Here are some of the upcoming events that may interest radio amateurs on Hawaii Island:

This annual event will be held on Saturday, 13 January 2017, at the Waimea Community Center in Kamuela.

HRN 377 is one of the more interesting and controversial videocasts published by HamRadioNow.  In this podcast, Gary Pearce (KN4AQ) and Dan Romanchik (KB6NU) discuss the “CQ Magazne” report on changes to ARRL governing documents.  The ARRL has proposed a major revision in the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws with recommendations on how the ARRL Board removes a member and a director.  That meeting is set for this month at ARRL Headquarters.  Gary and Dan also discuss the future  of HamRadioNow.
