WNC Earthquake Drill
June 23-24, 2009
Mitchell county ARES plan
ver 1.8
Scenario
   We understand the drill will be a response to a 9.5 magnitude earthquake centered between Asheville and Hendersonville.  Affected are all counties including and west of Mitchell, McDowell, Polk.  The earthquake will disrupt all cell phone service, all radio repeaters, all internet service, all VIPER service. 

   ARES Amateur radio digital communications will be an important communications service for the initial hours.

Activation:
   The earthquake will physically roll us out of bed at 6:00 AM.  Turn on your VHF radio to 146.500.   KI4ZUI will provide early voice relay from a knob near his QTH.

Mitchell county ARES response plan
   The Mitchell county EOC will be manned by two operators, with Winlink HF and VHF capability as well as HF/VHF/UHF voice capability.  Winlink access will be provided within the EOC by Paclink on the EOC LAN, with e-mail clients on 6-8 existing work stations configured to use the Paclink e-mail server.  Airmail will be a backup system to Paclink.  If using Airmail, radio operators will create e-mail messages from input on ICS-213 forms.  Received e-mail will be printed, and delivered to recipients.
   Equipment:  ARES work station running Paclink.  KC4TVO's IC-706, SCS modem, antenna tuner for Winlink.
                      WA9OTP's IC-706, tuner, and power supply for voice.
