2009 Plant-a-Tree for the Planet!

It might not be a HAM Event per se... but I think we should all participate in making this world a better place~! ;)

Date: Sunday, 21 June 2009
Venue: Kota Damansara Community Forest Park [Map]
Time: 8:00am onwards

See you there~!

For more details:
(1) Event info --> Click HERE
(2) Pledge a tree and get your favourite radio announcer to plant it for you~! --> Click HERE

Come and Plant-a-Tree with your favourite radio announcers on June 21st!

Pledge one tree or more and choose which radio announcer you want to plant with. The great thing about this is that you will be helping to conserve our environment for a better future while spending an awesome day out at one of Kuala Lumpur's least known forests. It is also Father's Day, so why not make it a family outing! It can't get any better than this!

About Tree Party 2009
In conjunction with World Environment Day (WED) and in support of local communities and their forests, Wild Asia, AMP Radio Networks and its eight radio stations (ERA, MY FM,, MIX fm, LiteFM, SINAR, XFM, THR Raaga) and Friends of Kota Damansara (FOKD) will be organizing a tree party on June 21st 2009 at Kota Damansara , Kuala Lumpur. The Tree Party is open to public but to be a part of the tree planting event, you have to buy a tree(s) and pick a radio announcer that you wish to plant with. Don't worry, Wild Asia will be on hand to assist you should you get starstruck!

There are tonnes of other activities happening there as well such as:

  • Guided Nature Trail Walk
  • Explore the lake in a kayak
  • Take a picture for conservation <-- photo competition for all your avid photographers out there!
  • "Scout's Trail" Mountain Bike Time Trial <-- for all the adrenaline-junkies~
  • Eco-Playground for Children (6-12 years old)
  • Eco-Playground for Teens (12-18 years old)
  • Eco-Licious: Drinks and Snacks
  • Eco-Booths
  • Eco-Corner
This event is brought to you by Wild Asia and the continued support of AMP Radio Networks in support of the Kota Damansara communities and TRAKS.

Can you help us out again this year ?


The National Cancer Society of Malaysia will be having their third Relay for Life (RFL) on the 30th May from 6 pm to 10 am 31st May at the MSN Training Stadium , Bukit Jalil.

United Amateur Radio members from many clubs have been supporting this event since the beginning. This event is growing in number every year , and NCSM needs our help to assist them.

* We are looking for Amateur Radio volunteers from any Society / Clubs /individuals to help us jointly in providing communication for this event as part of our Amateur Radio community service and civil communication.

* We are allocated half a booth to exhibit our amateur radio equipments and information on our hobby . Those who wants to exhibit their equipment to the public can do so free of charge . As there is no charge, there will not be any selling we can only display equipments, educational materials and posters .

If any Amateur Radio clubs / society or individuals would like to register their team to participate in this event and parade on the track can register at their website :

If you want to be a volunteer email to or call me on my hand phone 019 2225724. Azhar 9W2AXE

We need 20 main volunteers so please inform us early as we need to plan this event now.

Its an all night event and we need many volunteers to work in shifts. Our duty will mainly be to provide communication but we will be required to assist in light crowd control, logistics,the medical units, F&B section, program coordination and many more.

If you just want to join in the fun and support this event for a good cause come join us on that day and register on the spot or you can register early through the website. Bring the family and lets us all enjoy this all night event together. You can rent a tent or bring your own tents.

This would be a good platform for us to jointly work and train together as a team for future communication requirements.
