Radio amateurs plan special event station

According to “Hawaii Tribune-Herald” reporter Stephanie Salmons, three Hawaii Island Amateur Radio operators will part of the King Kamehameha Celebration.

Lloyd Cabral (KH6LC), Stan Froseth (AH6KO), and Robert Van Geen (NH6V) will be operating as Special Event Radio Station K6K on Friday, 11 June 2021.

Reporter Salmon says the purpose of the special event sation is simple:

“Cabral’s station will join other amateur radio operators in Hawaii for a special Kamehameha Day celebration on June 11.

A special event call sign, K6K, will be on the air from 6 a.m.-10 p.m.

“But it’s not a contest,” Cabral said. “It’s an operating event, so on our side, there’s no pressure, there’s no stress.”

According to information on the event website, the idea is to allow as many operators as possible to reach the station operators and to learn about King Kamehameha I.”
