‘The State of California has not made any determination we can find ‘that Ham Radio [is] no longer a benefit,’” Pacific Division Director Jim Tiemstra, K6JAT, is quoted on the Sacramento Valley Section website. “What happened is that CAL FIRE has transferred responsibility for its communications sites to its property management department. That department has the task of evaluating each site, its condition, use, and tenants. If a repeater not known to be associated with the emergency management function of a local jurisdiction is found in a CAL FIRE vault, the default action is to move it out or subject it to commercial rental rates.”’ So that process has already started - nothing to see here, move along. Don’t be surprised if more emails a la Pisi will be sent out. Note that she didn’t ask them to justify their use of the rack space, she just told them to pay up or get out, as ham radio has no benefit to Cal Fire.
