All licensed amateur radio operators on Hawaii Island are invited to volunteer their time for the annual Hilo Marathon, set for Sunday, 18 March 2018, in Hilo.  Hams will be assigned to positions along the 26.2-mile course which extends into Keaukaha and up the North Hilo coastline from the start/finish line near the canoe hale.  With the net control station  at Onehakakaha park, the radio volunteers will “ensure coordination between aid stations and race officials, and assist with health and safety when needed.”  For details, contact WH6EXS at 1-443-492-9272 or send a message to the PERC Facebook page:  @KH6PRC.

Don’t forget the HPP Radio Day, set for Saturday, 28 April 2018, from 0900 to 1600 HST, at the Hawaiian Paradise Park Community Center at 17th and Maku’u.  According to event coordinator Mike Stratton (KH6PAC), “Our plan is to have several different radios set up…There will be lots of activities and demonstrations…We want everyone to know that the event is open to all hams, especially the newest ham operators.”   For more information, please contact Mike at jefffan@hotmail.com.

You still have time to sign up for the Big Island Amateur Radio Club’s new QTH.NET Email Listserve.  If you wish to become a member of the BIARC Listserve, send Les Hittner (K0BAD) an email at lhittner@hbci.com.
