Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio notes:

The Fifth Annual Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness VHF/UHF simplex contest is set for Sunday, 16 September 2018, from 1300 to 1700 HST.  The Aulani Hui Amateur Repeater Club sponsors this fun event “to test your equipment, coverage and operating skills using simplex FM on 2 meters and 70 cm.  Contact as many stations as you cn in as many Grid Squares as you can, using SIMPLEX ONLY.”

Hurricane Olivia is headed directly for Hawaii Island with arrival pegged on Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.  Be sure your emergency supplies are handy, since we could experience tropical storm winds of up to 60 mph, heavy rain, and rough surf.  The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency will issue advisories on local radio stations, SMS texting systems, and the social media.  You can find the current forecast by calling the National Weather Service (Hilo) at 935-8555.  Stay safe.
