For Hawaii radio amateurs, there are two events this month worth your time:

The entire Hawaii Island community, including licensed Hawaii Amateur Radio operators, are invited to the second ARES Radio Day II set for  Saturday, 30 September 2017, at the “Great Organic Lava Farm” otherwise known as GOLF or the Kopua Farm Lots Golf Course.  Radio II Day will feature an array of operating techniques and equipment at the fun, educational, and networking event.  Contact Kim at

Also, don’t forget the 2017 Simulated Emergency Test on Saturday, 21 October 2017, from 0800 to 1300 HST. I’ll have more information on that event later.

For the latest Amateur Radio News and Information, please check the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily and weekly.

Please send your Hawaii Amateur Radio news items to at least two weeks prior to your event so I can notify our local print and broadcast media in a timely manner.
