Hi all,

Despite less than great propagation, Alan (AD6E), the Hawaii QSO Party
Chairman, reports a good number of logs have already been received.
Alan promises a summary report in a few weeks. Thanks to all who
participated.

Now a reminder from Stan (AH6KO) of the unique Hawaii VHF/UHF simplex
contest coming up Sunday, September 15th.  This is a chance to test your
station and operating skills in preparation for emergencies.  Put this
event on your calendar.

Here is Stan’s message,

QUOTE
Aloha!

Announcing the Sixth Annual Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness, an on-the-air
radio activity for you!

Please spread the word — especially to Kauai, Molokai, and Lanai! On
the radio, tell your friends to “Google Grid Madness”.

The communications skills learned from events like Grid Madness increase
our ability to react to disasters.  Lest we forget, here is a reminder
of what Hurricane Maria did to Puerto Rico last year .  Oscar Resto
(KP4RF), ARRL Puerto Rico Section Manager, visited Hawaii with firsthand
accounts of what happens when the communication infrastructure fails.

The list of Amateurs who produced videos of Oscar’s presentations is too
long for this short email (see the video credits).  There is lot of
information covered. If you missed his talks take a look at these
YouTube videos,
