Be aware that the broadband signal is not super strong at Kaluakoi so the streaming images will be somewhat choppy and may even cut out periodically. But be patient with this new technology. As the raceprogresses towards Oahu the signal strengthens, and for the last thirdof the race the streaming video will be cleaner and crisper.
