The station will be run by an international team of Scout radio operators as well as Zakran Abdul Manan, 9M2ZNM, station manager and Richard Middelkoop, PA3BAR, World JOTA-JOTI Coordinator.
A number of local Scout groups from Kuala Lumpur will assist in running the radio station, activate social media pages, run IRC on internet and participate in 10 different workshops.
