Blake Stene (KH7MS), the Big Island ARRL South DEC, passed along
information on this year’s  “Ka’u Coffee Trail Run”, now in its sixth
year. Beside the participating Amateur volunteers recognized in this
story, the  Ocean view CERT and South Hawaii ARES teams participated.

The volunteers arrived early Saturday morning, September 21st. They had
a briefing around 6:00am and the ham radio volunteers deployed to their
stations before the race started at 7:00am.  It finished around 1:00pm
in the afternoon. Most of the stations were remote. Cell phone coverage
was sketchy at best or non-existent. They setup a portable repeater and
also used analog simplex and DMR simplex for tactical point to point
communications.

After the event, Blake told the group, “I just wanted to thank all the
volunteers for a job well done!!! We had no injuries to report, and
everyone made it back down safely. It turned out to be a great joint
exercise for ARES and CERT. I especially want to thank Larry Hultberg,
WH6DYI, “Rover 1” and Jinx Enos from Ocean view CERT for helping this
year; transporting the cadets up to their stations, and back down,
delivering water, responding to a medical call at Station 2 (runner
189), and for assisting Francis Blas, WH6CVG, when he got his truck
stuck by station 4. I also want to thank Sandy Shelton, WH6FVD, and
Marty Marsh, WH6FVA, for being at the Medical tent. And Tim Reed,
WH6FVC, Ocean view CERT team lead for getting his team involved in the
race. I hope to see everyone next year”.
