About the Ohana Net

The "Ohana" net is on 14.268 MHz at 1630 UTC weekday mornings and then they QSY to 14.307 - same time slot - on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The Net starts at 1630 UTC. About thirty minutes before the Net you can find members milling about, saying hello and catching up on what's new.

While the Net is structured just enough to recognize everyone, it is not excessively so and that gives it a warm and relaxing glow. It's a fun net to get into and stretch you signal legs - check out propagation and how your station is doing out to the islands (or into the mainland if you live in those warm and amazing waters of the Pacific Ocean). You won't be required to do anything other than to be part of their family. No suit or tie is necessary. Scuba gear, sun tan lotion, leis and woven hats are okay but might raise some eyebrows with the relatives if you hail from cooler climates.

Ben, KH6LJ is in Oahu, Hawaii, North Shore, and is known as the manager, founder and chairman of the Net. And there are alternate net control operators who take the helm: Wayne, WH6OR in Maui; Tom, N0EV in Colorado; and Gene, WB7DBJ, on Whidbey Island, WA. A new and valuable operator joined the team in 2013 who is John, KE7LWW, in Everett, Washington; and, George, W9EVT, and other take the assignment when called upon. Each team member takes turns running the Net during the week and on weekends, and Ben can almost always be found every day and he takes the control seat on Saturdays.

Ohana in Hawaii means "family" and all are welcome to join in, share signal strengths, weather reports, and what is new in your life - and most importantly, to enjoy the comradery.

This page is a work in progress and I do this as a hobby. In no way do I represent the Ohana Net, but in every way I hope that if this page helps existing members or prospective members, that would be a very good thing. I started doing these kind of pages when I found that I could keep track of the Net from almost any device known to the technological world - my iPad was the biggest reason. If you have information you would like to share to help fill in the blanks above or to add your own station to the listing, please email W6BQZ@zebrahamradio.com and allow a few days for your information to be absorbed and posted. To summarize, this is not a formal web site just a hobby and hopefully will help to share information for all hams to use and enjoy.

The Intermittant & Unofficial Log

11/28/2014: Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. If you have 40 meter capabilities, check out the antenna testing and the DX this winter at 7.155 MHz. They are also selling these really cool focus light up stylus pens as a fund rasier which are perfect for your shack and working on equipment.

10/27/2014: For your viewing pleasure we have the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Webcams, live. They look like they snap a shot every half hour, or so, and have been around for quite some time. Take a peek at this URL: http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/cams/

Halemaʻumaʻu Overlook Vent Screen Cap

Here is a screen capture and is clickable to this live cam site. This is the Halemaʻumaʻu Overlook Vent Cam. This photo was taken exactly at 2014-10-27 02:54:58 (HST). These webcams are operational 24/7 and faithfully record the dark of night if there are no sources of incandescence or other lights. Thermal webcams record heat rather than light and get better views through volcanic gas.

I hope that everyone in the path remains in safety. Just a note of trivia: The flows have added approximately 500 acres in recent years!

8/24/2014: News was discussed regarding last nights Napa Valley 6.1 earthquake. John, AG6LJ, filled us in with the reports from various monitoring stations. Here is a link to earthquake information: earthquake.usgs.gov/monitoring - and a good 7 minute video.


8/15/2014: Congratulations to Javier, KG7ELE, who is the very first addition to the OhanaNet Online List via email. Welcome aboard! As you know, the Internet is a whole different animal compare to hard copy. It can be changed, modified, added to and then seen online in almost a moments notice. Well, sometimes it might take a few days, but who's counting. Take care and glad you are here. 73!

8/8/2014: Here is a WebCam from Hawaii. It is one of the few webcams that keep up their live stream (as opposed to the ones that have a still image taken either once a day or once a month). Here from the NorthWest side of the Big Island is the Live Hilton Waikoloa WebCam: Click Here ---- and from the south side of Kauai is their WebCam: Click Here

8-06-2014, Wednesday: Tuning in today I found, to my dismay, that tropical storms were threatening our guys over in the Hawaiian Islands. Videos show folks over there "storming" the shelves of Sam Club and other stockers of staples. Wayne, WH6OR, did tell us that the storms are losing steam at the rate of about 1 MPH each hour, so the good news is that they will not be of Hurricane Status, but they quite possibly can cause some amount of mischief. Let's keep our fingers crossed. For today, the signals up and down the states in the mainland were iffy and weak, but the signals from the islands stateside were very good. Into San Diego WH6OR came in about a plus 5, while George, W9EVT was drifting up and down from a 4-4 to a 5-5. Now, for the recent storm video:

Odds & Ends:

Every once in a while I see some pretty nice quotes, so I'll start by putting this one here from K7GDM, Dave:

"If you make people think they are thinking, they will love you. If you make people think, they will hate you."
