Please review the attached Emergency Proclamation signed by Governor Ige for the State of Hawaii that is in effect today.
I will turn on the Hawaii VOAD Maunakea repeater, possibly on Saturday at noon, July 25,2020, in time for testing and confirming availability and coverage and pre-landfall support.
The Maunakea repeater is for Emergency Communications only and the limited necessary testing to ensure the repeater is functioning properly. Please do not conduct social chatting on the repeater.
If there are plans for teams to provide logistical support for relief efforts prior to the arrival of storm force winds from Hurricane Douglas that need the coverage that the MK repeater provides, please let me know. I believe noon on Saturday, July 25, 2020 should provide enough time for the pre-landfall comms support.
Please remember that our transmissions have an impact on MK observatory operations.
