From the February 2018 Big Island Amateur Radio Club Newsletter.

Everyone is invited to HPP Radio Day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 28 at the Hawaiian Paradise Park community center at 17th and Makuu.

“We want to let everyone know that the event is open to all hams, especially the newest ham operators,” said coordinator Mike Stratton, KH6PAC. “Our plan is to have several different radios set up,” said Mike. There will be lots of activities and demonstrations. Among the participants thus far: the HPP Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), the HPP Emergency Radio Team, folks from ARES, the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, and the Puna Emergency Radio Club, and various others.

“K0BAD has stated he will do a digital radio setup, KH6SF will do packet, WH6LU will do DX,” said Mike.

“We will also have a 2meter set up, and are hoping to have someone doing CW and HF.”

Setup will start at 8 a.m., with teardown scheduled around 4 p.m. All are welcome. For more details, email Mike at
