1a. Hawaii QSO Party

Please participate in the Hawaii QSO Party if at all possible! It is great
fun, helps us improve our station capacity, and helps keep Hawaii on the
map as an active area for Ham radio.
Please save the dates: *Aug 22-24* for the *Hawaii QSO Party*
The HQP will run from 0400Z 22 August to 0359Z 24 August. Work as many
stations on as many bands and modes as you can.
The biggest complaint I heard last year was “Where were all the Hawaii
stations?” We really need YOU to get on the air and make some QSOs. This is
our one big HF event of the year and there will be a LOT of folks out there
looking for HI. This event will be active for 48 hours, but no one has to
be active the whole time. Think of it as a 48 hour window of opportunity.
Play radio as much as you like during those hours. Make one QSO, two QSOs,
10, 100, 1,000 .. whatever. Just get active!
A map of the Hawaii multipliers can be found here:
While most QSO parties use their counties as multipliers, here in Hawaii we
only have five counties so we’ve expanded the multiplier list to use
“districts” instead .. roughly following the ancient Moku.
All digital modes (RTTY, FT8, FT4, PSK, whatever) are considered “digital”
so there are three modes to use: CW, Phone, Digital.
Hopefully, the WX will cooperate and we’ll have some excellent conditions.
Please contact me directly if you have any questions or suggestions.
Also, please let other hams know about this Party. My list of hams with HF
ability is quite limited.
