This weekend is the Hawaii QSO Party, an event to promote HF operation from the unique destination in the Pacific. Hawaii is an ARRL DXCC entity as well as the nation’s 50th state needed for the ARRL WAS Award.

The event runs from 0400Z, Aug 26 to 0400Z, Aug 28 and is the last best chance you will have to work the island this year. I’ve worked Hawaii plenty of times on multiple modes and bands, but I still need Hawaii for WAS on FT8 and plan to stay in the fray until I have a half-dozen or so stations in the log with hopes that at least one of them uses LoTW.

Complete details here. See you in the waterfall.
