The past few days few of our crew attached to the Radio Signal Unit of St John Ambulance Penang to provide radio communication and APRS for the entire Kelantan Flood Relief Mission.

The mission is challenging as most of the kelantan local voice repeater, APRS digipeater and iGates are offline due to power outage and we rely on the GPRS and Edge cellular coverage to continue our convoy’s location beaconing via TCP through our APRS Gateway server so the mission in charge personnel in Penang can track the convoy’s movement.

Total Mission hours – 53hrs and covered over 1700KM.
