Information handout from the Puna Emergency Radio Club…thanks to Rich (WH6LU) for the “heads up.”

I picked up this press release during the Saturday, 08 April 2017, meeting of the Big Island Amateur Radio Club. That meeting was held in Hilo’s Aupuni Conference Room to honor Richard Darling (AH7G) and Barbara Darling (NH7FY) for receiving the ARRL 2016 International Humanitarian Award.  This information packet was given to all those attending the meeting.

Here’s the substance of the press release:

The East Hawaii District Amateur Radio Emergency Service and the Puna Emergency Radio Club present Radio Day on Saturday, 29 April 2017, beginning at 9 a.m. local time.  The event will be held at the Eden Roc park and community pavilion, midway across Ahi Street (Road 8).  Eden Roc is accessed from South Kopua–between the 15 and 16 mile markers on Highway 11.  Map and directions are on the Hawaii ARRL Website at:  http://HawaiiARRL.info.

Radio Day will be a show and tell event about many aspects of amateur radio.  See various radios and lots of other equipment in real life.  Hear about the good and bad points of various options.  Learn what may be right for you.  Get hands on experience–even if you don’t have a ham license.

See demonstrations and examples, along with radio amateurs who will share their experience in VHF/UHF radios, HF operation, Digital Radio, Packet, Linking Technologies, and more.  See what equipment interests you and get hands on demonstrations. Get on the air. Try something new. Share your own experience.  Sign up for upcoming classes for your first license, or to upgrade your license class.

For more information, contact Kim at wh6kim@gmail.com. You can also call Sean at 8080430-1884.  Both clubs will be monitoring 146.52 MHz simplex in case you need directions to the site.

The Eden Roc park and community pavilion will also be the site of Hawaii Island’s 2017 ARRL Field Day emergency communications exercise.  Field Day will be held on Saturday and Sunday, 24-25 June 2017.
