Ham Radio on the Big Island

April 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Ham Radio

Russell Roberts, a licensed amateur/ham radio operator, will discuss how Ham Radio serves our communities in Hawaii during times of natural and man-made disasters. When cell phone and internet services are lost, trained ham operators are ready to support emergency communications.

Learn how during times of power and general communication outage, Ham radio operators function as communication for the Hawaii County Civil Defense, the State of Hawaii, and our federal government. Mr. Roberts will also share how you can get involved in the Ham Radio Community and become a Ham radio operator.

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.
