Field Day 2019 - by KH6IN

Field Day was this past weekend (June 22 to 23). The EARC and KARC got together as in past years at Kualoa Regional Park and had a great time. Each Club set up one transmitter each as KH6CE and KH6J with each having an amp 500 and 700 watts, while band conditions were not the best many new hams got to get on the air and made some contacts.

Despite the bands being low about 75 people came out Saturday and enjoyed eyeball QSO's showing some of their interesting projects and sharing radio fun. Stacy KH6OWL and another ham (who's name I did not get) came out, set up and demonstrated Satellite communications, there was also a ARRL testing session coordinated by Joe AH0A, 11 people showed up for testing which resulted in some new technicians and a few upgrades, Harold Buckle KH6HB from our local Oahu DEM came out and spent the day as well.

The two clubs provided drinks and food for lunch and for those camping over the two nights, Wayne KH6IN, Mei KH6MG, William KH6MEI and Steve KH6WG brought out a full kitchen and cooked up some great meals, of course eveyone was holding out for Steve's chow fun for dinner on Saturday, Steve says the secret is in the sauce LOL.

Heather WH6FTQ borrowed a telescope from her work place, the Univerity of Hawaii's Institute for Astronomy. She and Sidik WH6FUS brought it out Saturday night, the night was clear enough and treated us to some stargazing with the help of Steve KH6WG helping to align the scope and it was neat (yes, I'm going there) to see some interesting antennas for VHF UHF including something I haven't seen in years with Garret WH6GL using a set of tv rabbit ears as an antenna, nice to see the experimentation.

A big mahalo to everyone who came out for field day and especially those who came out for the setup and breakdown on Friday and Sunday as well as to those who stayed overnight. it was a great time for all!

DMR Brandmeister info

The Club purchased two Motorola SLR5700 DMR repeaters and now the ARRL Section manager is giving DMR repeaters to other hams off island, contact him and maybe you can get one to for your area. The first of these two repeaters was installed on May 5th, 2018 at our Maunakapu site replacing the Analog UHF repeater there on 444.100.

Since turning it on there has been quite a bit of activity from users and we are happy to see it going so well. Click here to the repeaters section where you find a link describing the setup and talkgroups for this repeater.

There is plans to install second repeater on 444.500 in town, coming around the end of September.
