Congratulations to Kimo Chun (KH7U) and Krassimir Petrov (K1LZ/LZ1SA) for their induction into the CQ DX Hall of Fame.  Kimo serves with the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency and is known for his support of Pacific-based DX-peditions.  Here’s the paragraph describing Kimo’s activities:

“Kimo Chun, KH7U – was nominated by the Dateline DX Association, of which is is a founding member. He has operated on many major DXpeditions, including Kingman Reef, Christmas Island, Palmyra Atoll, Cambodia and Midway Island. In addition, he routinely provides logistical assistance to hams planning Pacific island DXpeditions; and provides electronic maintenance support for groups administering Pacific island nature preserves, including the Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. A longtime member of Hawaii’s Department of Emergency Management RACES team, Kimo was recently featured on an NBC News story about last year’s accidental nuclear attack alert message sent out in Hawaii, and emphasized the role played by amateurs as the first to alert the public that the message was sent in error.”

Hawaii Island radio amateurs should continue monitoring the VOAD Reapeater (146.70 MHz, 100 Hz tone) and the 40 meter interisland net at 7.088 kHz (LSB) during the current eruption and lava flow emergency. Both frequencies can be used to sen emergency traffic.  The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency issues frequents updates on Hawaii Island broadcast stations and through the social media.

Please send your Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio news items to for inclusion in the blog and on press releases issued by our local print and broadcast media.

Thanks for joining us today.

Until next time,
