Ken,

 

We can not use the 911 station.  With the construction and the current public health emergency, operating from the Admin Building parking lot is probably not a good idea, unless you get permission from the county.  Maybe you could set up at Nancy’s house.  It’s about the same elevation as the Admin Building parking lot.

 

I know you want to get this finished but considering the current circumstances maybe postponing it is the best thing to do. 

 

I’ll be available mobile if you decide to do the check this Saturday.

 

73,

Buzz, K3GWK

INDEXA NEWS (Special Announcement, dated March 20th -- JH1AJT Amateur of
the Year). INDEXA is especially proud to have one of its members and
principal donors named as the 2020 Amateur of the Year by the Dayton
Hamvention. This honor was bestowed upon Yasu "Zorro" Miyazawa, JH1AJT,
for his charitable work in education and his humanitarianism.
Zorro began his mission in 1984 and has since quietly established and led
multiple educational and humanitarian programs, especially focusing on dis-
advantaged children. Through his work he has built educational bridges of
hope stretching from kindergarten to post graduate programs and touched the
lives of children in multiple countries and cultures. Many of his missions
brought a taste of amateur radio and DXing to the lands he visited.
Through his generous endowment, Zorro brought the INDEXA Humanitarian Aid
Fund, "Hams With Hearts", into existence, and linked DXing and DXpeditions
with service to humanity.
Now DXpeditions visiting disadvantaged areas can use funds provided by
INDEXA and carry with them Zorro's high-reaching optimism and faith and his
ability to feel the needs of others and seek out solutions rather than
fixate on problems.
Through INDEXA's Humanitarian Aid Fund "Hams With Hearts", DXpeditions
have helped schools, hospitals, villages and individuals by focusing on
high impact low cost projects. People are empowered to overcome their
adversities while respect and appreciation of amateur radio grows. Zorro,
JH1AJT, was the catalyst who made this possible.
Congratulations, Zorro. Your generosity, humanity and humility are an
example for all of us.

VP8PJ SOUTH ORKNEY DXPEDITION NEWS (Update). Gene, K5GS (ZL1NA, VK2IXC),
reported on Tuesday, March 17th [edited]: "Thanks for the pileups! We
have all left Punta Arenas and are either home or another location of
choice.
Several of us left Punta Arenas sooner than planned because of the
Coronavirus situation and possible airline chaos. Fortunately, of those
I've heard from, we had no problem buying a new ticket and getting to
our final destination.
On Sunday when Rob and I arrived at LAX the Immigration and Customs
area was empty, so no delays. All our flights were uneventful and on
time.
After being away for 5 weeks we need to get our personal affairs in
order and will work on DX-pedition related tasks as time is available.
So please be patient, we have all have other life responsibilities.
If you have a Not in Log or suspected busted call, Do 'not' send
e-mails, and please 'don't' send screenshots or log files unless requested.
Follow the Not in Log procedure: https://sorkney.com/qsl/
Sending unsolicited e-mails slows the process, Tim works the Not in
Log queue in the order received, unsolicited e-mails waste our time and
will not be processed.
I'll be posting some photographs on the website. We're disappointed
that the major conventions have been canceled, and hope that the worst
of Coronavisus comes to an end soon. We're still planning Friedrichshafen
in late June, maybe that one will happen.
Last I talked with Tim he's making good progress with Not in Log issues,
and is regularly uploading LoTW, although I did see he had a computer
failure and acquired a new machine.
We appreciate the kind words from the Group and in personal e-mails
from the community.
Many of you have 'suggested' the next DX-pedition location, we've
already had those discussions before and during VP8PJ.
73, GS K5GS"

The only problem I could see would be gettin' somebody into the 911 Ctr?? Was gonna ask y'all if you thought we could get in & whether y'all wanted to do the Survey or postpone it till next month.

IF y'all don't wanna try to finish the Survey, I'm gonna do this NVIS Day and wondered if y'all wanted me to go to any particular place in the county to set-up for this test.

What better way to practice self-quarantine or social isolation than operating NVIS from your QTH.

Update RE: Requests for information re: COVID-19 Updates

Mark Austin - KN4KTZ
 

All;

   An official update that I can share on the subject.

 

At Wellstar, the health and safety of our patients, team members, and communities is our top priority. We can confirm that we are treating patients diagnosed with COVID -19, but out of respect for our patients and privacy laws, we cannot comment on the specifics regarding location or the condition of patients. We can confirm we are following the protocols and recommendations set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health authorities – including discharging positive patients who are stable and do not need inpatient care. We encourage the public to review the CDC’s guidelines about COVID-19 symptoms and self-care, so we can continue to test and treat our most vulnerable patients.

 

Below please find some basic facts about COVID-19:

·         There is no treatment available, most people simply get better over time

·         In most cases, people who have COVID-19 are asked to stay home for 14 days

·         Visiting a healthcare provider could infect others and put patients at risk for infection

·         Patients must meet specific criteria to be considered for COVID-19 testing

·         A positive test may not change your treatment plan or require hospitalization

 

 

 

I also encourage you to read this article, if you haven’t seen it:

https://the-grip.net/2020/03/17/there-is-no-spalding-county-covid-19-case-dph-epidemiologist/

 

 

All the best,

Subject: [**WARNING** EXTERNAL MAIL] [BC-ARES] Requests for information re: COVID-19 Updates

 

There are understandably some questions and concern regarding the current COVID-19 situation.  Please understand that, at this time, I cannot comment on whether or not either of our hospitals have treated any patients with COVID-19.  What I am happy to share is that both of our hospitals are well prepared to provide the assessment and treatment needed, while safeguarding both our staff and the public. We have closely monitored the situation as it has developed, and invested substantial resources to educate, train and equip our staff.  You may recall that both of our hospitals participated in a large-scale Ebola exercise this past November; we did quite well.  This recent training and education effort has provided significant dividends, in that it prepared our staff for the proper protocols in treating a patient with a Highly Infectious Disease. I can assure you that treating COVID-19 is nowhere near as challenging as handling a patient with Ebola. Both of our hospitals remain committed to meeting the healthcare needs of our communities while maintaining the highest safety precautions as promulgated by the CDC and DPH (Georgia Department of Public Health). Testing is available for those who meet the designated criteria.

 

Following CDC and DPH guidelines, both of our hospitals have adopted new visitor policies for the response. These policies are designed to protect patients, visitors, staff and our communities. Signs are posted at the hospital entrances with the latest policy information.

 

Attached you will find the latest guidance regarding testing, just published this a.m. from the DPH District Health Director. I’ve also attached the latest DPH guidance for older adults. As the District Health Director states, if you think you may meet the criteria for COVID-19, please ensure you contact our ER first- we have protocols to properly screen you without you entering the Waiting Room and potentially placing others in the community at risk.

 

We should all be prudent but not paranoid regarding COVID-19. Standard, time-proven public health protocols still apply and remain quite effective:

 

      

 

 

 

As always, we at Spalding Regional and Sylvan Grove Hospitals appreciate your willingness and availability to assist our facilities and the communities we serve.  With ARES activated state-wide, the emergency communication support you provide, coupled with your experience and skill sets, are appreciated now more than ever.

 

For an operational readiness update, a dipole HF antenna was installed atop the SRH antenna on Saturday.  We tested it during the Saturday evening Hospital Net and had no issues communicating with Net Control in Savannah- connection was 5:5.

All the best,

To all,

Since I am now teleworking, I read the ARRL newsletter and found a very good article and link for the use of WINLINK. It is a series of videos on youtube that explains the use of the system in short takes. The full article and link is below.

Winlink Videos Help New and Experienced Operators

To help Winlink's novices overcome software fright when operating Winlink Express for the first time, San Diego, California ARES created a series of 24 short videos to help newcomers find the right button to click in the Express software menus. The topics of the short videos range in difficulty from simple, such as sending a Winlink email to a Gmail account, to challenging, such as using software tools to locate a neighbor operating in the vicinity.

The 24 videos range in length from one to five minutes and cover the tasks that a deployed operator might be expected to accomplish in the field.

The video content gives operators experience sending messages with and without attachments such as ICS forms. The videos provide tips for creating neatly-formatted, automatically-generated ICS Form 309 Communication Logs for submission to served agency officials.

The San Diego ARES Winlink video playlist is open to the public and can be viewed here. Just in case https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-7mirT-kjfs84FQzLr-qv066Kl94rtYM .

FW: Best I have read!

CONFESSIONS OF A PEDIATRICIAN

I have a confession to make.

I was wrong.

Very wrong.

A week ago, someone asked about COVID-19 and how serious it was. I quickly said, “Wash your hands, it can be serious in elderly, but it’s a lot ‘like the flu’ and there is a lot of media hype”.

Prior to that, I had read a little about the outbreak in China, heard about the quarantine implemented there, but had seen lots of reassuring information about children.

I have children.
My patients are children.

So that is where my mind naturally goes. It seemed children were either not sick or very mildly ill with this virus. I saw the reports about elderly patients becoming ill and even some dying due to this illness, but in my ‘pediatric brain’ that was very similar to influenza. I was not alarmed. And I’ve been to China-I’ve seen the crowds and the markets and the differences in culture. Our systems are very different. Other viruses in the past that have had outbreaks there didn’t become world wide issues, so I assumed even though we may have a few cases, it wouldn’t impact us here much.

Then--Italy.

I will never claim to know everything or be unwilling to learn something new or have my mind changed. So, I kept reading. As soon as I learned more about Italy early last week, my opinion did a 180. I began to grasp the issues:
-this is more easily transmitted than flu
-it is indeed more deadly
-the rapid progression through the community causes medical facilities to be overwhelmed

I read accounts of physicians being forced to make decisions that none of us signed up to make.
-Which of these patients gets care?
-Which is essentially: which of these patients is going to die?

That is NOT why any physician goes into medicine. We all want to help people get well. That is an unfair decision to place in the hands of a physician---or any human, really.

The more I read, the more I understood.

My children, my patients are still at minimal risk for severe illness from this.

For that I am incredibly, unspeakably grateful.

HOWEVER, they are potentially a large part of the spread of this virus to those who are at risk--their grandparents, their older neighbors, teachers and older friends.

And now, my response has changed:

We must take this seriously. I’ve had people asking me about how to navigate this. Time is critical. TODAY is critical. There are lots of articles circulating with great information and data about spread and how to slow it down, I won’t rehash that here, but I do want to give some advice.

Staying home is really, REALLY, REALLY important. We can not only look to history--1918 flu in different cities that had different responses--but we can actually look to the future.

Italy and other European countries are about 1-2 weeks ahead of us.

This is not an unknown at this point. If we do nothing, if we continue business as usual, we can see what WILL happen. More cases, then clusters, then exponential growth. We are already seeing it happen here. Hospitals will be overwhelmed and people will die.

Period.

Grandparents, older neighbors, teachers and older friends--will die.

So, my advice now is...still...wash your hands.

But also, stay home.

Don’t go to that play date.
Don’t go to the local trampoline park. Or Chuck E Cheese.
Don’t go to sporting events. Or dance rehearsal.
Or the movies. Or the restaurants. Or…..anywhere that isn’t essential.

Now that many are out of school or soon to be, remember this isn't a vacation, this is a pandemic. It is a national and local public health emergency. We are living in a time that is unlike anything most of us have ever experienced.

Now, don’t get me wrong--remember, I have kids. This is NOT fun. No one is excited. I’ve already had hard discussions with my kids, there have been some tears about cancelled events. Disappointments about things they’ve worked really hard to prepare for. A freshman year of college abruptly ended. I feel especially bad for seniors in high school/college. And there are, of course, larger economic impacts that we are all going to have to figure out together as this progresses.

But, it’s a great lesson.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

If it was attacking children at the rate we've seen in the elderly, we would all be hunkered down immediately. But, it’s a tough pill to swallow when you or your children aren’t going to be affected or become very sick, but thinking for the greater good, the community, those at risk, and even the physicians and nurses caring for those who do become ill is something we all have to sacrifice for.

So--let’s all think about it from a different perspective. Reframe. The ‘silver lining’.

I’m always frustrated that family meals don’t happen very often any more. Too many practices, rehearsals and meetings.

Well, now we can all sit and enjoy a meal and each other’s company.
Because we have nowhere we have to go!

We can read a book out loud together.
We can watch a movie on TV in the middle of the afternoon.
Go on a walk.
Play in our backyard.
Bake.
Do some crafting.
Clean our rooms. :)
Plant something and watch it grow.
We can just be…..together.

Social distancing, flattening the curve….all the buzz terms.

I'm under no delusion that it will be sunshine and roses.... I've already had to referee at my house.

But it doesn’t have to be all bad.
Let’s take it seriously for the good of everyone.
But we can also try to see the unexpected blessings in what we are being ‘forced’ to do.

Wash your hands-at home. Stay well--and hopefully sane. ;)

"I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine, and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence." ~Martin Luther, 1527

Requests for information re: COVID-19 Updates

Mark Austin - KN4KTZ
 

There are understandably some questions and concern regarding the current COVID-19 situation.  Please understand that, at this time, I cannot comment on whether or not either of our hospitals have treated any patients with COVID-19.  What I am happy to share is that both of our hospitals are well prepared to provide the assessment and treatment needed, while safeguarding both our staff and the public. We have closely monitored the situation as it has developed, and invested substantial resources to educate, train and equip our staff.  You may recall that both of our hospitals participated in a large-scale Ebola exercise this past November; we did quite well.  This recent training and education effort has provided significant dividends, in that it prepared our staff for the proper protocols in treating a patient with a Highly Infectious Disease. I can assure you that treating COVID-19 is nowhere near as challenging as handling a patient with Ebola. Both of our hospitals remain committed to meeting the healthcare needs of our communities while maintaining the highest safety precautions as promulgated by the CDC and DPH (Georgia Department of Public Health). Testing is available for those who meet the designated criteria.

 

Following CDC and DPH guidelines, both of our hospitals have adopted new visitor policies for the response. These policies are designed to protect patients, visitors, staff and our communities. Signs are posted at the hospital entrances with the latest policy information.

 

Attached you will find the latest guidance regarding testing, just published this a.m. from the DPH District Health Director. I’ve also attached the latest DPH guidance for older adults. As the District Health Director states, if you think you may meet the criteria for COVID-19, please ensure you contact our ER first- we have protocols to properly screen you without you entering the Waiting Room and potentially placing others in the community at risk.

 

We should all be prudent but not paranoid regarding COVID-19. Standard, time-proven public health protocols still apply and remain quite effective:

 

      

 

 

 

As always, we at Spalding Regional and Sylvan Grove Hospitals appreciate your willingness and availability to assist our facilities and the communities we serve.  With ARES activated state-wide, the emergency communication support you provide, coupled with your experience and skill sets, are appreciated now more than ever.

 

For an operational readiness update, a dipole HF antenna was installed atop the SRH antenna on Saturday.  We tested it during the Saturday evening Hospital Net and had no issues communicating with Net Control in Savannah- connection was 5:5.

All the best,
