[aprssig] APRN news from Dayton!

My community of around 100,000 folks is split into villages. Each 
village has a few CERTs. Our operating plan is for the CERTs to handle 
their neighborhood needs and then meet at a village muster point. A ham 
would meet them at the muster point to relay information back to the 
community EOC.

A further thought is to take damage pictures with cell phones or 
cameras. They would be transferred to a laptop / net book and sent back 
to the EOC.

I haven't looked into how to do the picture transfer. One possibility is 
EasyPAL on 70 cm to attain a higher transfer rate.

Just thought I'd toss this into the discussion since it is a viable use 
of digital cameras for damage assessment. A base assumption is that the 
internet will generally be down, although the EOC may have a satellite 
or a hardened connection.

Additional thought on how to handle this would be appreciated.
