Here are two more operating events that should be of interest to Hawaii radio amateurs:

Radio Day II.  Kimberly Fendt, the ARES East Hawaii District Emergency coordinator, invites every one to Radio Day II on Saturday, 30 September 2017 at the “Great Organic Lava Farm”, otherwise known as GOLF or the Kopua Farm Lots Golf Course.  The public event will feature “an array of operating techniques and equipment”, including educational and networking opportunities.  For details, contact Kim at

2017 Simulated Emergency Test.  The 2017 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.  All amateur radio operators are invited to participate in this training exercise. For more information, contact

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