Hi all,

 

Attached is the final copy of Hawaii’s 2018 ARRL SET scheduled for October 13.  This year we decided to try to emulate what Puerto Rico did in developing an incident map immediately after a major hurricane knocks out Internet, repeaters, cell phone an all we have left is simplex.

 

County EOCs won’t be active on the weekend of the SET so we have to look for volunteers to simulate them, especially on HF. An the ability to handle Winlink will be a plus although we want all modes to be able to contribute.  Just no repeaters – .

 

Please promote the event as we would like as much participation as possible.  Stations do not have to be ARES members.

 

The ARES DECs (District Emergency Coordinator) have already received the plan and may contact some of you for help organizing participation.  Let them and Clem Jung (KH7HO – ARRL Section Emergency Coordinator) know if you have any ideas to make the event a success.

 

73, Joe/AH0A

Joe,

For the HF winlink gateway’s like WH6FG, Will we be simulating internet outage to force forwarding of messages over radio or do we still stay hooked to the internet too? I have and will be switching to emergency power at my QTH to test my system. I don’t know anyone running/can run packet on Kauai except me.

I’m also in the process of finding someone here on Kauai to take possession of the ARRL Go Kit and set up a voice/winlink HF station.

Hawaii Amateur/Ham Radio notes:

Now that we’ve been reminded about the 2018 SET, this would be a good time to participate in the Fifth Annual Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness VHF/UHF simplex contest.  The event takes place today, Sunday, 16 September 2018, from 1300 to 1700 HST.  The Aulani Hui Amateur Repeater Club sponsors the annual fun event “to test your equipment, coverage and operating skills using simplex FM on 2 meter and 70 cm.”  For information, please visit https://gridmadness.blogspot.com.
