Here are the main topics covered in the 20 September 2017 issue of the “ARRL Contest Update”:

Don’t forget two upcoming events for Hawaii Island radio amateurs:

Radio Day II, sponsored by ARES East Hawaii District.  The free, community event will be held on Saturday, 30 September 2017, at the “Great Organic Lava Farm” otherwise known as GOLF or the Kopua Farm Lots Golf Course. According to ARES representative Kimberly Fendt (WH6KIM), Radio Day II will feature “an array of operating techniques and equipment” and “educational, networking events.”  Set up begins at 0800 HST, with activities starting at 0900 HST.  Money raised from the pancake breakfast will be used to benefit ARES.  For details, contact Kim at wh6kim@gmail.com or by phone at 430-7297.

The 2017 Simulated Emergency Test (SET) will be held on Saturday, 21 October 2017, from 0800 to 1300 HST. The scenario for SET 2017 will be a Great Aleutian Tsunami, which will have a disastrous impact on all Hawaiian Islands. Teams of amateur radio operators will be deployed to various locations throughout the county.  The goal of the SET is “to exercise..emergency communications capabilities” and “to provide reliable communications when normal means of communication fail or become overloaded.”

All amateur radio operators are invited to participate in this exercise.  For more information, contact cerisanders@gmail.com.

Please send your Hawaii Island Amateur Radio news items to kh6jrm@arrl.net at least two weeks prior to your event so I can notify our local print and broadcast media in a timely manner.

Opinions expressed in this blog are mine unless otherwise stated.
