KH6JRM's Amateur Radio Blog

I spent the night at the radio station newsroom because
of a winter storm that threatened Hawaii Island.  For-
tunately, only minor flooding spoiled the night.  Mauna
Kea has a nice layer of snow and local residents can't
wait for the summit road to clear, so they can take home
some snow for a holiday snowman.  This is the only place
where you can gather snow and surf on a sun-blessed
beach all at the same time.  Since I was on news alert,
there wasn't much time to spend on amateur radio, other
than listening to 2-meters on the news room scanner.  I'll
remedy that situation once I close up the news room later
today.  At least, we got some much needed rain.  Have a
good weekend.  Aloha es 73 de KH6JRM.
