​Aloha from Honolulu, Hawai'i on the island of O'ahu!

Nagaoka Fireworks over Waikiki-Honolulu Festival March 13, 2016

 

 QSL via LoTW, direct, eQSL, Club Log (OQRS), QRZ.com, or bureau.

LoTW is the fastest and easiest if you do not want a paper card. I upload my log regularly.

If you choose to QSL direct, a self addressed envelope is appreciated. Stamp/IRC/$ not required for U.S., DX stations, or SWL reports. I will pay return postage.

QSL cards are still a fun part of amateur radio and you can expect a prompt reply to your card.

QSL via Bureau is slow and not preferred. I do make a strong effort reply to bureau cards, but be prepared to wait.

I can also QSL via Online QSL Request (OQRS) through ClubLog.

 

JAアマチュア無線仲間の皆様へ

私はこの2年間で1000以上のJA(JARL) のQSLに返信をしてまいりました。多くのカードは、コンテスト後、自動的にコンピュータにて作成されている様です。全てのカードに返信する努力を続けてきましたが、大変な時間がかかってしまいます。そこで、申し訳ありませんが、あなたがDX局で返信を望まれるなら、あなたのQSLを直接私のQRZ.comアドレスへ送って頂けませんでしょうか。お金やIRCは送って頂かなくて結構ですが、返信先の住所と宛名を書いた封筒を同封していただければ幸いです。返信用の切手はこちらで用意させて頂きますし、直接送られてきたQSLは、受け取った48時間以内に返信させていただきますJA局から送られてきた手書きのQSLにはこれまで通り返信させていただきますが、コンピューターにて自動作成されたQSLには返信を控えさせていただこうと思いますので、どうぞご了承ください。

 

 

If never seen, please consider a visit to the DX Code of Conduct website. Worth the time and quick read. Every sport/hobby has etiquette. Sportsmanship and integrity do matter.

***Initiation into Astrophotography***

Just getting started in astrophotography. First attempt at well known and one of the most imaged targets, the Orion Nebula (M42). This image is a result of 10-thirty second exposures at ISO 1600, 15 darks frames and 15 bias frames with an unmodified Canon 5DMkII. Telescope is an Astro-Physics 105mm Traveler f/6 on AP Mach1 GTO mount guided with PHD2. The 40 images were stacked and processed (very basically) in PixInsight. More to come......

 

**Images from Hawaii**

Diamond Head/Waikiki Panorama--distorted view.

Honolulu-Waikiki city lights.

King Kamehameha I (in front of Ali'iolani Hale). This photo is a few days after Kamehameha Day (11 June) so there are lots of leis draped over the statue. Kamehameha I is also known as Kamehameha the Great and is credited with the unification of the Hawaiian Islands. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamehameha_I

 

The Duke Kahanamoku statue in Waikiki. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_Kahanamoku

 

Previous "retro" QSL card.

 

Panoramic view from Diamond Head Lookout (distorted as you can see East to West and illusion that center of the island is narrow--it is not.)

 

Another view from Diamond Head Lookout.

 

It was a wetter than usual summer 2014--> Diamond Head is usually brown until winter rainy season. HDR (high dynamic range) photo.

 

Cool retro HDR photo of Diamond Head from Tantalus Lookout (Pu'u 'Ualaka'a State Park).

 

Late afternoon.

 

10 minutes after sunset. Original unretouched photo.

 

HDR image of Honolulu as sun rising.

 
HDR sunset.
 

 

Mobile near Sandy Beach, O'ahu.

 

Hawaiian monk seal sunning on the beach in Waikiki. Life is good in Hawai'i. Not a bad way to spend the day. Note that the monk seal is endangered. More at this linkhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaiian_monk_seal.

 

Passing morning shower with frequently seen rainbow.

 

The largest swell in a decade arrived from a storm below New Zealand and hit south shores of the Hawaiian Islands August 30, 2011. Waikiki almost looked like the North Shore in Winter.

 

Another awesome summer swell from 2009. Wanted to surf that day, but had accepted offer to go out sailing. Leaving the Ala Wai Boat Harbor, we all knew that getting back in was going to be a trick. That is me, second from the left, heading to the back of the catamaran to keep the hull from "pearling" (and secretly to consider options to bail out). We made it without incident but numerous photos made their way around the internet/print media including Surfer Magazine. I suspect the face of the wave was about 12-15 feet. How did I get this photo? When the waves are good, there are many photographers both in the water and on land. The surf community is fairly well connected so it was not difficult to get numerous photos including video. As far I know, it was not our intent to catch a wave into the harbor!

 

First attempt at a sunset panorama of Honolulu. Needs some work but not bad without tripod and exposure on AUTO.

 

iPhone panorama at 'Ehukai Beach Park on North Shore of O'ahu. Photo is looking directly out at the "Banzai Pipeline". The beach is linear--the image is distorted. Wind was onshore with a building swell. Not too many surfers out due to poor conditions. Still was a beautiful winter day in Hawai'i.

 

Portion of double rainbow over Diamondhead.

 

Interesting lighting, clouds, and ocean conditions with another morning shower.

 

Moonrise over Diamondhead.
