How does this relate to BITx and those of us outside the USA?

I disagree Arv. I started a new thread specifically so I wouldn't tread on an existing post and members could judge their interest in the topic. Personally, I think every ham should care about the topic, but some won't, perhaps because they see it as a State problem and, hence, not affecting them. As I recall, HOA antenna restrictions started out the same way, and soon spread throughout the US. Anyway, I think my subject line clearly stated the thread's content and is more informative than a generic "info-topic" subject line would be. I think the additional details makes it easier for someone to simply erase the post if they're not interested.

Occasionally there are actions that have great potential to affect ham radio as a whole
but start as small local changes.  Maybe the topic for posts about these events should
be labeled "info-topic" so that those with very narrow fields of interest can avoid reading

We do have quite a few "off-topic" posts from time to time.  Maybe the solution would
be for moderators to allow the particular topic to run for a few days and then lock the
topic so that no more re-posts on that topic would be allowed.  This seems reasonable
but does potentially block later readers from commenting (good?, bad?).

As an international mail list (reflector) threads like this don't belong here.

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?
