Operating in Hawaii

I’ve been in Hawaii for the last two weeks. I operated QRP with a wire antenna on several occasions.

This is the cottage we stayed at during the first week. There are lots of pictures, but it’s pretty long to post here. To read it, please go to my web page at http://www.w1pid.com/hawaii/hawaii.html

Happy New Year, Jim W1PID

    Hey, Jim – I’ve heard/read that over just about all of the islands, you can count on a thundershower rolling though about the same time every afternoon. I am told this is what makes the islands so lush with plant life. Are you finding this to be the case?

    73 and Happy New Year!

  • Bill- Molokai is a small island but has several micro-climates. Rain forest
    at high elevations on the east end. Dry range (like Wyoming) on the west. The
    east end gets more rain than the west. Rain in the winter, but not much at all
    in the summer. Odd place. Move a few miles and the weather changes. 73 Jim W1PID
