The Koolau Ham Club is a great group on the Windward side of Oahu. For many years they sponsored regular Ham License testing at Windward Community College, faithfully showing up the morning of each third Saturday of each month. Many Oahu Hams are "graduates" of their testing sessions at WCC, now sadly, discontinued, the FCC testing that is, not the "graduates":

There are strange things done in the Midnight Sun,

by the men who moil for gold.

but the queerest they ever did see,

was the night on the marge of Lake LaBarge,

that I cremated Sam McGee.

This club, ARS, specializes in mixing Ham Radio with outdoor actvities of all types, especially QRP or low power operation, battery operation and portable. They sponsor many unique contests oriented towards getting people outdoors with their radios. Ham goes great with cookouts.

This is very far from the truth. The Salvation Army is one of the premier disaster response teams:
