“Did-you-feel-it Reporting via Winlink”

Oliver Dully, K6OLI

Oliver K6OLI will present Did-you-feel-it reporting via Winlink. Learn how you can participate in reporting earthquake intensity to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) even when commercial communication options are compromised and what the implications are for amateur radio networks. Oliver encourages everyone who wants to, to follow along and send a Winlink DYFI exercise message to USGS as part of the presentation. Winlink is available for free at https://winlink.org/WinlinkExpress

Oliver Dully, K6OLI, serves as District Emergency Coordinator for ARES LAX Northeast, which provides amateur radio communications backup for 911 receiving hospitals in northeastern Los Angeles County. Operators with ARES LAX Northeast use innovative technologies like Winlink with VARA HF, VARA FM, Packet and AREDN mesh, for example, to provide amateur radio solutions for the complex communications demands of medical facilities when commercial options may have been compromised.

Oliver has authored several popular Winlink Quick Guides for Packet and VARA FM. He coordinated the Winlink Did-you-feel-it (DYFI) project, a Winlink Development Team and West Coast ARES groups collaboration with the United States Geological Survey. He is one of the initiators of the VARA FM Winlink Autobahn connecting Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.

With his friends Oliver enjoys supporting events like the AC100 UltraRace and the Baker2Vegas Relay Cup Race.  Oliver and Tran K6NHI live in Pasadena, CA.
