Comment:

Although this fascinating podcast from The Southgate Amateur Radio Club (UK) is not an ARRL effort, it does show how emergency responders and amateur radio operators in earthquake-plagued Chile handle some of the roughest temblors in the world.  For that reason alone, this podcast is worth hearing.

Eric (4Z1UG) does his usually excellent job of creating the feeling that “you are there” as he discusses emergency communications with Dino Besomi (CE3PG).  Hopefully, radio amateurs in Hawaii won’t face the same challenges presented to hams in Chile–the home of almost 70% of the world’s most dangerous earthquakes.  There’s a lot we can learn from Dino and his fellow radio amateurs.


Many thanks to all those who organized and ran Saturday’s (12 November 2016) Big Island International Swap Meet and Hamfest at the Waimea Community Center.  Approximately 65-75 radio amateurs from Hawaii Island and the state of Hawaii attended the event.  In addition to the equipment and accessories for sale, there were guest speakers and a VE test session.  I was honored to speak briefly on the role of the PIO (Public Information Officer) in increasing awareness of Amateur Radio operations on Hawaii Island.  Joseph Speroni (AH0A), our current SM for the ARRL Pacific Section, gave an interesting update on what the ARRL plans for the future.  Trends indicate that the ARRL is getting more into STEM education, social media, and IT programs.


Please send your newsworthy items to kh6jrm@arrl.net at least two weeks before your event so I can notify our local print and broadcast media.
