March 23, 2021: Oliver Dully K6OLI: DYFI: How Amateur radio operators can help provide earthquake-related observations when others cannot

PLEASE NOTE: Because our meeting location is unavailable due to the coronavirus situation, this presentation will be webcast on the internet. See the IMPORTANT NOTE at the top of this page.

During earthquakes, amateur radio operators can provide reliable on-the-ground observations from affected areas in a timely manner when other means of communication are offline. Join us for a lively conversation on Did-You-Feel-It (DYFI) via Winlink, how it came about, what it is, how it can be used to leverage disaster response worldwide. Implementing a consistent DYFI response has changed how ARES LAX operates and trains. Use this opportunity to learn about DFYI and to ask questions!
