    Hey Jug,

    That's because it is not known as Kedah Satellite but Malaysia Satellite. Check Asian Badminton Confederation site. This is what I have got from there :

    The 2004 edition of the Malaysia Satellite Badminton Championships is scheduled to be held in the northtern state of Malayan peninsula from 23rd to 28th November at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium, Alor Star, Kedah. The Championship is sanctioned by the International Badminton Federation (IBF), which offers world ranking points and it is part of the Asian Badminton Confederation (ABC) circuit. This year's total prize money offered is USD 7550.
