The Hawaiian station plays a very important role in the VHF network. It is located in the Pacific where there are very few stations.
The installation was carried out autonomously by the host site in November 2021.
This station can be configured to receive data from the NOAA 18 and NOAA 19 weather satellites. The reconstructed images are used to verify the quality of the site and to identify any degradation in signal reception.
