Emergency Communications Changes in Oregon

The state of Oregon, USA have decided to cut ties with the Oregon Amateur Radio Service.

The state, which suffers from natural disasters including major earthquakes, appear to have no back-up communication with the removal of the amateur radio community.

A breakdown in the relationship appears to be centred around the issue of the state of the broadcasting equipment and a lack of control in relation to preparation and deployment.
