Upcoming events for Hawaii radio amateurs:
Don’t forget the 2017 Simulated Emergency Exercise 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 effect on all Hawaiian Islands. Teams of amateur radio operators will be deployed to several locations throughout Hawaii County “to exercise…emergency communications capabilities” and “to provide reliable communications when normal means of communications fail or become overloaded.” Radio amateurs will work closely with the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency and the Hawaii Chapter of the American Red Cross. All amateur radio operators are invited to participate in this exercise. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
