Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio notes:

The Big Island of Hawaii International Swap Meet/Hamfest is set for Saturday, 02 February 2019, at the Waimea Community Center, next to the ball field off the Mamalahoa Highway in Waimea (Kamuela).  The event runs from 0930 HST to 1400 HST and includes displays, vendor tables, an EMCOMM forum, and a VE session for new and upgraded Amateur Radio Licenses. There will be a $10.00 donation per seller.  A $5.00 donation per attendee will be collected at the time of registration.  Be sure to get your raffle tickets for “Big Ticket” items.  For details, contact Steve Miller (WH6N) at wh6n@arrl.net.

Alan (AD6E/KH6TU) will begin another online Morse Code Class in January 2019 under the auspices of the “CW Academy.”  According to Alan, “The class is free.  It is a great course–a chance to acquire a new skill with a 1-on-1 instructor.” The class is conducted via an online video chat meeting twice a week for eight weeks, “most likely Monday and Thursday at 6 pm HST for an hour each.”  You can participate at home via an internet based virtural classroom.  You can enroll here:  https://cwops.org/cw-academy-2/cw-academy-student-sign-up/
