league_diamond_color_highI received this note from Stan (AH6KO) and Ed (KH6CQ) regarding the upcoming “Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness” event:

The Hui Aulani Amateur Radio Repeater Club is sponsoring “Hawaiian Grid Madness” on Sunday, 18 September 2016, from 1300 to 1700 HST.

The event is designed for FUN and to test your equipment, coverage and operating skills using simplex FM on 2 meters and 70 cm.

The idea is to contact as many stations as you can in as many Grid Squares as you can, using SIMPLEX ONLY. The ARRL Hawaii Section is encouraging members and all Amateurs to participate.

You can view/download the info packet here:

Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
