Geez... As usual it seems officials will lie to cover their ass. Sounds right out of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. Nobody to take responsibility or do anything productive...

I grew up in Chico, 18 miles north of the Oroville Dam, so upstream😀. We used to take field trips in school to the dam when it was being built in the early 60s. Since then I have run Telecom cables inside of the dam itself. If it ever breaks is going to be a big deal with a lot of life/property loss. I never understood why the emergency spillway was made out of dirt. It just stands to reason that if water went over it it would wash the earthen made dam away and breach the dam, and I dont have a engeneering degree:-) I guess they never though they would have to use it.

Time to dig out your low VHF gear - Sporadic E season has arrived. I see contacts happening right across Europe on 6M.

I knew something odd was happening when I was getting good signal reports into the UK on 20M!

Yes, I need to try my PRC-352 again, but 6m FM is hard, too few people using it...
