    Yeah. Though when I first saw the photo of the other statue, I did have a Dogma moment.

    Had to do a double-take before I was sure that it wasn't the modern version of Buddy Christ!

    Thanks, not the way I remembered it, but found my 1989 pix and that is correct. Here a few
    pix inside since you did not board it. Very dim lighting.

    There is also a beautiful Mormon temple on the island. I opportunity to visit it while at a Choral festival in 1991. We also sang at beautiful Catholic church near the Ala Wai canal

    This antenna is very interesting. A standard KT-34XA is only 6 elements

    but the one at KH6LJ has EIGHT Elements!!!
    Must be a custom antenna

    I've got enough KT34 parts to build one like this, but I could never turn it on the existing roof tower. Maybe on the 72footer if I EVER get it up!
    Wonder if there are plans on how he did it. I have a 2nd boom for a KT34, almost enough to make 2 antennas. But the one I have up has been modified to the M2 setup, which is substantially stronger and different than the KLM KT-34

    Hey Pat:
    Did you look for any good local food? I had the idea that there were lots of Mom&Pop walk in food shops in local strip malls and such.

    I saw a few on the North end of the island, and alotta food trucks. But we didn't stop at any. I didnt want any problems on the poot poot seat! so I stuck with TRUSTED food like PANDA EXPRESS.

    The POI they had at the LUAU sucked. Something was way different about it. I remember I loved it 20 years ago, and even smuggled some back home. NOW TSA would confiscate any POI I tried to bring home.
    The taste of it was very bland and tasteless, I remember a brilliant flavor 20 years ago. (when we went to MAUI/BIG ISLAND for our 10th Anniversary) Wonder what changed?

    Oh, yeah, forgot about your tummy issues. I've always heard poi tastes like wallpaper paste. *shrug*. I was only in Hawaii at about 2 a.m. for USAF MAC refueling stop returning from Guam.
