QRP portable operation with my Elecraft KX3 and vertical dipole. I was able to make time for 3 operating sessions - Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday afternoon, and worked from 3 different beach parks in the Honolulu area. For my operating times, 20 meters was the only band that was workable beyond Hawaii. Most of my contacts on 80/40/15 were with locals. I think the HQP needs to balance the goal of outreach beyond Hawaii with the equally important goal of promoting communication within the state. Many of the biggest stations with their monster beams pointed to NA/EU never even heard me calling them. There should be a much bigger incentive for HI stations to work each other. Although our biggest stations treat HQP as a hard-core contest, it really should always be a QSO Party foremost - a chance for operators of all skill levels and station sizes to get on the air and promote amateur radio in Hawaii. 73 and Aloha, Bob KH6BE
