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.

(Video) 2021 Thanksgiving mention on KHON2 TV of Tiki's Grill & Bar

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.”
