Tiki's Grill & Bar helps donate $3,144.50 to Hawai'i Foodbank!


As Hawai'i continues to welcome back large gatherings and events, sometimes last-minute cancellations are unavoidable. This was the case for Procter & Gamble, who, unfortunately, had to cancel their corporate dinner just days before the event. Fortunately, for Hawaii Foodbank, Tiki's Grill & Bar, along with the help of Procter & Gamble, found a unique opportunity to give back. Although their deposit was non-refundable, Tiki's Grill & Bar offered the option to hold their credit towards a future date. Rather than choosing to receive the credit, Megan Adamson, of Procter & Gamble, shared, "We would really love to give back to the community and donate the credit to a local non-profit." Without hesitation, Tiki's Grill & Bar, Sales Manager, Jenni Liu, knew exactly which non-profit to suggest and through this partnership, a total of $3,144.50 was donated to Hawai'i Foodbank!

Resesio—a company that offers an automated optimization model for the construction design process, resulting in significant material and cost savings—won the second place prize, which includes $5,000 from HEI and Hawaiian Electric and $14,400 in in-kind prizes. Team members are UH Mānoa Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering PhD students Mohamed Sherif, Amr Ghanem and Mostafa Abdelhafeez. Sherif and Ghanem won the 2021 UH Breakthrough Innovation Challenge and a $5,000 prize for a company called Model-C, which is focused on infrastructure simulation and optimization technology.

The third place winner was the Ōfaga Leo Preschool System, which provides immersion language education in Hawaiʻi and the continental U.S. in areas where there is a high demand for childcare and preschool services in Samoan language. The third place prize totaled more than $10,000, including a $2,500 cash prize sponsored by HiBEAM in honor of pioneer Billy Richardson. Team members are John Patu, Jr., a PhD student in Hawaiian and Indigenous Language and Culture Revitalization at UH Hilo, and Carmelita T. Patu, a creative media student at Windward Community College.

These three teams reached the finals after beating out 25 other teams in two earlier rounds of competition.

“We are proud of all of the courageous teams that embarked on their entrepreneurial journey through the competition. We were pleased to see a diverse group of participants from six UH System campuses with startup ideas, ranging from geothermal energy to educational platforms to consumer products,” said PACE Executive Director Sandra Fujiyama. “This competition is not possible without the generous support of our sponsors, partners, and volunteers, for whom I am very grateful.”

“At HEI, we recognize the vital role entrepreneurs play in creating and maintaining a vibrant economy for our island state,” said Scott Seu, HEI president and CEO. “We applaud the innovative ideas and hard work of all the participants, and recognize the many mentors and professors who guided them along the way.”

In addition to cash prizes, each winning team will take home a carefully curated prize package of support services. Prize sponsors include Blue Logic Labs, HiBEAM, Hub Coworking Hawaiʻi, New Venture Pro, Pineapple Tweed and Vantage Counsel.

Outstanding student entrepreneur

Fujiyama also presented Madonna Castro Perez with PACE’s outstanding student entrepreneur of the year award for her exceptional contributions to entrepreneurial activities at the university and in the community. The law student was a member of the winning team in the 2020 competition. She has served as the vice chair of the Calvin Shindo Student Venture Fund since February 2021, leading a committee of 12 students to manage the venture finance process. She served as a civil rights advocate at the Legal Aid Society of Hawaiʻi and an intern at Blue Startups.

This program is an example of UH Mānoa’s goal of Enhancing Student Success (PDF) and Excellence in Research: Advancing the Research and Creative Work Enterprise (PDF), two of four goals identified in the 2015–25 Strategic Plan (PDF), updated in December 2020.

This is one of the 3 antennas used on our Holiday DX Peditions on Molokai, in the Hawaiian Islands. Stayed up for 7 days. Used for sending HF Winlink emails, FT-8 and SSB phone/voice contacts for both NVIS in the island and DX. This was great for switching bands and checking propagation very fast. I used more for 40m and 80m as the other antenna was Vertical I would switch on don't 10m, 20m, 15m. We hung it about 20 feet in the air. The center-hung from a ironwood tree and the to ends were hung around coconut trees. Using Bungee Cords and 8" Canopy/Tarp Ball Ties and paracord rope. Once the loops around the coconut trees had tension, they were pushed up with a random bamboo pole that had washed up with high tide. This info is from N9SAB the maker of the Antenna. 80-6M 100W HF Ham Radio Antenna OCF Off-Center Fed Dipole Integrated 4:1 matching transformer with a UHF SO239 his antenna requires a tuner. The antenna is an 80 Meter half-wave dipole fed 1/3 of the distance from the end. This raises the feed-point impedance to approximately 200 ohms. To compensate, the antenna is equipped with a 4:1 Ruthroff -style voltage balun (impedance matching transformer) embedded between the UHF female connector and the 18 AWG UL1007 elements. The transformer uses one (1) FT140-43 ferrite toroid. The result is a highly functional OCF dipole for use on 80 through 6 meters. Parts and connections have been weather proofed using marine-grade, adhesive-lined double-walled polyolefin shrink tubing Weighs under 20oz. (566 grams) 47 feet in length, the other approximately 83 feet It fits easily into a pocket. What is Winlink? It works all over the world, all the time, and requires no infrastructure other than that provided by amateur radio operators themselves. As a result, many emergency planners see Winlink as a crucial backup when all else has failed. The Winlink has a large library of forms that allow hams to enter information or transmit messages in the specific format needed by whichever agencies are involved in a particular emergency event. We invite you check out more info Hawaii ARES - https://hawaiiares.net http://www.earchi.org/education/ Emergency Amateur Radio Club - Hawaii would like to assist Oahu residents in obtaining or upgrading their FCC Amateur Radio licenses. An amateur radio operator is someone who uses equipment at an amateur radio station to engage in two-way personal communications with other amateur operators on radio frequencies assigned to the amateur radio service. Amateur radio operators have been granted an amateur radio license by a governmental regulatory authority after passing an examination on applicable regulations, electronics, radio theory, and radio operation. As a component of their license, amateur radio operators are assigned a call sign that they use to identify themselves during communication. Amateur radio operators are also known as radio amateurs or hams. The term "ham" is a nickname for amateur radio operators.

South America 10m contest  http://sa10m.com.ar/wp/en-home/ is the competition that encourages amateur radio world to beam their antennas toward South America.
That’s the organizing team goal.
The mission is to achieve a fun event and improve, year after year, the operational ability of the participants.
We hope that you enjoy it and that 28MHz propagation conditions, along with the enthusiasm of the participants, do to achieve our goals.



This was a fun contest! I was operating from Molokai on a DX Holiday! Using IC-7300 and mainly a Rob KH6RX Vertical push up mast.

Winter Field Day https://www.winterfieldday.com/

Amateur radio operators are also known as radio amateurs or hams. The term "ham" is a nickname for amateur radio operators. 

Purpose Mission Statement: To foster Ham camaraderie, field operation, emergency operating preparedness, and just plain on the air, outdoor fun in the midst of winter for American, Canadian, and DX Hams. 

When: Winter Field Day runs for 24 hours during the last full weekend in January each year from 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Saturday to 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Sunday.

Winter Field Day Association
 Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that is done each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.
​ We believe, as do the ARES & RACES organizations, that maintaining your operational skills should not be limited to fair weather scenarios. The addition of Winter Field Day will enhance those already important skills of those that who generously volunteer their time and equipment to these organizations. This is why WFD is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide.
 Disasters are unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them. WFDA's goal is to help enhance your skills and ready you for all environmental conditions found in the US and Canada during the spring, summer, fall and winter Preparedness is the key to a professional and timely response during any event and this is what local and state authorities are expecting when they reach  out to the emergency service groups that offer their services.
 If you are serious about emergency communications as we are; we welcome you to join us for our yearly event. We are sure you will find this event a pleasant change and challenge to that of a normal summer time field day.

An amateur radio operator is someone who uses equipment at an amateur radio station to engage in two-way personal communications with other amateur operators on radio frequencies assigned to the amateur radio service. Amateur radio operators have been granted an amateur radio license by a governmental regulatory authority after passing an examination on applicable regulations, electronics, radio theory, and radio operation. As a component of their license, amateur radio operators are assigned a call sign that they use to identify themselves during communication.

Extended, the dipole is cut for the 80 meter band with one element approximately 47 feet in length, the other approximately 83 feet. It can be used in any of the standard dipole configurations, flat-top, inverted V, sloper, vertical dipole, wire vertical w/counterpoise, etc. but the patterns achieved through different configurations are not the same as with a classic half-wave dipole in a standard configuration.

https://www.khon2.com/local-news/local-restaurants-continue-to-offer-affordable-pre-fixed-thanksgiving-meals-despite-increased-costs/
by: Nikki Schenfeld Posted: Nov 14, 2021 HST HONOLULU (KHON2) —


In 2020, to-go Thanksgiving meals were extremely popular and long lines were seen outside restaurants due to gathering size restrictions. Make Reservations at Tikisgrill.com.


Several restaurants are also offering pre-fixed Thanksgiving meals, but reservations are going fast.

“We anticipate to sell out this year just like we did last year,” said Michael Miller, director of operations for Tiki’s Grill and Bar. “The demand is high, and we still have some capacity issues going on.”

Restaurants on Oahu are still required to keep six feet of social distancing between tables indoors; proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 48 hours is also required to dine in.

“If you want those special times, if you want a sizable table, I highly recommend you make a reservation,” Miller said.

Even though prices are increasing for just about everything, Tiki’s said they are not raising their prices for Thanksgiving dinner. The dinner includes spiced butternut squash bisque, lemongrass cornbread, slow-roasted turkey, sausage apple chestnut dressing, Yukon gold potato gratin, Molokai potato purée, sage chardonnay pan gravy, fresh cranberry and bacon, macadamia nut, pineapple brussels sprouts, pumpkin cheesecake and live music.

“We know the costs are increasing and we kind of went over it and kind of said, ‘hey, this is what we think that we still should do, at least this year, at the $39 mark,’” Miller of Tiki’s said. “The live entertainment, the free valet — there is the ocean view, it’s going to be a wonderful, wonderful holiday season.”

On Oahu, visitors show vax records and businesses adapt to Covid rules

Travel Weekly - By Tovin Lapan  | Sep 17, 2021 |

HONOLULU -- On the first night of new regulations designed to beat back a pandemic surge, establishments throughout Waikiki looked more like exclusive nightclubs in South Beach or Las Vegas than resort-area restaurants.

But to get past the velvet ropes, bouncers were looking for vaccination cards or recent negative Covid-19 tests, not the best-dressed or those most likely to shell out for table service.

Under the Safe Access Oahu rules effective Sept. 13, all guests and employees at restaurants, bars, gyms, museums and other businesses and attractions across the island must show either proof of vaccination or a negative result on a Covid-19 test taken within 48 hours.

Unvaccinated employees must be tested once a week.

Bars and restaurants deployed barriers, tables and additional staff to their entrances to handle document checks. At Deck, inside the Queen Kapiolani Hotel, after vaccine or test records were verified, diners signed a ledger and provided an address for contact tracing, and they could stay for only 90 minutes. 

On Waikiki's Kalakaua Avenue, dotted with luxury shops and hotels, a restaurant sign trumpeted a surf-and-turf special and, in bold letters, "All Employees Vaccinated." At a sushi spot next door, a line formed to sit at one of its Plexiglas-enclosed tables.

Restaurants reported depressed sales in recent weeks, but the new regulations, coupled with capacity restrictions, created the effect that half-full Waikiki was as busy as ever. 

Michael Miller, director of operations at Tiki's Grill and Bar on the Waikiki beachfront said he is hiring two staff members to beef up presence at the door.

"You've got to have the right person up front," he said. "People are already stressed. They are jet-lagged and hangry on top of that. So you need to hire someone for the door who is an ambassador of aloha, someone who has the training and can start the customer experience off right."

Ryan Tanaka, co-owner of Waikiki sports bar Giovanni Pastrami, said a few customers had to be turned away on the first day for not having the necessary documents.

"The majority of our clientele are tourists, and a lot don't realize this is going on," he said. "They're not tracking rules county by county, and this is just Oahu. So they book a ticket to come to Hawaii, and they show up at a restaurant and we say, 'Sorry, can you show us your vaccination card?' There's a little bit of a surprise factor."

In general, restaurant owners said the first day went relatively smoothly, but Tanaka, who is also vice chairman of the Hawaii Restaurant Association, said members across the island were reporting a steep decline in foot traffic.

Vaccination rates rising among restaurant employees

Oahu's new policy does seem to be spurring vaccinations among employees at the impacted businesses.

At Giovanni Pastrami, they expect to go from 83% of staff vaccinated to 95% in the next few weeks, but Tanaka added the new rules could exacerbate an ongoing labor shortage. 

"Not all employees are responding well to the policy," he said. "What it's doing is adding stress to an already stressed situation." 

Miller said an additional 20 of his 110 staff members were motivated to get vaccinated recently, and he thought the new rules could boost hiring.

"In one way, it makes some of the staff feel a bit better about serving visitors," he said.

In addition to labor woes, supply chain bottlenecks and the new vaccine mandate, Oahu restaurants were also hit with capacity reductions and a ban on large events in the past month. Also, in August, Gov. David Ige discouraged visitation to the Islands through the end of October.

"It's definitely a frustrating time to be in the restaurant business," said Tom Jones, co-owner of Gyotaku Japanese Restaurants. "For some restaurants, maybe they've been able to survive until now, but this next down period could be the straw that breaks the camel's back."

In the latest ARRL Letter From the AANext SpaceX Commercial Crew to ISS Comprised of Radio Amateurs

Four radio amateurs will head to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard a commercial flight, thanks to Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS). They are Raja Chari, KI5LIU; Tom Marshburn, KE5HOC; Kayla Barron, KI5LAL, and Matthias Maurer, KI5KFH, a European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut. The targeted launch date is no sooner than October 31, from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The launch will mark the third SpaceX Crew

The SpaceX Crew-3 astronauts (L-R) Matthias Maurer, KI5KFH; Thomas Marshburn, KE5HOC; Raja Chari, KI5LIU, and Kayla Barron, KI5LAL, during pre-flight training at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket launch combination as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program, which provides transportation to and from the ISS. The crew is scheduled for a 6-month stay aboard the orbiting laboratory, living and working as part of what's expected to be a seven-member crew.

The launch will be the first spaceflight for Chari, Barron, and Maurer, and the third for Marshburn.

NASA's SpaceX Crew-3 will be the third crew rotation mission to the ISS with astronauts on a US rocket and spacecraft and the fourth flight with astronauts, including the Demo-2 test flight in 2020, the Crew-1 mission in 2020 - 2021, and the ongoing Crew-2 flight as part of the Expedition 65 crew.

Crew-3 astronauts plan to arrive at the station to overlap with NASA Astronauts Shane Kimbrough, KE5HOD, and Megan McArthur; Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Astronaut Akihiko Hoshide, KE5DNI, and ESA Astronaut Thomas Pesquet, KG5FYG, who flew to the station as part of the agency's SpaceX Crew-2 mission in April 2021.

Mission teams have a target launch date of no earlier than April 15, 2022, for the launch of the SpaceX Crew-4 mission. "NASA's Commercial Crew Program is working with industry through a public-private partnership to provide safe, reliable, and cost-effective transportation to and from the International Space Station, which will allow for additional research time and will increase the opportunity for discovery aboard humanity's testbed for exploration," NASA said. "The space station remains the springboard to space exploration, including future missions to the moon and Mars."

Michael Miller is a past chairperson of the Hawaii Restaurant Association (HRA) and is still an active member of HRA. He is the Director of Operations and a Partner at Tiki's Grill & Bar

https://www.khon2.com/wake-up-2day/wakeup2dayrestaurant-workers-respond-to-the-75-capacity-limit-adjustment-and-say-it-does-not-help/

Interview with TV Report Dallis Ontiveros from KHON2

More COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and are now in effect.

Mainland travelers with proof of vaccination can now skip the mandatory quarantine and pre-test.

And more people are allowed to gather, 25 people indoors and 75 people outdoors. Dallis Ontiveros went live around town during WakeUp2Day to hear what residents think.

The current 75% capacity for restaurants does nothing for restaurants because we have to still maintain the 6’ social distancing both inside and outside.

This is causing long wait times and is causing our local and visiting guests to have a very different experience than in the past.

  It also results in overworked and very tired employees.

You can gather outside in groups of 75 with no masks, but you have to sit on a patio and maintain 6’. Makes no sense.

About the HRA

The Hawaii Restaurant Association (HRA) helps to support and ensure a favorable environment for all to thrive in the foodservice industry.
We do this via the following:

Legislative Advocacy:
Biggest issues currently faced include labor, health care reform and new bills that propose changes that would negatively impact the industry.
HRA is active at the capitol, communicating to lawmakers how these issues impact the foodservice industry.
Networking & Community Engagement:
The sharing of best practices among peers plus recognizing and rewarding the unsung heroes of our industry who make a difference in the communities they serve.
Education & Future Employee Development:
The HRA tracks Hawaii restaurant industry key performance indicators to provide operating bench marks, and works with the Department of Education & Community Education centers to make ready the next generation of food service talent entering the work force.
News-Resources-Support:
HRA sources industry news from around the US and the world to ensure that members are kept up to date with the latest developments and best practices. From food safety to talent deployment and development, we will absorb the best articles and condense them into digestible facts and quick reference.
We also recognize our local leaders, trendsetters and ambassadors with our annual events like the Hall of Fame Dinner and Employee Appreciation and Excellence Awards.
Special membership discounts and savings from vendors providing specialty services to the HRA Members and the Hawaii Foodservice industry.
The HRA website provides the link to thousands of dollars in saving for our members. All vendors are background checked and tested to ensure true value and product/service integrity.

HRA is looking for more ways to increase the labor force in the foodservice industry. For a variety of reasons, labor represents the most complex and perplexing issue for foodservice operators from all segments — one that could keep the industry from reaching a full revenue potential. Hawaii is experiencing its lowest unemployment rate in over 6 years. With the number of new restaurants opening, HRA is working with a number of companies that focus on training and preparing individuals to work in foodservice.

Operators will face further pressure from the public and local municipalities due to the ongoing minimum wage debate and the need to provide benefits, specifically healthcare, to entry-level employees. So, without question, labor costs will continue to apply pressure to operators’ bottom line. Exactly how much pressure? HRA projects labor-related costs could increase anywhere from 50 percent to 100 percent in the next 5 years.

Who will pay the price for these increases? It’s likely the customer. Many operators will have to increase menu prices to cover the cost increases. If you have good operational effectiveness, it makes this easier. But consumers will need to get used to paying higher prices.

Government represents an issue that’s even more perplexing than labor. In fact, 23 percent of operators feel government is the top issue that will impact their business moving forward, according to the National Restaurant Association. It’s not any one factor that concerns operators but a variety of them, including minimum wage increases, the impact of the Affordable Care Act, recent National Labor Relations Board rulings on the franchise model and much more. HRA is keeping you informed as to what comes from our local and the national legislative sessions.

A key factor to prepare for the future is the operators willingness and ability to invest in customer-facing technology that will help them with future growth and success.

In fact, one out of three consumers report the availability of technology impacts their decision to dine out. This covers a plethora of technologies, including mobile apps, in-store kiosks, tableside tablets and unlocking the potential of digital menu boards. These products do more than make a restaurant appear more contemporary. They give operators more control over their businesses. HRA is continuously researching new technologies to bring to the Hawaii foodservice industry.

Technology allows staff to not only target customer service but also impact sales through suggestive selling. Now the technology exists to facilitate real-time education that ranges from information to where the food is sourced to how it’s prepared. And an educated customer is good for the restaurant industry. A lot of these technologies have potential to drive incremental sales. That includes driving sales through loyalty programs and even having the flexibility to adjust prices by daypart.

Successful implementation of technology will become more than an operational imperative; it will allow restaurants to shape their guest experiences long before the customers place an order or walk through the front door.
