It’s renewal season again! (Sorry for the delay)

WH7GG Keith Higa
 

CQ CQ EARC!

It’s a new year, and time to renew your EARC membership if you didn’t already do so last year. Dues are the same low price that it’s been: 20 green stamps ($20.00).

For those who have sent in renewal membership forms this month and noticed the absence of a PayPal option on our response email, we apologize for that...we had to re-do and re-open our PayPal account. I’m pleased to report that the new PayPal account is now live, and you can send your dues to treasurer@... via PayPal.

(This is also why we delayed our usual begin-the-year membership drive. To the 37 or so members who have renewed in advance, thanks!)

Of course, the old fashioned way still works, and you can mail them to our PO Box 30315, Honolulu, HI 96820, or give it directly to me at any EARC general membership meeting. I will be there with receipt book in hand. 

If you have any questions on your membership status, I would be more than happy to check for you; just ask. 

As always, thank you for your support of the Emergency Amateur Radio Club and our mission to advance amateur radio in the islands.

Mahalo and 73,

Keith Higa
Treasurer/Membership Chair

KH6WG Skawamae Kawamae
 

All,
There is a new DMR repeater configured but not yet online in the Kaneohe Bay Area.  The repeater belongs to the HEARDn group, information as follows:

Frequency Details

TX442.6500 MHz
RX447.6500 MHz
Shift5.000 MHz
CC1

Give it a show when it gets online, date TBD.

Aloha,
de KH6WG


Dis n Dat

KH6WG Skawamae Kawamae
 

EARC All,
Apparently, I failed to notify all that the 146.880 Diamond Head is Hard Down until further notice.  There is a problem with damage to the feed line so the repeater has been shut down.

Saturday afternoon, each of the DEM repeaters were in stand alone mode.  There seems to be a problem with the IP Network.  

Thanks for your patience.

Aloha,
de KH6WG


Tonight’s PACSECARES Net is Cancelled

KH7HO Clem
 

To all,

The DEM and State RACES repeaters used for the weekly Sunday 8 p.m. PACSECARES Net are stand alone and are not linked. Therefore, tonight’s net is cancelled. Hopefully, the links will be repaired by tomorrow.

Please give this announcement widest distribution.

For those interested in DMR but haven't quite made the plunge into a DMR radio yet, I've linked into Maunakapu and Olomana a DMR bridge on hawaii 1 statewide talkgroup 3115 into the analog repeaters.  This will be active throughout today if you like to try it out.

So we are going to have people on DMR without their DMR ID?

Steve,

I'm on Oahu until Friday morning and had a real struggle finding anyone on the two FM satellites, AO-91 or AO-92.      I know it's a strugle to work the mainland but one guy ytesterday worked Florida with a SSB satellite.      There are 10 grids here in the island and I have worked one.    I emailed your ARRL SM but got no response from him.    

The question is: Do you know of anyone who can give me a grid or two tomorrow during a couple of the passes for 91/92 only?


Thank you and again I'm sorry for the short notice.

Honolulu Marathon 2018

AH6OO R Ueoka
 

Please excuse this email sent to everyone as we have a not received a updated list of ham radio volunteers for the Honolulu Marathon.

To all Marathon communications volunteers:

The Honolulu Marathon is this Sunday December 9, 2018.  Race start time is 5:00am.  There is usually a roll call of ham operators beginning at 4:30am for aid stations 1, 2 and 3.  Net control will usually poll each aid station before race start.  For those reporting to their aid station at a later time, please call in to net control to let them know you are on station.  
In lieu of further information from Greg, please see that attached marathon program from last year.  This contains our operating frequencies, and instructions for aid station and support van volunteers.  Please read through the program to familiarize yourself with our "job" for the day.  Since the medical team captain has their own radio device/cell phone we normally are "backup" communications to this.  We have however had instances where they could not find it, or they didn't know how to work it, or the battery died before the race was finished.  So our role can change in an instant.   Due to HIPAA restrictions, we are discouraged from giving certain personally identifiable information over the air. 

Also attached are the 2018 traffic advisory and course map.  You are also encouraged to visit the marathon site www.honolulumarathon.org and learn about the race as we do get questions from the race participants.

Our marathon ham coordinator, Greg Amancio, NH6ZS usually has a race packet pickup on Saturday morning between 9:30am and 1:00pm at the Kapiolani park.  This usually included a marathon volunteer shirt, cap, and ID tag.  Hopefully he will announce this soon.  Please wait for confirmation from Greg as to when and where packet pickup will be this year.  Greg's email is honu1@....

Also just a friendly reminder that while we normally identify our aid stations and support vans by using tactical call signs such as "Aid Station 1" or "Support Van 1" or "Main Medical",  we are still required to identify with our FCC assigned call sign every 10 minutes.

Since there is no time limit for this marathon, some of the aid stations can expect to be there after 3pm until 5pm or even later.  

Thank you to all who volunteered for this large event.  It can be a fun, busy and rewarding experience and there is a lot of interaction with people.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  Those of us who have volunteered before are standing by to answer them.


Aloha and 73,

Ryan AH6OO
