The 2012 HQP rankings are now available on the contest web
site at www.HawaiiQSOParty.org. We want to thank all who participated by
operating and submitted logs. Please
review the rankings and report any errors to awards at HawaiiQSOParty.org.
Overall Hawaii stations logs reported 30% more QSOs than
last year – around 19,500 this year vs. 14,800 last year. The Hawaii superstations showed the same
increase with KH6LC leading the way with just over 6,700 contacts. Lloyd’s group was heard everywhere on most
bands and was responsible filling out 5-band WAS for several stations. Take a look at the KH6LC web site http://www.kh6lc.com to see why! Besides contesting Lloyd uses the station to
promote Amateur radio with youth. KH6LC
is active on the ARRL Kids’ day every year.
The EARC club in Honolulu had 50% more contacts this year
and continues to promote HF activity among in members. Again they had more than 20 active operators
with more hanging in the back ground learning about HF and contesting. Good job guys!
The Battleship Missouri fielded two stations with an active
CW operation this year. KB6BB continues
to be a draw for the contest as welcome tourist stop for visiting hams. Check out their web site www.kh6bb.org to see a unique ham operating
environment. The station is supported by
local hams that meet once a week on Tuesdays to operate and maintain
The Ko’olau Amateur Radio Club (KH6J) did more with less
this year. Four operators almost doubled
their QSO totals to 2000 while operating only about 20 hours this year. The secret – three stations on six towers
at the KH6YY superstation. See http://www.kh6yy.net/ for unbelievable photos.
Thanks to Ted (NH7YK) and Max (KH6ZM) for making Volcano
Park active again this year. From
another rare multiplier, Merv (K9FD) was a CW only entry again this year from the
Molokai. Jamie (K7TAB) also on Molokai operated
mixed mode. Thanks guys!
There was more digital activity with seven digital only logs
with about 300 reported digital QSOs. We even had a JT65 contact reported and
requests to recognize other digital modes.
There is increased interest in
these new modes among hams worldwide.
We already have a few stories from stations that will be
published to the contest web site and contest Facebook page – www.facebook.com/HawaiiQSOParty
. If you have comments or short stories
to add please post them to Facebook or drop us an email at awards at HawaiiQSOParty.org.
