I agree that while this is not the forum for local government issues, I’m glad it was posted. We in the state of Oregon probably would not have heard about this issue. Thankfully the Oregon leaders realize the reliability of the ham repeaters and their roll in times of backup communication needs vs a system that is over priced and not reliable.
Thanks to the group for their time, I read every post on this site, lots of great information I’ve got a UBITX ver. 5 I’m playing with. Keep up the great posts

That's OK.
So long as it remains civil.

It's specific to one state of one country, and there are literally dozens of more suitable venues than this for any discussion of this subject.
How does the policy of CalFire in California, USA Regarding repeater space on public land n the state of California impact the Lithuanian trying to assemble an HF station based on a uBitx or Bitx40?
It doesn't.
