Aloha ARRL Members,

Alan (AD6E/KH6TU) passes on a reminder about the Hawaii QSO Party, some
small rule changes and improved Internet links and log submission.
Great improvements by Alan and his HQP Team.

Kimo (KH7U) confirms the Koolau Amateur Radio Club will be operating
KH6J from the KH6YY super station on Oahu and Lloyd (KH6LC) says his
super station in Hilo is going to have a crew keeping the ionosphere

For all Hawaiian hams:

Please save the dates: Aug 24-25 for the Hawaiian QSO Party

The HQP will run from 0400Z 24 August to 0359Z 26 August. Translated,
that’s 6 pm HST FRIDAY through 5:59 pm Sunday. Work as many stations on
as many bands and modes as you can

Complete rules:

Please report your score to

Please send in your log, no matter how big or how small here:

Non-Cabrillo logs of any format may be emailed to me directly although
Cabrillo is much preferred.
The only change from last year is a new definition of the district
boundaries which are based on zip codes. A map can be found here:

If you don’t know exactly which area you’re in, please let me know or
just take your best guess based on the map.

Also, the KS and OH QSO parties will be running at the same time.
There’s no problem working those folks and logging them with the county
names they give you assuming your logging program allows you to do that.
Or just log them by the state name KS or OH and ignore their sent county
names. However, if you log their county names, you can also send a copy
of your log to those QSO Party organizers.

Again, all digital modes are considered “digital” so there are three
modes to use: CW, Phone, Digital.

Hopefully, the WX will cooperate and we’ll have some excellent

With Aloha,
Alan AD6E / KH6TU   HQP Chairman
