“Did You Feel It” and the “Great California ShakeOut”

Over the last few weeks a group of VC ACS/ARES members have been working to get on the air using Winlink on HF and VHF.  This is to prepare for a “ShakeOut” exercise on Oct 17.

We have our next Zoom meeting this Wednesday, September 9, at 7 p.m. where we’ll review the simulated earthquake scenario, how to complete the DYFI form, test results using Winlink under conditions of low power and  discuss a VHF comms exercise as part of the ShakeOut event.

If you would like to join us there is still ample time to get on the air using Winlink and participate in the ShakeOut. If you are not ready to work digital ops just yet, the VHF comms exercise is simplex phone and may be more to your liking.
