Comment:

Hawaii Island radio amateurs now have two ways to keep informed about ARES activities during the current Kilauea eruption along the East Rift Zone.  According to Richard Bowen (AH6RK), the VOAD repeater is up and operating on 146.72 MHz, tone 100 hz.  You can also monitor activity on 7.088 kHz HF (lower sideband).  Some additional information follows in a communication between Kimberly Fendt (WH6KIM) and Clem Young (KH7HO), the Pacific ARES Section Emergency Coordinator.

To all,

I received a call from Rick Ward (WH6FC), DEC for Hawaii Island ARES South District, that there is a mandatory evacuation for the Leilani Estates because of the volcanic eruption in that community.  He asked if he can run a HF information net on 7.0880 LSB and I concurred.  Also I found out that Shawn (KH6SF) who lives in the ARES East District is also monitoring the HF frequency to help pass any information as needed.

To the Big Island ARES DECs, please pass on this email to your respective district members and also please pass on the following information I just received from American Red Cross there are currently two shelters open and are staffed by Red Cross:

– Pahoa Community Center
– Keeau Community Center

Please keep 7.088 available for the Big Island use at this time.

Mahalo,
Clem Jung (KH7HO)
Pacific ARES Section Emergency Coordinator
