Aloha and welcome to the Saturday Breakfast Page.
It has become a tradition with many Amateur Radio Clubs to have an impromptu gathering at a local restaurant on Saturday mornings. Some of the members of the Kauai Amateur Radio Club began this tradition in 2004 by meeting at the Tip Top Restaurant in Lihue. In a very short time the group reached a size that didn’t quite fit into the booths at Tip Top, so the gathering was moved to the Wailua Family Restaurant, just north of the old Coco Palms hotel. Sadly, after many years, the owner retired and closed the restaurant. We have another restaurant with our own table and plenty of room to accommodate a group of twenty or more with a friendly relaxing atmosphere. Check the Aloha page (Home page) for the name of the restaurant, street address and directions.
Every Saturday you will find a group of local hams “talking story” and sharing their experiences. Discussions run from Ham Radio operation, emergency communications, DXing, contests, computers, repeaters, sailing, flying and any number of other topics. Our numbers vary from as few as four to as many as twenty. Like Forrest Gump says, “Life’s like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re going to get.”
There is no membership, no dues and no license requirement. Anyone with an interest in radio is welcome to join us. The gathering starts after 7:30 a.m. and goes for as long as the discussions last. Some people arrive early and some arrive on Hawaiian Time (late). All you need to do is monitor 146.92 MHz and 146.52 MHz between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. and you will hear the group mobiling to the restaurant. Feel free to join in and we can talk you into the parking lot. Come join us! 73 and Aloha.
