, etc. / RAST - NO September Meeting - Sep 2017
« Last post by HS0ZFZ on August 22, 2017, 10:48:03 PM »

Dear member or friend of RAST, This is to notify you that there will be no RAST meeting in the month of September, 2017 because Thailand's regulator, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), is conducting a three-day symposium from September 1 - September 3 to which all amateur radio societies throughout the country have been invited to attend. In addition, several committee members of RAST and representatives of the society will be in Tokyo, Japan on the first Sunday of next month in order to participate in the JARL Tokyo Ham Fair, the region's largest amateur radio exhibition and conference which takes place on September 2-3, 2017, and where RAST will have a booth in the exhibition. The NBTC Secretariat has invited the RAST President and committee members of the society to attend its symposium when it will outline its new policy and regulations governing amateur radio in Thailand. We hope to post relevant information on this website and on the RAST Thai-language website following the event. RAST regrets to announce that there will be no September meeting and encourages all members who are free to attend the October meeting which will be held as usual from 11.30 a.m. onwards at Sena Place Hotel and when RAST President Jakkree (Jack), HS1FVL will bring everyone up-to-date on all developments, including any policy revisions by the NBTC as well as with a report about the Tokyo Ham Fair.  Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may present.  Sincerely,    Tony Waltham, HS0ZDX     RAST Liaison Officer


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.
