Successful radio contacts are eligible to receive a special inscribed certificate bearing the full-color rendition of K6K: King Kamehameha Celebration.

For many, it was their first time to contact Hawaii over the Radio. If you contacted our Special Event Station, look up your call sign on the following link and print your own certificate:

Kainoa Danes, chairman of the King Kamehameha Celebration Commission said:

“I understand this served as a dual-purpose event of being part of the 149th Celebration and also giving local trained amateur radio volunteers a chance showcase their talents in our remote location of the Hawaiian Islands to communicate around the world.” He added, "It was fascinating to learn about Winlink radio email with no internet needed. It’s nice to know they can be called on in times of crisis or disaster.”
