Thanks to Stacy Holbrook (KH6OWL), the ARRL PIO for Oahu, for publicizing this news item in his blog.

Remember those U.S. Marines who helped clear boulders from a home in Honolulu a few months ago?  Well, this group of community-minded servicemen are at it again, only this time they’ve turned their attention to getting their Technician Class Amateur Radio licenses.

Jordon Ussel (KC3GZT), who organized the boulder removal project to help bewildered Honolulu residents, gathered a few of his radio amateur friends and ran a basic Technician Class License Course from 10-14 July 2017 at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe.  Thirteen marines passed the VE monitored exam and became members of the Amateur Radio community.

Congratulations to the following:

“14 Marines took the test and 13 were licensed.

1 WH6FMT Agers, Jakob S
2 WH6FMU Blaido, Jonah M
3 WH6FMV Covington, Collin H
4 KN4EUI Deweese, Coner J
5 WH6FMW Duhon, Matthew L
6 WH6FMX Finnegan, Logan P
7 WH6FMY Gioscio, Joseph S
8 WH6FNA Morales, Benjamin F
9 WH6FNB Parton, Austin W
10 WH6FMZ Peyton, Michael B
11 KC3JOD Shore, Dustin R
12 WH6FNC Veeder, Cameron J
13 KN4EUJ Wright, Zachary M

The Four Volunteer Examiners, VE’s, were provided by Ray Moody, AH6LT, and his team.”

Jordon and his fellow radio amateurs hope other marines will become licensed amateur radio operators and eventually will form their own club or join other ham clubs on Oahu.

Don’t forget upcoming operating events in August and September.
