To all,

The annual Makani Pahili “Simulated Hurricane” Net will be held Sunday, June 2, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

The purpose of the net is to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season and test the NWS Ham station, KH6SW.

We will be on the following DEM and State RACES repeaters as well as HF for voice and FLDigi for real world weather messages.  Please give your call sign, name, SKYWARN ID number (if you have one).  Keep  messages short with a few words.

We encourage those operators who can to send a Winlink report, please use the Hurricane Report template and include the word SIMULATED in the message.  For this exercise, please address your Winlink message to ah6qo@...

We can take 
  • "Real World Fair Weather Report" and 
  • "Simulated Severe Weather Report" 
for practice. 
  •  If you are giving a "Real World Weather Report" you can report it as where you are calling from, for example, "I’m in Kaimuki and it is sunny and 80 degrees."  Please keep it short.
  • You can simulate a "Severe Weather Report" using the criteria given by NWS Skywarn. https://www.weather.gov/hfo/skywarn

Skywarn will be focusing on the use of "metrics" and "impacts" in reporting.  For example, if you are reporting Heavy Rain, please report your measured rain rate such as 
".45 inches for fifteen minutes at 0945 HST in Hahaione Valley and continues."  This report indicates a rain rate that meets the criteria of one inch per hour. Indicate impacts, especially if you cannot measure it, for example, "ponding covering road at Keahole and Hawaii Kai Drive."

Please review criteria at https://www.weather.gov/hfo/skywarn

You can use one or all the following repeaters to call and/or send your FLDigi message:
- 146.760 no pl (Peacock Flat)
- 146.860 pl 88.5 (Maunakapu)
- 146.880 pl 88.5 (Diamond Head)
- 146.980 pl 88.5 (Downtown Honolulu)
- 146.680 pl 88.5 (Waimanalo Ridge)
- 444.350 pl 103.5 (Diamond Head, if linked in)
Also on:
- HF:  7.080 USB for voice & Fldigi

We encourage all licensed Amateur radio operator, whether you are a SKYWARN weather spotter or not, to participate.

Skywarn NCSs, if you wish to be at the NWS HFO Skywarn station to participate, 0800-1200 HST, June 2, 2019, please let me (AH6QO) know since the area can become cramped. The HF system has been worked on and improved. Parking is free.  0800 HST for prep, 0900 HST start.

Request widest distribution of this email.

Hi Hawaii Hams,

I am looking for people interested in finding out more about Amateur Radio High Frequency Contesting. I help maintain and manage one of the preeminent HF stations in Hawaii, KH6YY, which is the personal station of Alex, KH6YY. A group of us regularly participate in several radio contests each year in different categories, mostly Multiple Transmitter - Multiple Operator (aka mulit-multi) and Mult-Two, and lastly Multi-Single. Single Operator- Single Band efforts are sometimes done with individuals doing their own band at the same time from the station under their own call signs.

Next weekend a major worldwide contest known as CQ WPX CW is being held. I am open to host people interested in finding out more about worldwide HF radio contesting next Saturday, May 25. Likely mid-morning to lunch time or thereafter.

If you want to know more about this aspect of the hobby that can help you to learn technical skills and become a better operator, please let me know and join me and Doug, KH6U,  for a demonstration.

It is an International Morse Code contest but the principles are the same with a few differences. We shall make some contacts to show how it is done. If you know Morse Code it is a plus but not necessary for this demonstration.

Contact me by email ASAP. Space may be limited. The details will be forwarded later. Alex's home and station is on the North Shore above Waimea Bay, aka Pupukea. Even if you aren't sure but have questions please contact me anyway. Younger people are also welcome (preferably in middle school or older so they might understand things better).

73, Kimo Chun  KH7U
