Email from ARRL Pacific Section, Section Manager, Joseph Speroni (Ah0A).

Comment:

ARRL members in the Pacific Section have received an update on Amateur/Ham Radio activities on Hawaii Island during the current eruption and lava flow emergencies.  SM Joseph Speroni (AH0A) has provided a wealth of contact information, should you desire more details on the current Kilauea eruption.  I’ve taken the liberty of reposting Joe’s message in case you were unable to receive it directly.

“Hi all,

This is just a short email about Amateur Radio volunteers in Hawaii and
operating activities coming soon.

We all know the unfortunate volcanic activities on the Big Island.  Some
of our ham community have been directly affected and had to evacuate
their homes.  ARES members and other hams have volunteered their time to
monitored VHF and HF nets, in the event they can provide emergency
traffic to first responders.  ARES is growing, especially on the Big
Island. There are now 71 BI members and 180 statewide who have
registered their stations for possible emergency use.

What makes our Amateur Radio service successful are the many volunteers
and services provided to our communities, often organized on the spur of
the moment by operators with a wide range of skills developed over time
by using their radio privileges; upgrading their stations; keeping
current with technology developments.  Hams have big investments in
their stations.

During my time as SM I’ve come across so many hams contributing to one
or more of these purposes of the Amateur Radio service (Part 97,
paragraph 7.1.)  You know many of them from club participation.   They
deserve recognition, and when I come across the info I’ll continue to
try to introduce them.

Here is a link to photos from recent activities and awards involving
Hawaii hams.

Operating activities supported by volunteers should be on your calendar.
The link below is a list along with volunteer contacts who have made the
events successful.

Take a moment and consider how you can promote one or more of these
events of interest to you.  There are a lot of opportunities.

BTW, let’s all take precautions for VOG. Health concerns are real.

For information on the status of Kilauea Volcano, see

https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/status.html

For health and safety recommendations, please visit the Hawaii
Interagency VOG Information Dashboard at

https://vog.ivhhn.org

The USGS website for submitting ash reports can be found at

http://hawaiiash.science

A small point for those of us who are off-the-grid with solar power. Be
sure the cell surfaces don’t get damaged by VOG and water producing a
thin coating of surface “concrete”.  Frequent cleaning or covers for
protection during heavy VOG might be a good idea.
