Hi Gary,
I used NH7/N1YU a week before WRTC event as I was informed by QST that it was
legal prefix for Hawaii but many of your countrymen did NOT know that!
Fortunately, it was outside of contests so I don't qualify for a jerk :-)
Incidentaly, I miss your portable area number in many contests, including RTTY!
73 to K0LUZ de Mario, S56A, N1YU.

That is EXACTLY my point.  I have no idea why  W2CE,
and KL7HF  have made such a big issue of this.  And now
W2CE has alerted the FCC,  who will now probably launch
a time and money wasting investigation of the club.  Seems
nuts to me.

KH6AFS is one of the FEW pure Hawaiian radio amateurs;
he certainly deserves to have AL0AH as a fun (vanity) call
if anyone does.  KH6AFS is one of a very few Hawaiian
language speakers; only a hand full now living. His knowledge 
of the language is sought regularly by  the professors at the
University of Hawaii!!

BTW,  Sam also taught CW at Pearl Harbor during WWII.
This was after he operated heavy equipment helping to
build bases thru the South Pacific right after Pearl Harbor.
Then they discovered he was a whiz on CW.  He was a
great friend of Nose,  tho didn't see each other that often,
as Sam's home is on Hawaii,  and Nose was on Kauai and
then on Oahu later in his life.

Sam  holds only a General ticket,  but you should hear his
35 - 40 wpm bug-sent CW!  He usually only operates on
40 CW;  what a BIG V-Beam he has for that band!  He says
he has no reason to upgrade.  He has worked the world over
a couple of times in his 60 years as an amateur.

Oh well,  dare I say Aloha to all from Kauai,

73,  Jim, KH7M

So what is the problem,  Bob.  Sam, KH6AFS,  owns the property
on Ross up there,  visits it regularly and has received the club
license via the US Postal System.  Sounds as if all is just fine to
me,  if the above is the only possible problem with the club
license of which KH6B is the trustee.

Hope you are quite pleased with your actions about this issue.

73,  Jim, KH7M

Spike, you chose to make your comments to just a few individuals very 
public ... appears that you want to in someway hold them up to public
ridicule, so I'll do the same with you.  Most will agree with me and    
take satisfaction in what I have to say.

Your message content demonstrates that you already don't care what others
think of you, but I still gotta tell ya ... your foul "mouth" isn't welcome 
here ... you've only demonstrated how little "class" you have.

Your comments were directed to only a few ... why offend others?  Guess
you're like a dog ... gotta leave your smell at every available spot.
