When NN1N at ARRL contacted me shortly after this year's Dayton convention and asked if we had any interest in activating NU1AW during this, the 50th year anniversary of Alaska and Hawaii becoming the 49th and 50th states of the USA, I had a big smile on my face for the rest of the day. I immediately called Alex, KH6YY, the owner of the contest station on Oahu’s North shore, and received a very positive response from him as well; Alex was 100% in favor of doing this... game on! During the ensuing busy weeks, I contacted Lloyd, KH6LC on the Big Island of Hawaii to ask if he and his gang would be interested in putting his fine station on the air for IARU 2009 to join us on Oahu in this effort... he was all for it as well. Thank you, KH6LC and company! For various logistical reasons, we agreed to do all of the SSB from KH6YY on Oahu, with the exception of 80m, where we would do the CW, and KH6LC would do all the CW, except for SSB on 80. One of the obstacles we faced along the way was the fact that at KH6YY we use Writelog, and at KH6LC the N1MM logger is used. We decided that we could sort out combining the logs after the contest without too much trouble (right!), but as a means of being able to keep tabs on how our individual efforts were progressing during the contest, I contacted Gerry, W1VE, the creator of to see if we could work out a way to have our scores show up in real time on his web page, even though we would be posting under the same call sign. Gerry spent a considerable amount of time working with me in the weeks leading up to the contest, burning the midnight oil day after day to make this happen... thank you, W1VE! The first 12 hours were extremely discouraging for us here on Oahu, the second half was exceptional, with over 2/3 of our contacts made during the last 12 hours. I have never seen anything like this before... a phenomenal turn-around. Heartfelt thanks to Alex, KH6YY, who was unable to join us due to an extended business trip, but as always, allowed us to invade his QTH for the weekend anyway. And a very big thank you to NN1N, K1ZZ, and ARRL for allowing us to be a part of something we will all, always remember. ALOHA! Mike KH6ND
