Emergency communications training through ARES, CERT, Emergency Management personnel, and local Civil Defense agencies can make radio amateurs more valuable and useful in times of emergencies.  In the following two stories, we learn more about Amateur Radio Clubs and organizations that actively participate in training to serve their communities.

Honolulu, Hawaii.  The American Amateur Radio League of Oahu participated in the East Oahu Preparedness Fair on October 15th, 2016 at the Kahala Maull, Kahala, Oahu, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event supported the 3 National Level ARRL campaign themes of fun & friendship, emergency communications, and technology and science.

Local ARRL members were on hand to answer questions, demonstrate radios, and hand out information of the ARRL and local Amateur Radio Clubs on Oahu.

Thanks to Steve, KH6WG, Raleigh, KH7EN, Fred, KH7CH, for setting the ARRL booth and passing out information and answering questions throughout the events.


If you and your Hawaii Island Amateur Radio Club are involved in similar events, please let me know.  Upcoming events should be sent to me at least two weeks before the program, so I can notify local Hawaii Island media.  Please send your news items to:  kh6jrm@arrl.net.
