Big Island ARRL News, Post #4, 17 September 2016



BigIsland.Hawaii.ARRL news update:

This has been a busy weekend for radio amateurs on Hawaii Island, with many contests to enter, an e-mail campaign to our Hawaii Senators about The Amateur Radio Parity Act (now going to the U.S. Senate for review), and the upcoming Big Island Ham Fest.

I just received this request from John Bush regarding the e-mail effort to the U.S. Senate:

“We have been notified that the supporting emails to the Hawaii Senators need to be submitted by the end of this weekend.  If you haven’t already submitted your emails yet, please go to the ARRL link below, put in your zip code and follow the rest of the instructions.  The one email will go to both senators.  It only takes several minutes.  So please kokua!  Thanks!”

Please insert this link in your browser and follow the prompts:



Big Island Ham Fest

The Big Island Ham Fest will be held 12 November 2016, from 0900-1500 local time, at the Waimea Park Facility, Kawaihae Rd, in Kamuela.

Our new Pacific Section Manager, Joe Speroni (AH0A) will be the guest speaker.  Joe will be covering the ARRL and ARES.

There will be door prizes and VE exams throughout the event.

For more information, please call Steven Milner at 808-881-3783.

If you have any amateur radio activities planned for Hawaii Island, please let me know, so I can notify local media.  You can send your announcements to:
