Hawaii Island Amateur/Ham Radio News:

The next meeting of the Big Island Amateur Radio Club will be held on Saturday, 13 April 2019, 1400 HST, at the Puna Covenant Church just up the road from the Keaau Community Center.

According to ARRL Pacific Section Manager Joseph Speroni (AH0A), “The ARRL has restructured its EmComm program to address the practical aspects of radio communications as well as the skills needed to better serve local communities in emergencies.”  To reflect the changed emphasis, the ARRL Education Department has released its revised EC-001 Course.  The course “addresses Hawaii’s situation as an island state.”  Pacific Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC) Clem Jung (KH7HO) “will handle student registration for the EC-001 course and coordinate scheduling with the ARRL Education department…this course is being offered free of charge by the ARRL to all Amateur Radio operators.”  To register, contact Clem at kh7@arrl.net.

19 April 2019, 6:30 p.m., at Discovery Harbor in Ka’u.
