Comment:

Here’s the latest message from Section Manager Joseph Speroni (AH0A) and Alan (AD6E).  The message contains the latest information on this weekend’s Hawaii QSO Party and the visit of Oscar Resto (KP4F), the Puerto Rico ARRL Section Manager.

“Hi ARRL members,

As hurricane Lane approaches, we need to take actions to prepare, just
in case!  Follow ARES news to see how you can assist, if needed.

The coincidence of the visit of the Section Manager from Puerto Rico,
his talk(s) on the situation on the ground in Puerto Rico during and
after Maria hit, and hurricane Lane approaching are an opportunity to
evaluate how the Amateur Radio Service can assist our Hawaii communities
in a major disaster. It is worthwhile to take the time to attend one of
his talks.

Here again is the list of scheduled talks, followed below by Alan’s
(AD6E)  latest update on the Hawaii QSO Party, an event that can develop
Hawaii’s HF stations and operator skills, a backbone of any EMCOMM
response to a direct him by a hurricane or other major disaster.

Too ALL KH6 radio amateurs:

The Hawai’i QSO Party will be held again this year in just a few days,
and you’re invited. It’s time to get “radio-active”. Get on the air,
make a bunch of QSOs, have some radio fun. This can be a serious
contest, or just get on and make a few QSOs for the fun of it.

Please take a look at the web site:  http://www.hawaiiqsoparty.org/

I just sent out emails to 1,000 mainlanders announcing this HQP so there
should be plenty of activity.

The event starts at 0400Z Aug 25 and runs through 0359Z Aug 27 That’s 48
hours total, and you can operate as much of that time as you want.
That’s 6 pm local FRIDAY until 6 pm SUNDAY.

Hawaiian stations work anyone, anywhere, on any legal HF mode: CW, SSB,
or any of the many digital modes. Digital modes include RTTY, PSK, FT8,
or ANY other digital modulation. Be sure you’re exchange includes your
QTH area. A grid square is NOT acceptable. However, the required signal
report does not have to be in the traditional 59 or 599 format. A S/N
value in dB is OK. Please convert your log format into Cabrillo. Let me
know if you need help with that.

HQP does not use counties as multipliers, the multiplier list is
expanded into areas. Please make sure you give your correct area in
you’re QSOs.  http://hawaiiqsoparty.org/Rules/HQP/QTHIDs.html

Using a spotting system is OK. The object is to work as many stations as
you can and this is a very good way to find them. Please do not
“self-spot”. That’s not considered good gamesmanship and could lead
to a DQ.

Also, note that other state QSO parties will be active at the same time.
It’s perfectly OK to work stations running in other Parties. It’s good
for you AND good for them.

Please send questions or comments to AD6E@arrl.net

Aloha & 73,  Alan AD6E at KH6TU

Please be safe during the passing of Hurricane Lane, which is now “dumping” tons of rain on Hawaii Island.  Some of our Hawaii Island Roads are closed because of landslides, including the Hilo Bayfront Highway and a portion of Highway 19 near Honomu.  All public and charter schools in the state are closed because of Hurricane Lane.  If you are participating in this weekend’s Hawaii QSO Party, please be aware of the weather and the possibility of thunderstorms and lightning from the departing hurricane.

Aloha es 73 de
