Kainoa Danes, chairman of the King Kamehameha Celebration
Commission said

“I understand this served as a dual-purpose event of being part
of the 149th Celebration and also giving local trained amateur
radio volunteers a chance showcase their talents in our remote
location of the Hawaiian Islands to communicate around the
world.” He added, “It was fascinating to learn about Winlink
radio email with no internet needed.  It’s nice to know they
can be called on in times of crisis or disaster.”
