Aloha all,

We’ve had a busy month of Hawaii Amateur Radio activities so far, with a
few more coming up in October.

First a reminder that participating station logs in the “Hawaii QSO
Party” and “VHF/UHF Grid Madness” are due by September 30th. This year
hurricanes and volcanoes competed with contesting so both events had
fewer logs than previous years. If you participated, please make the
extra effort to submit logs.

Many had the opportunity to attend one of Oscar Resto’s (KP4RF)
presentations on Amateur Radio’s role in emergency communications for
the community when category 5 hurricane Maria struck the Commonwealth of
Puerto Rico. Oscar made presentations on Oahu, Big Island, Maui and
Kauai. If you missed it Stacy and Claire published a well written
summary at,

The annual ARRL Pacific Division Pacificon convention is Oct 19-21 in
San Ramos CA. If you are planning to attend let you SM know.
