Palas dirajut menjadi ketupat
Enak dimakan bersama rendang
Amal yang baik tentulah diingat
Budi yang baik pastilah dikenang

GRIEF FOR MOHD RIZAL MAHMUD, 9M2RDX, SILENT KEY
STEPHEN: Hams in Malaysia associate the callsign 9M2RDX with a top DXer, a mentor, a friend. This month, however, he became a Silent Key. Here's Newsline's Jason Daniels, VK2LAW, with more.
JASON's REPORT: Members of the Malaysian Amateur Radio Transmitters Society are grieving the loss of Mohd Rizal Mahmud, 9M2RDX, who became a Silent Key on the 12th of June in a Malaysian hospital. The award-winning DXer was a noted contester and beloved Elmer who was also active in Scouting. Since becoming licensed in 2006, he filled his life with amateur-radio activities.
His friend, Piju 9M2PJU, who notified Amateur Radio Newsline of Rizal's death, described him as QUOTE "a great man, down to earth, humble. A motivated and dedicated QSL manager. Also a Scout leader. A great motivator [who] used to hold ham radio introduction classes and [was] involved in emergency communications. He helped his local ham radio community and also our national ham radio club."
A hospital medical assistant by profession, he was described by his friend Piju as a "kind and helpful guy." As seen on his profile page on QRZ, he was also unfliching in his love of amateur radio. The very bottom of his biography page displays this sentiment: "Life is simple. Eat. Sleep. DX."
