Comment:

Approximately 75 Hawaii Island Amateur Radio operators (hams), friends, Hawaii County officials, and the ARRL Public Information Officer for Oahu met at Hilo’s Aupuni Center on Saturday, 08 April 2017, to award the ARRL 2016 International Humanitarian Award to Hawaii Island radio amateurs Richard Darling (AH7G) and Barbara Darling (NH7FY).

The award is given to amateur radio operators who have demonstrated devotion to human welfare, peace, and international understanding through Amateur Radio.

Over the past five years, Richard and Barbara Darling have kept a regular schedule with an amateur radio station in the Federated States of Micronesia, providing both health and welfare and emergency communications to isolated islands in the Pacific region.  Along with John Bush (KH6DLK/V63JB), the Darlings have provided essential medical, technical, and school supplies for the islands of Yap and Ulithi Atoll.  Supplies included money, materials, books, food, clothing, sanitary supplies and equipment such as hardware and communications equipment such as radios and antennas.

During the presentation, Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim , Hawaii County Civil Defense representative Bill Hansen, and ARRL Oahu Public Information Officer Stacy Holbrook (KH6OWL) praised amateur radio and the contributions of radio amateurs such as Richard and Barbara Darling.  The Darlings also received formal proclamations from Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim and Hawaii Governor David Ige.
