Thanks to Stan Froseth (AH6KO) and the Aulani Hui Amateur Radio Club for this extensive review of the 18 September 2016 Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness 2016 event.

According to Stan, the event was larger than the one held last year.  The event produced “double the logs submitted and 23 more stations participated this year with over 150 more contacts that 2015 and almost 200 more than 2014.”

First place this year was the mobile station run by Steve (KH6WG) who positioned himself at the EARC repeater site on Mauna Kapu at an elevation of 1,800-feet.

Peggy (KE6TIS) came in first place in the base station category making 22 contacts and 16 grid squares in about 3 hours and 45 minutes. Peggy worked from the Mountain View area of Hawaii Island.

Many of the stations used solar or wind-charged batteries to power their home or mobile stations.

For more information, contact Stan at ah6ko@arrl.net.
