Jim Sugg (AH6AE) needs “a patience (sic) ham radio operator to demo how ham radio works” at the upcoming Emergency Preparedness Fair, set for Saturday, 25 August 2018, at Waimea’s (Hawaii Island) Mana Christian Ohana Hall. The event will run from 0800-1200 UTC. For details, contact Jim at (808) 747-4500 (mobile).
Darren (Stacy) Holbrook wants to do a “human interest story” about Hawaii Island radio amateurs who have first hand experience with the ongoing Kilauea volcano eruption and the ongoing lava incursion into Lower Puna. If you had to evacuate or lost your home or business property to lava, please contact Darren at these addresses: https://www.facebook.com/hamradiohawaii or by filling out a comment form at the bottom of his website–https://hamradiohawaii.wordpress.com.
Please continue to monitor the VOAD repeater atop Mauna Kea (146.72 MHz, 100 Hz tone) and the 40 meter interisland newt frequency of 7.088 MHz (LSB) during the current emergency. These frequencies can be used to send emergency traffic should the need arise. Also follow the eruption updates issued by the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency. These messages are aired over Hawaii Island radio stations and through the social media.
