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

QSL direct, LoTW, eQSL, or QRZ.com. I upload my log regularly. SASE appreciated from U.S. hams. IRC/$ not absolutely required from DX stations. QSLs are still a fun part of amateur radio and you can expect a quick reply to your card.

QSL Bureau is very slow and not preferred. If you would like or need a QSL card to confirm Hawai'i, I recommend you send direct. I do make strong effort reply to bureau cards promptly, but be prepared to wait before you receive my reply QSL.

 

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.

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.
