Here's How to List Your Station

palm trees ohana net radio

Simple as Sponsor and Free


Two Ways to be Included in the Ohana Net Listings:

Basic (no cost, waiting period): Sign Up for the Chat Room (get an ID, pwd, etc).
Then in the Chat Room type my call sign along with yours, mine is W6BQZ, then add your city, state, and first name and say, "Start90". There is a 90 day waiting period to verify you are logging in on a regular basis. If you wish to avoid this waiting period, there is a $19 fee. Sorry, it really makes perfect sense, otherwise we would have to add everyone including those who are really only touch and goes.

2. Sponsor Listing w/Photo: Get your equipment listed and your photo at the top of this page. Sponsor amounts at or over $35.00 qualify. Sponsoring period is one year. There is no waiting period. Here's what you do, it's easy:

Donate first - Click the Donate button below, and where it says Special Instructions to the seller, please open the box where you can place text in it, then fill in your call sign and the word, Ohana, then,

Compose an email to send me your photo and a short list of your 20 meter station equipment (example, for antennas, just put the antenna you use for this Net) via email to: w6bqz@zebrahamradio.com

We need Sponsors! Boy do we need Sponsors, so Here's How:

About the Ohana Net


The "Ohana" net is on 14.268 MHz at 1630 UTC weekday and Saturday mornings and they have an alternate frequency for weekends, let me see, here it is, it's 14.307 - same time slot, so that's easy, on Saturday or Sunday mornings. To be sure, it is always good to double check.

So we have established that the Net starts at 1630 UTC. About thirty minutes or so before the Net you can find members getting a head start, milling about, saying hello, offering 73s, chortling QSLs, eating a pineapple catching up on what's new. (If you discover any hams wandering outside the perimeter, please direct them back as soon as possible).

While the Net is structured just enough to recognize everyone, it is not excessively so and that gives it a warm and relaxing glow. It's a fun net to get into and stretch you signal legs - check out propagation and discover how your station is doing - out to the islands or into the mainland if you live in those warm and amazing waters of the Pacific Ocean. What an amazing opportunity and it happens everyday, like clockwork, the volunteers at this Net are beyond compare, keeping everything going strong, day after day after month after year. We are lucky to have them. We are very lucky to have them.

Photo Credit: The beautiful Haleiwa Rainbow photo is a contribution from Larry Dighera, WB6BBB who says it was taken on November 15, 2009 at Haleiwa Beach on the North Shore of Oahu. Larry, you're a great guy. And folks should know that Larry also contributed some very interesting links regarding historic facts and photos of the Kahuku Marconi Wireless Station on the North Shore. We appreciate and thank you very much for letting us include it on our page. Aloha and High Five!

Now, where were we? I just turned 65 and I am constantly misplacing everything, glasses, keys, socks. Terrible. But wait, here is where we left off:

You won't be required to do anything other tha n to be part of the Ohana Family and then when you get the call, you can grab that golden mike, twist the knobs on that new radio yousaved up for, fire it up and give us the scoop on what's happening at your corner of the world. No suit or tie or cufflink is necessary. Scuba gear, coconuts and woven hats are okay but might raise some eyebrows with the relatives if you hail from cooler climates. Go easy on the flip flops, they might confuse some of the boat anchors, but that's okay we welcome all things big and small, lightweight or Category 5 Refrigerator Size. It's all okay in the land of Ohana. Palm trees will still sway. And remember, if you have RF problems, please contact Bob at palomar-engineers.com - for real no kidding, he will chase your raspy voice right out of your family room stereo just as quick as a jet ski in a Haleiwan sunset.

Notice: If you find a grass skirt floating nearby, please return it to the smaller shack in the back of the track, sha-boom, sha-boom.

Ben, KH6LJ is in Oahu, Hawaii, North Shore, and is known as the manager, founder and chairman of the Net. And there are alternate net control operators who take the helm: Wayne, WH6OR in Maui; Tom, N0EV in Colorado; and Gene, WB7DBJ, on Whidbey Island, Washington; and, George, W9EVT, and others take the assignment when called upon. Each team member takes turns running the Net during the week and on weekends, and Ben can almost always be found every day and he takes the control seat on Saturdays.



Ohana in Hawaii means "family" and all are welcome to join in, share signal strengths, weather reports, and what is new in your life - and most importantly, to enjoy the comradery. We have inscribed "Ohana means Family" blue and gold pens with bright light and stylus on sale at: ohananetradio.com/pens.html -- We also have a Chat Channel to take advantage of and communicate when Solar Flares force us resort to smoke signals or any means possible.

Will the owner of the '46 Woody please report to the East exit Valet Shack, we've found your statue of Don Ho along with what looks like an old SCM 900 something if you want to retrieve it. We're wondering what you could possibly use it for. hi hi


This page is a work in progress (no kidding, can you tell?), and I do this as a hobby. In no way do I represent the Ohana Net, but in every way I hope that if this page helps existing members or prospective members, that would be a very good thing. I started doing these kind of pages when I found that I could keep track of the Net from almost any device known to the technological world - my iPad was the biggest reason.

If you would like to host a quarterly column here to keep the members up to date with what's going on, please email W6BQZ@zebrahamradio.com.
