Stan Froseth (AH6KO) is the new Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator for Hawaii Island.
Here is the press release as it appeared in https://oahuarrlnews.wordpress.com:
New Appointment of Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator for the Big Island
I was first licensed in 1968 (WA0VIS), running CW and building transmitters. After a long absence, I returned to amateur radio in 2012, mainly to get involved in emergency communications. I’m now active with CW and RTTY contesting, other digital modes, HF and VHF phone nets, organizing Grid Madness, and a few new projects too. During that long break I worked as an electrical engineer, computer analyst, teacher, baker, and old house fixer.
I have training in CERT (2013-2014, not currently active), ICS-100, 200, 700 and 800 (in 2014), all highly recommended for EmComm hams! I am scheduled for the official SkyWarn training that will be offered on the Big Island in June, and plan to complete one or more of the ARRL EmComm courses.
Please contact me with questions about training opportunities, and with your ideas about how we can improve our capabilities as emergency communicators on the Big Island!
Aloha and 73~ Stan AH6KO
Thank you Stan and the support from his XYL Lynn.
