Time to finalize plans for your Sunday afternoon on the radio…will you operate from home, go to a pu’u with your mobile or HT, or play the rover to multiple Grid Squares? Grid Madness is a single operator event, but you can join with other hams. Take your radio to a popular spot in your area — great time for a tailgate party! Or jump in a truck with a ham friend, and two radios. You can even share a radio, each using your own call sign.

Don’t forget to contribute your score to your club on your Entry Form. Now is a good time to contact other club members and encourage them to get on the air! Here’s more info on theClub Award.

The idea is to contact as many stations as you can in as many Grid Squares as you can, using SIMPLEX FM, 2 meters and 70 cm. Get complete details and the info packet athttp://gridmadness.blogspot.com/

Never tried it? Make this the year! Go to the blogspot and poke around a little to get an idea what it’s all about. Ask other hams on the radio. Give it a try and send in your log, with photos and comments if ya got emYou will probably enjoy it, and you will get a pretty good certificate.

New this year:

  • Madness Mitigation — More Working Frequencies/Suggested Island Meeting Channels
  • Kauai, Molokai and Lanai — If this is you, please join us this year. Announce your Island often. You will get a big welcome!

Special reminder from Tom, NH6Y: People! Turn off your squelch to hear the weak stations!
