    My two cents: the KH6/call is better for logging programs that look at the prefix in order to populate the Country field. “KH6/call” would map to Hawaii, while “call/KH6” would map to United States of America.

    Also: Don’t forget you’ll need to create a new certificate if you use LOTW for this QTH and time period.

    Good luck! You get to do something that is still on my bucket list. I’ll watch out for you. :D

    It looks like I’ll be setting up for 3:30 pm today (Hawaii local) on 20M. I don’t know...how about 14.042?

    And CW only! I didn’t even bring a mic. Did I mention slooow CW?

    I can't do CW, yet, but I listened in to see if I could hear. I was a little late, so I was listening about 0150 UTC. Sorry, didn't hear anything.
    Hopefully you were able to make contact with someone.

    No worries! You are a champ for trying!

    As it turns out I did manage to contact my friend in Los Angeles, amazingly enough. It was very faint but I could hear my call sign and he could hear me sending. Very rewarding!
