Missing Flight Search Involves Amateur Radio
The vanishing of the Malaysian Airline (MAS) Boeing 777-200ER jetliner with 239 passengers on board is a mystery that nine nations are trying to solve.
When flight MH370, ex-Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing, disappeared from the air traffic control radar, the MAS Emergency Management Centre (EMC) at Kuala Lumpur Airport provided accommodation for all next-of-kin at the Everly Hotel at Putrajaya.
The Malaysian Amateur Radio Transmitters' Society President, Mohd Aris Bernawi 9M2IR, said MARTS was asked to provide a link between the airport and the hotel.
Mohd 9M2IR said at the hotel MARTS quickly set up a station, led by Zanirul Akhmal Zanirun 9M2PRO, and Azizi Samsuri 9W2ZZE was the MAS team leader.
