+ ARES MAKANI INO JULY 16 EXERCISE - Many Hawaii hams participated in this drill to prepare and practice using amateur radio to send messages via voice and Winlink during a catastrophic hurricane when normal communications have failed. &nbdp; We learned a lot and practiced passing Winlink Hurricane Reports, Check Ins, Check Outs, Field Situation Report, Damage Reports, Request for Assistance and Shelter Reports.

If you would like to participate, email Tad Miura and he will email you the Zoom link.

Kauai ham operators got together to enjoy Field Day. &nbdp; A great time was had by all.
