Hi. My name is Michael Enyeart (pronounced "in-yert") I began my telecommunication career in the US Army Signal Corps from 1972-75 where I repaired tropospheric scatter microwave, multiplexing, and encryption systems. I joined the Indiana University (Bloomington) professional staff on Halloween 1977. I have worked as a television broadcast engineer for WTIU and WTTV, manager of the Kelley School of Business computing center, manager of campus data communications, and technical advisor to the IT AVP. During that time, I helped start up CICnet (regional IP network), continued strategic planning of university data networks, and managed a joint venture with IBM, called the Electronic School District project.
Around 1990, I became assistant director for university telecommunications and then assistant director for campus communication (telephone) services. Today I work as a senior technical advisor at Indiana University Information Technology Services where IU operates world-class networks through the Global Network Operations Center. My current professional interest is IP network convergence and strategic planning. I have contributed to many projects, such as the Mobility Plan, the $170M Network Master Plan, document and content management systems, virtualization, campus cellular infrastructure, and emergency communications. I'm 38 years into a 40 year career at IU and still having a blast.
Education, memberships, and other skills
I have a BA in Computer Science from Indiana University. I am also a graduate of the US Army Signal School. I hold both commercial and amateur general class FCC licenses. Professionally, I am active with Educause, Internet2, ACUTA, and the IEEE. My communities of interest includes local Skywarn, Amateur Radio Emergency Service, and the Amateur Radio Relay League. I am a member of American Legion Post 18, Monroe County Repeater Association, K9IU Radio Club, and Bloomington Amateur Radio Club.
I have significant experience with military and civil command and control communication systems, and with weather RADAR systems. I hold twelve FEMA certifications in emergency management, including Incident Command System 400 certification. I am a skilled ESF2 operator and very experienced network control station.
Community and civil service
In May 2014 I was appointed Skywarn coordinator and the Official Emergency Station (OES) for Monroe County, Indiana. The mighty South Central Indiana 64 (146.64 - 136.5) is my AR home. I am also active with other Bloomington community volunteer activities, including providing Hospice care for patients and their families.
I blog extensively in several newspapers about social justice, politics, psychology, spirituality, and public policy. I am founder of a new national political movement called The Evidence Party, which seeks to transform American politics by changing political debate from ideology to evidence, using new media to bypass mass media, and creating an interior political movement within all existing political parties.
Come rain or shine (but not heavy lightening), I try to hike an hour every day in Griffy woods with my K9 friend, Calvin. I am Calvin's pet primate. IUB (IU-Bloomington) is my passion.
73 de K9IUB.
