General Comments:

For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please check the blog sidebars and links. “The ARRL Letter” for 17 May 2018 has an excellent article about Hawaii Island radio amateur activities during the Kilauea volcanic eruption and lava flows.  Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio operators are being asked to monitor the VOAD Repeater on Mauna Kea (146.72 MHz, 100 Hz tone) and the 40 meter interisland net on 7.088 MHz (LSB).  These frequencies can be used to pass emergency traffic.  The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency issues daily eruption updates on Hawaii Island radio stations and through local social media.

Please send your Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio news items to for inclusion in this blog and on materials published by our local print and broadcast media.
