25 June 2002 - All repeaters are up. Jim, KH6JKG writes, "Today I managed to get to Mauna Kapu in the PM. I installed one of the VHF Eng. that was tuned up for 146.20/146.80. The Motorola mobile didn't operate porperly. So, I will need to do more troubleshooting on this unit, time permitting."

13 June 2002 - 146.88 MHz repeater is back up. Jim, KH6JKG and Randy, AH6Q picked up the VHF repeater from the HFD radio shop and reinstalled it at Diamond Head. 

15 May 2002 - From Todd, KH7UK, "The 146.880 repeater is down due to very weak output signal. It sounds as if the power amplifier may have failed. Reports from Mike WH7T and Ray NH6RZ state that the repeater dropped out about 2100 Monday night. It was stated that this occurred about the time of the Makiki area power failure last night. Coincidence? Hard to say. Mike also brought up the possibility that rain got into the feedline, causing an increased SWR, causing the PA to shutdown. Whatever the case, I disabled the VHF side transmitter in case the PA is still trying to run full power into high SWR. When I tested it, transmit power was very low, similar to the Y2K failure when the PA of that machine failed and the exciter transmitted barely to the Makiki area. The UHF repeater 444.500+ is up and operating normally to the best of my knowledge. I may enable VHF receive only, so in case someone calls on VHF, at least people listening to UHF can hear them."

10 May 2002 - Net on Olomana and Diamond Head repeaters on Saturday, 11 May 2002  about 1330W to 1430W in support of the OCDA District 4 Hub Shelter Comm Test. Coordinator is Clem Jung, KH7HO.

19 April 2002 - AH6QO DE KH6JKG: Please change D449.150-  to: U449.15- (in green.) Todd, did a great job on balancing the audio. ID's, UHF, VHF. Plus adding more labels. So, If there is ever a need to change or upgrade the controller, the process is less time consuming.

19 April 2002 - Net on 688 on Saturday, 20 April 2002 about 0630W to 0930W in support of the March of Dimes WalkAmerica. Coordinator is Wayne Jones, NH6K.
