                       The USCGARC Mascot is Captain Pepper! He's a 2 year old Miniature Schnauzer.


Pictured above is a piece of the recently removed 500 kHz distress receiving antenna that stood in place
and served on watch for over 60 years at US Coast Guard Communications Station Honolulu - NMO. Together with
many generations of US Coast Guard Radiomen this feed point insulator stood the continuous vigil over many
decades continuously listening, never failing, and "Always Ready" to hear and put into motion Coast Guard
lifesaving response and action over the large expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

The Admiral Jet crossed the bar then went across the rainbow bridge on June 14, 2021. He was a 1 year old Miniature Schnauzer and mascot for the USCG Amateur Radio Net. He would sit quietly in his chair listening unless there was a squirrel or cat that encroched on his turf. Then his strong voice would be heard world wide with full modulation of the radio gear. He was a faithful friend and his departure has left a huge void at Net Control. Fair winds and following seas. RIP Admiral Jet!
