Aloha, Please share with as many people as possible.

To recap for the Go Kit challenge on Saturday.

Bring what you need; table, chair, water, food, etc. You are practicing deploying with your kit. I won't be setting up tents, tables, chairs, you should plan on being self-sufficient.

Hope to see you at the event. Come learn, share knowledge, get to know each other.

What is a go Kit? Well it is what ever you use to get on the air in the event of an emergency, but most people say it is portable. So that can be a hand held with extra batteries or a way to charge the batteries. A better antenna than a rubber duck is preferred but on an Island may not be necessary. It does not have to be HF capable but that would be good.

Your go kit can be in your vehicle or a portable set up.

Come out to check out what others have done for Go Kits, get ideas, talk about what worked and what didn't, where they got the parts to build it or where did they buy it from. Ask for help or just get ideas.

Show off your vehicle installation and antennas!

Should be a fun and educational event.

Prizes maybe included for best kits.
