The calendar of events for 2018 has been updated. Check it out for upcoming events in Maui, Hawaii, and across the nation. http://www.kh6rs.com/events.html
Reminder, our next club meeting is this Wednesday at the EOC.
A huge mahalo to a fellow club member Brett VR2BG (pictured above operating from the MARC Field Day location at Ho'okipa Point) for compiling and researching this history of Field Day results for the Maui Amateur Radio Club. Our club was established in 1936 and records indicate participation in the event dates back to 1939. See the attached document below for the complete list of results.
Here is everything you need to know to get on the air and participate in Hawaii's QSO Party. Scroll through the presentation above and contact us if you have any questions.
The KH6RS beacon, part of the IARU Beacon network is finally on the air at Club President, Tom's QTH. You can find information about the network at:
It will take a while for all the software and websites to get updated with our club call sign, but we are on the air every 3 minutes on 14.100, 18.110, 21.150, 24.930 and 28.200
Kevin, K6TD, came to the meeting to talk about the beacon program. He discusses the technical specifications, how the program is setup, and a rare look into the history of the beacons as well. Big mahalo to Kevin for taking the time to share his knowledge with us.
Take a moment to view some clips from the discussion below.
Kevin was first licensed in 1970. Work, kids and family life took Kevin away from radio, returning in 1988. After having worked as an EE for several Silicon Valley high tech companies, he now finds HF contesting and DXing a pleasant diversion. He has operated mostly in W6 land, but, has been heard from KH6 and BV1. DXpeditions include Midway and Mozambique. He helped with antennas for Wake.
Kevin has served as the chairman of the California QSO Party and as a director of the NCCC. He has co-chaired IDXC for 2011, 2013, and will for 2015.He's also a member of NCDXF, MLDXCC, and PAARA, and a life member of ARRL, charter member of CWOPS, and lastly SOC.
