To all,

In case you did not get this announcement, please participate by using the Local Weather Report in the Winlink template.  Learn how to use another template in the Winlink standard template list.  Please see the attachment below for further details.  

You have until 11:59 p.m., Thursday, August 5, 2021 to submit you message.

Please send your message to ETO-HI and not to KH7HO.

These ETO weekly Winlink Thursday Exercises are put out by the EMCOMM Training Organization (ETO) formally called the ARC group, if you had participated in last year's drills.  The purpose is to encourage the use of Winlink in EMCOMM situations and to prepared for the twice a year nation wide drills.  Winlink is becoming the digital communication of choice for EMCOMM throughout the U.S.

If you are not yet using Winlink or want to learn more about Winlink, see the following for additional information and training:
https://hawaiiares.net - click on the Training tab at the top and scroll down to SDG ARES Winlink Express Video and also click on the Resources tab and click on the Winlink Workshops.

- winlink.org - go to Select a page, go to Book of Knowledge, click on Watch the K4REF video tutorials.  You can also click on Download and install Winlink Express.  It is free but there will be a window that will pop up every so often to ask for your donation.  It is worth to donate the small amount that is ask.  Download the Winlink Express and learn to use the Telnet mode.  It is just using internet and not the VARA FM or VARA HF, packet, etc.  If you want to move up to VARA FM, you can.  It is free in the narrow but if you want to transmit your messages faster via RF mode, you will need to purchase the VARA license which is $35.00 (a discount from $70.00) and is a one time purchase for both VARA FM and VARA HF.  If interested, send an email to me.  VARA FM is very fast with the VARA license!  You can send attachments, pictures and the Winlink templates just like in email.

- support@... - if you have any questions or problems using Winlink, VARA FM, etc. there is a team of four subject matter experts in Hawaii that can help you.

There is so much that can be done via Winlink.  Try it out and especially, have fun.

Please give this email maximum distribution.

Welcome to August where the weather is as unpredictable as ever.
This week we use a Winlink form to report our local weather as you see it.
There is no right versus wrong for this exercise, just an opportunity to use another form from the Winlink Express Standard Templates.
Of course, if you are actually having a weather event that requires emergency communications, don't use email (Winlink or any other).
Have a clear day.

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

Hawaiian Islands Grid Madness 2021

A VHF/UHF Simplex Event

Sunday, September 19th from 1300 to 1700 HST


 



Put it on your calendar!

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 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
