[R3-dcom] ARRL sends emcomm kits to Hawaii


ARRL sends emcomm kits to Hawaii

The drama and concern about the volcanic lava in Hawaii continues, although
it seems for the time being the flow has not recently advanced.

Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) volunteers are ready and trained to
assist the community with communications in the slow moving lava disaster
on the Big Island of Hawaii.

It may last for some time. Officials attribute that lack of activity as common
for lava, which can stop and then move in another direction.

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) has sent its Ham Aid Kits to Hawaii
should they be needed. ARRL Pacific Section Manager Bob Schneider AH6J, doesn?t
believe an ARES activation is imminent, but with unpredictable lava flow
things can change rapidly.

ARRL Emergency Preparedness Manager Mike Corey KI1U, described the kits as
having a HF transceiver, tuner and dipole, plus a VHF/UHF gear.

he Ham Aid kits can add capacity during a disaster or emergency response.

Meantime the lava flow has resulted in nervous rural communities where it
was moving at almost 275 metres a day earlier.

- Jim Linton VK3PC, Chairman IARU Region 3 Disaster Communications Committee.
