Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio Notes:

Alan Maenchen (AD5E/KH6TU) is taking registrations for his April 2019 online CW course.  Alan says the class “is an on-line video chat meeting twice a week for eight weeks for an hour each.  Exact days and times could change depending on student availability.  Since this is an internet based virtual classroom, no commute is needed.  You can do this from home…”For more information, please visit this web site:

The Puna Emergency Radio Club (PERC) needs licensed Hawaii Island radio amateurs to provide communications support for the Sunday, 17 March 2019, Big Island International Marathon in Hilo, Hawaii.  According to comms coordinator Sean Fendt (KH6SF), the race is “a prime opportunity to practice in-the-field radio skills, learn new operating techniques and network with fellow hams and others who help with the marathon…”  If you’re interested in helping with this community project, please call Sean at 430-1884 or contact him via email at sean@sfendt.net.

Doug Wilson (KH6DQ) has begun a new series of free Technician License classes on Hawaii Island.  The current class is being held at Hilo’s Aupuni Conference Center.  The next class is set for 14 March 2019 at the West Hawaii Civic Center in Kona.  The six-week course includes five training sessions, with licensing exams given on the final week.  For more information, contact Doug at douscelle@aol.com.
