General Comments:

During the current Kilauea volcano eruption and the ongoing lava flows impacting the Lower Puna District, Hawaii radio amateurs should monitor the VOAD Repeater on Mauna Kea (146.720 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 eruption updates throughout the day on Hawaii Island broadcast stations and through the social media.
