Alturas Functional Shelter Exercise

ARES DEC Jim Linden, N7JI, and EC Dan Stossmeister, KJ6ZUW were invited to the Strong Family Functional Shelter Exercise on June 27th in Alturas, CA. The scenario was no electricity or Internet for 24 hours. Clinic had a generator running and we set up Packet Winlink in a closet with an outside antenna. From there we sent and received e-mails for the shelter. All the agencies participated there were quite impressed with that capability that hams can bring to a disaster.
