Re: Saturday Nov 14th Drill

Bruce
 

Hi Bob and DST group:

First - I stand corrected on the so called "Winlink shutdown" (I am glad to learn there IS redundancy in the system). This is twice  that I have picked up information from the SEC-ARES group that was wrong. The other was in sending pictures over Winlink during the drill! We all must learn to NOT believe every thing we - see - read - and hear! Verify it! That also goes for disaster management, when many rumors are flying about!!

Now on to Winlink use and training. Bob - KG6RGI wrote: "The idea of Winlink is to get it directly to the intended end user." That is SO TRUE!"  So just WHO is the END USER?? That will depend on the circumstances and conditions created by the disaster event. Primarily Red Cross is called in to mitigate the effects of a disaster on disaster victims. For effective and timely relief for Red Cross clients, communications is VITAL! As a DST TEAM our mission is to set up an operative and reliable communications infrastructure, of computers, printers and networks, and radio communications systems, not only in the San Diego, but in other areas Red Cross may be deployed! This takes TRAINING!  In the local geographic area, where Red Cross is setting up to serve clients, if the disaster has destroyed ALL communications infrastructure, then the END USER becomes workers and staff in all vital Red Cross ICS functions!! There is a term used in disaster management called "The Last Mile." During the Katrina disaster the "Last Mile" was more like 50 Miles, in which NO normal communications systems were left operative!! ONLY reliable Point-To-Point communications, will allow Red Cross to serve its clients with the services they need. Radio communications would need to be established at locations like: Shelters, Service centers, the CDOC, Temporary Evacuation points (TEP), Staging areas, The County EOC, to name a few. The distances are short and easily covered by VHF Winlink - VARA-FM  Peer To Peer (P2P) or repeater communications, to send and receive filled out Red Cross Forms. There have been many discussions about how to handle, and have the forms filled out. Filling these forms out by hand will NOT work and is prone to errors! The most efficient and accurate means I see, is for DST Team members to be equipped with tablet computers. If a "End User" needs to send a message form, such as an ICS213, 6409, then the DST worker would "open" that "form" up on the tablet, and have the Red Cross staff worker fill it out. Then this message with the attached form  could quickly and reliably sent on a Winlink VARA P2P connection! DO YOU NOW see the VALUE for the Red Cross DST Communications Teams to TRAIN and develop skills on VARA-FM on Winlink P2P, and repeater  station relay??!!! NOTE: there is a VARA "Broadcast - chat" function, where an announcement or status report can be received by all the P2P stations on the net frequency, that I plan to learn through TRAINING!
For disaster message traffic to and from a disaster area, going to/from National or Divisional, for mutual aid support, obviously would be handled on HF PACTOR  or  VARA 4.0. - using the same Winlink skill set learned in TRAINING!

During the meeting I asked all who were planning to participate in the drill to send me an e-mail. Since I didn’t get one thought something had come up and you were not going to be available.

 

As for Winlink system, to my knowledge its only the website, NOT the capability to transmit winlink msg’s.

 

We will have drills in the future. Not sure how much interest is really there right now. As for P2P, not a big fan as it only ends up on the two winlink computers that transmitted the msg. The idea of Winlink is to get it directly to the intended end user. In P2P someone will have to transcribe the msg onto another format to deliver.

Re: Saturday Nov 14th Drill

Fred Curtis, KI6GRO
 

Bruce,

Your information is incorrect.

The only thing that will be down during the drill is the Winlink.org website, not the Winlink system.  This was confirmed by
  1. The Winlink website home page.
  2. Mike Burton, XE2/N6KZB, Winlink development team.
Emails will be unaffected and you can send them anytime in the designated time zone window.

There is redundancy in the system with 2 CMS's and one back-up CMS which happens to be here in San Diego.

For the National Red Cross drill -Traffic MUST be passed before 1200 PST Saturday! 
WHY is there not REDUNDANCY built into the system!? The CMS could go down during a disaster and there is NO backup??  We do not need single point failures to take down the entire winlink network!

I just wish we could of had our own local drill in addition, to learn to pass other forms like the 6409 and the shelter report form, and also to practice P2P and sending VARA thru the Palomar repeater. PLEASE we NEED this training!

Attached you will find the instructions about the drill and how to complete the ARC-213 form. I know Fred KI6GRO sent these before, wanted to make sure everyone had a copy.

 

For the details about the team in the body of the message below is information you can include.

 

Team Name

Red Cross DST So. Cal Region

 

Number of Participants

5

 

Number of operators Winlink Capable (I don’t know how many are in Org, Riverside, or SB)

15

 

Remember you only need to send 1 ARC-213 to ARCPACIFIC between the hours of 6am to 6pm.

(NOTE: the winlink system will be down for maintenance for 12 hours on 11-14 starting at 1200 PST!!!)
