Puerto Rico ARRL Section Manager to visit Hawaii

 

Oscar Resto, KP4RF, the ARRL Puerto Rico Section Manager will visit the Big Island in August.  BIARC has arranged for him to speak to Hilo hams twice at the Orchidland LDS Church on August 28th at 2 PM and 6:30 PM. The presentations will focus on aspects of the devastation caused by hurricane Maria last year in the Commonwealth and how Amateur Radio responded to provide communications. Both meetings are open to the general public. Other Big Island clubs are planning presentations on the 29th.

 

The presentation focuses on a general description of what happened – emergency first responders and government responses, and infrastructure problems.  There will be time for floor questions.  For more details see Russ Roberts’ (KH6JRM) post at,

Please RVSP to Pascal (ac7n@arrl.net) if you are interested in attending so we can have a head count for event planning.

 

Hurricane Maria effects were from September 20, 2017 until the end of November when communications were restored. The hurricane devastated the Commonwealth and affected the normal life of a population of 3.4 million US citizens as it passed through the island as a Category 5 hurricane.  Hawaii, as an island state, can learn from Puerto Rico’s experiences.

 

Presentations are at the Orchidland LDS (Mormon) church located at 16-1472 Keaau-Pahoa Rd., Keaau, HI 96749 – phone (808) 966-6465. Come early as this area can have traffic congestion.

 

The campus is non-smoking, non-alcohol and non-coffee. Please respect their wishes.
