Hawaii QSO Party
KH6FHI Joe Tabrah
Please participate in the Hawaii QSO Party if at all possible! It is great fun, helps us improve our station capacity, and helps keep Hawaii on the map as an active area for Ham radio.

Please save the dates: Aug 22-24 for the Hawaii QSO Party
The HQP will run from 0400Z 22 August
to 0359Z 24 August. Work as many stations on as many bands and modes
as you can.
complaint I heard last year was “Where were all the Hawaii
stations?” We really need YOU to get on the air and make some
QSOs. This is our one big HF event of the year and there will be a
LOT of folks out there looking for HI. This event will be active for
48 hours, but no one has to be active the whole time. Think of it as
a 48 hour window of opportunity. Play radio as much as you like
during those hours. Make one QSO, two QSOs, 10, 100, 1,000 ..
whatever. Just get active!
A map of the Hawaii multipliers can be
found here: https://www.hawaiiqsoparty.org/mult-map/
While most QSO parties use their counties as multipliers, here in Hawaii we only have five counties so we've expanded the multiplier list to use “districts” instead .. roughly following the ancient Moku.
All digital modes (RTTY, FT8, FT4, PSK,
whatever) are considered “digital” so there are three modes to
use: CW, Phone, Digital.
Hopefully, the WX will cooperate and
we'll have some excellent conditions.
Please contact me directly if you have
any questions or suggestions.
Also, please let other hams know about this Party. My list of hams with HF ability is quite limited.
