Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio notes:

Darren (Stacy) Holbrook (KH6OWL) is looking for a human interest story involving Hawaii Island radio amateurs who have first-hand experience with the ongoing eruption and lava flow disasters.  If you’ve been impacted by the eruption or have had your home or property destroyed by the Kilauea eruption, please contact Darren at his facebook address– or by filling out a comment form on his website–

The Emergency Preparedness Fair is coming to Waimea (Hawaii Island) on Saturday, 25 August 2018.  The venue will be held at the Mana Christian Ohana Hall across from the Kahilu Theatre.  Event coordinator Jim Sugg (AH6AE) needs “a patience (sic) ham radio operator to demo how ham radio works”.  If you can help, please call Jim at (808) 747-4500 (mobile).

Hawaii Island radio amateurs should monitor the VOAD repeater atop Mauna Kea (146.72 MHz, 100 Hz tone) and the 40 meter interisland net frequency of 7.088 MHz (LSB) during the ongoing eruption and lava flow disasters.  These frequencies can be used to send emergency traffic should the need arise.
