Date   

DST Meeting for Aug

Bob Birch
 

Just a quick reminder this month's meeting will have outside presenters from the PAPA System. Would really like to have a large turnout for them. The agenda is to go over everything DMR then specifically discuss the Anytone 878. They will go over all the functions and how to use them in the 878.

If you have DMR questions this is the meeting you want to attend.

As usual the meeting is the first Sat of the month. That means the meeting for Aug is this Saturday Aug 3rd in the CDOC from 9am till approx. 12 noon.

All,
A few of my personal notes from what I learned at an SDG&E public presentation on this topic Spring 2018, these notes mostly came from the Q&A. The most relevant page in the power point Rob forwarded is page 8:

  • along with "back country", power shutoff can/will also affect the wildland urban interface (WUI), those areas that border "open space".  Deep urban dwellers not so much unless a major transmission line is shut down
  • "Patrolled"= inspected.   SDG&E has no other means to determine grid integrity than eye-balls, either in trucks or helicopters
  • a multi-day Santa Ana event (we know what those are like) will postpone the start of inspections until forecast wind conditions are below SDG&E's hazard thresholds
  • along with forecast wind gust thresholds, there are forecast sustained wind thresholds that will hold the start of inspections
  • a three-day Santa Ana event means grid sections that have been turned OFF, will likely not be re-energized until the end of day four at earliest depending on the availability of inspection resources
  • commercial and residential restoration is the lowest priority
  • how many $'s worth of frozen goods will thaw to an unsafe temperature after four days?
  • how many $'s worth of refrigerated goods will warm to an unsafe temperature after four days?
  • if your water source is an on-site well, do you have four days worth of pumped storage?
  • back country fire stations that depend on well water are equally affected. Separately, a Cleveland NF fire captain told me his stations are not equipped with gensets, nor are Cal Fire stations
  • ha! I have solar! Grid-connected solar will be automatically OFF during PSPS events for SDG&E worker safety
IMHO, Santa Ana event prep now includes genset and fuel for four days. ready. set. go.

Respectfully,
Dennis

ARES Members,

Attached for your situational awareness is a Sempra presentation on
the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) program.

As you know, when the power drops, we start to lose cell towers and
repeaters because back-up power supplies do not always work.

Re: Looking for a Small SSD Drive

Jer Kostro - Red Cross
 

Thanks Mike - lets hold off a bit and see what turns up.

Not a question of money as much as I hate seeing good stuff go to waste. I recently upgraded all my hard drives in my laptops (six) to SSDs, including replacing one of my smaller SSDs (120GB). Perfectly good Samsung drive with lots of life left in it - I just needed more capacity. It's found a new home in the Toughbook. I'm sure there are other small homeless drives floating around.

What you get for the money these days is amazing. I remember buying 200 MB HDDs for $800 a piece - and that was back when money was worth something.:-)

73,

Jer

Sorry Jer. No SSD drives here.

A quick check on Amazon shows a few Kingston and others for around $20-$25. Count me in to donate one.

I can buy or you can and I’ll reimburse. Your call. Let me know.

Hi, All -

Been working on the Comms Trailers ToughBook laptops. I put a surplus SSD drive into one of them - really improves performance and turns it into perfectly usable computer for programming radios and other limited uses.

If someone has a small (120GB) SSD drive they aren't using and are willing to donate it to the team I'll upgrade the other ToughBook. Larger ones are relatively cheap but IMHO overkill for a 2007 vintage computer. If I get more than one drive I'll see about the possibility of upgrading our netbooks or other computers.

You can bring it with you to the August 3rd team meeting or contact me direct and we'll figure out a way to get it to me.

Many thanks and 73,

I don't care what everyone else says. You are truly a River to your people.

First time I invited my parents over for a meal as a emancipated adult IIRC the menu was hot dogs and beer. The quality of the cuisine went up exponentially after I was married.
