North Shore APRS coverage

KH6CP Craig Paul
 

I hope everyone had a pleasant July 4th!

With the addition of an APRS digipeater/iGate in Haleiwa there is now North Shore
APRS coverage from Pupukea to near the Kaena Point trail head (past Dillingham
Air Field).

We're still looking for Laie/Kahuku and Waianae/Maili/Nanakuli locations.
If you know of any ham in those areas who might be interested please let me know!

Craig/KH6CP


Looking for HF ham band crystals

KH6WM Warren Munro
 

Does anyone in EARC have any HF ham band transmitting crystals laying around (both old style FT-243 and newer HC series are all OK with me) ? Needed for QRP projects.

Will buy or trade for other goodies.

Please phone 808-487-1863 or e-mail as above.

Cheers

Warren KH6WM

Aloha EARC all:

Announcing the Eighth Annual Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness! This early notice is for leaders in the Hawaii amateur radio community. We thank you for supporting this event!

Please, if you can -- spread the word via radio nets, meetings, newsletters, calendars, web sites, social media, or just tell another ham! On the radio, you can provide the URL below, or suggest "Google Grid Madness". (The "crab" graphic below helps to distinguish 2021 event info from previous years.)

You can use this Publicity Info, and anything from gridmadness.blogspot.com. We will email a general announcement in late July, and a reminder in early September.

Thanks again and 73~
Stan AH6KO (Event Manager)

Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness 2021

A VHF/UHF Simplex Event

Sunday, September 19th from 1300 to 1700 HST


 



Put it on your calendar!

All info at gridmadness.blogspot.com


Grid Madness is a FUN event for all hams in the State of Hawaii. Test your equipment, coverage and operating skills using simplex FM on 2 meters, 70 cm, 1.25 meters and 6 meters. Talk to as many stations as you can, in as many Grid Squares as you can, using SIMPLEX ONLY. See who you can contact on your island, or across the water!

New for 2021: 6 meters is new this year and 1.25 meters will again be offered after a successful debut last year. For more info, see Make Contacts on 50 and 220 MHz. Also new -- scores will be computed using traditional amateur radio Contest Scoring. For details, click the links!

Comments and questions: AH6KO@...

==============================
Please consider and plan on participating.  It's a great event with which you can evaluate your simplex capabilities and limitations and have fun at the same time. 

Aloha

FD 2021

KH6WG Skawamae Kawamae
 

Aloha All,
Another ARRL Field Day in the books.  Thanks to all who came out to partake of radio, food and fellowship.  The turnout was better than expected.  Sadly the propagation wasn't so great.  We were setup and able to operate by about 0830.  We pulled the plug at 1500 as propagation was not favorable.  The EARC logged 17 contacts, half of which were not DX.  All great fun.  Special thanks to all those who lent a hand for setup and take down.  That is always the most challenging and draining.  It was quite warm and humid from beginning to end.  Congrats to WH6DLP/AE.

Aloha & 73

Field Day Extra Points

KH7HO Clem
 

To all,

You can get extra points on Field Day, if you choose to do so, by doing the following (confirmed with Paul Bourque, N1SFE, ARRL Contest Coordinator, on a phone call this morning):
1 - Send up to ten (10) formal messages for 10 points each for a maximum of a 100 points:
     - The message will need to be transmitted via RF (not internet or Telnet) from your operating site and during the hours of Field Day and messages can go to a Winlink gateway
     - Use of Winlink Check-In form to ETO-HI is permitted (information sent out yesterday)
     - Use of Winlink ICS-213 and the Winlink ARRL Radiogram are also permitted
     - All copies of your formal messages must be included with your Field Day report to get credit 
2 - Send a formal RF message during Field Day to either the the ARRL Section Manager, Joe Speroni (AH0A) or to Section Emergency Coordinator, Clem Jung (KH7HO), for 100 points (can send to both but total points will still be 100); does not count towards the total of 10 formal reports mentioned above for this bonus: 
     - Use the Winlink Radiogram to send your formal message (Paul Bourque did say can also use the ICS-213 form)
     - Include in the message the following
          - Club Name (if working as a club)
          - Number of participants
          - Field Day location
          - Number of ARES operators involved with your station
     - Copy of your message must be included with your Field Day report to get credit

Looking forward to your formal messages either as KH7HO as the Section Emergency Coordinator and as ETO-HI for the Winlink Check-In form.

I have again attached the ETO Field Day instructions below.

Please give this email widest distribution.

Have fun on Field Day.

73,
Clem Jung 

          


2021 EMComm Training Organization (ETO) Goes to Field Day

KH7HO Clem
 

To all,

The ETO is continuing with Winlink training and are encouraging Hams to submit a Winlink Check-In form during this coming Field Day, even if you will not participate in Field Day.

Many of you have submitted the Winlink Check-In form in the recent June 19, 2021 Makani Pahili Hurricane COMMEX so this should not be difficult.  You can send your report via VARA FM, VARA HF, Pactor, Packet, or Telnet and whether you use battery, generator or commercial power.

If you decide to participate, please send your Winlink Check-In to ETO-HI and to mapemcomm@... to see your call sign on the map.  Do not send any messages to KH7HO.

Please see the attachment below for further details.

Please give this email as much distribution as possible.

Have fun.

73,
Clem (ETO-HI)


ARRL Field Day 2021 - 6/25 thru 6/27

KH6WG Skawamae Kawamae
 

Aloha all,
Apologies for the late notice but I gave a heads up at the meeting.  

Please join us for Field Day 2021 at Kualoa Beach Park in a joint effort with the Koolau Amateur Radio Club.  The KARC has a permit from Friday 6/25 to Sunday 6/27.  We will NOT have the large EZ Corner we normally do, it will be a scaled down event.  If someone wants to camp overnight, PLMK and I'll put you in touch with the KARC.  Otherwise, we will be setting up 7a and tear down early evening so we can be packed up and out of the park by 8p.  The EARC will be using its Kenwood TS590-SG and the EARCHI End Fed antenna.  Hey, it's all about portable operations.  We will have a couple of pop up style tents.  We will also have hotdogs and chips for lunch but please bring a potluck item to share.  Bring your own chair and table if you need it.  We hope to see you there!

Aloha & 73
