Surfin’: Hammin’ in Hawaii
By Stan Horzepa, WA1LOU
This week, Surfin’ revisits a website all about ham radio in the Aloha State.
“Hamming in Hawaii” was the title of the fourth installment of Surfin’ back in January 2001. In that installment, I wrote about the website of Ron Hashiro, AH6RH.
Ten years later, I am writing about Ron’s site again because it is rare that a personal website has much longevity, and 10 years-plus certainly qualifies as longevity in the lightning-paced world of the Internet. Beyond that, Ron’s site has grown exponentially during the decade and offers lots of information regarding ham radio in our 50th state.
Ron has a web page dedicated the effects on Hawaii of the Tohoku-Sendai earthquake and tsunami in March. Related is a list of pages for alerts and monitoring for Oahu and Hawaii during emergencies and a list of incidents on Oahu that could elevate to emergency conditions.
The website also has lots of information (too numerous to mention; refer to the links in the left hand sidebar) about ham radio operating in Hawaii, as well as a page near and dear to my heart: using a Mac in ham radio.
If you visit AH6RH’s website, you will not be disappointed.
Until next time, keep on surfin’!
