    165 Repeater Removed from Scan Plan

    

11-29-2020 SER Scan Plan Modifified - 

THE STARC 165 repeater removed from SER Scan Plan.  

SER EMERGENCY NETS WILL NO LONGER BE HELD ON THE 165 REPEATER! 

THE STARC CLUB IS NO LONGER HELPING WITH THE SER PLAN. 

STARC OWNS THE 165 REPEATER AND HAS ADVISED THAT NON HAMS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO USE THE 165 REPEATER FOR EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS.  THIS MOST LIKELY IS A VIOLATION OF FCC RULES.

THE 165 REPEATER IS NOW FOR GENERAL HAMS TALK AND GENERAL HAM CHIT CHAT 24/7, WHICH RENDERS IS UNSUITABLE FOR EMERGENCY COMMUNCIATIONS MONITORING 24/7.  

THE STARC CLUB BOYCOTTED AN ACTUAL SHINGLETOWN WILDFIRE (I.E., MEMBERS HEARD THE REQUESTS FOR ASSISTANCE AND DID NOT RENDER ASSISTANCE.  

THE STARC CLUB IS BOYCOTTING SER PRACTICE SESSIONS. 

ANY HAM USING THE 760 REPEATER AND/OR 505 SIMPLEX IS REQUESTED TO FOLLOW SER PLAN AND PROCEDURES TO AVOID INTERFERENCE WITH THE SER EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS PLAN. 

MOREOVER, STARC IS NOT TO USE ANY SER PLAN PROCEDURES, METHODS OR ANY OTHER PLAN MATERIALS ON THE 165 REPEATER (OR OTHER STARC FREQUENCIES FOR ITS HAMS) SO AS TO AVOID INTERFERENCE AND CONFUSION WITH THE SER EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS PLAN.

Reasons for removing 165 repeater include: the President of STARC (W6IO - Dar Walker) reversed the 165 repeater policy and advised that non hams are no longer allowed to use the 165 repeater for emergency communications.  Such was in specific reference to, and as a result of,  the the Shingletown Fire Net  where two wildfires were burning at the same time in Shingletown (one at each end of Shingletown). During that emergency SER Fire Net, W6IO abandoned his position during the FIRE NET and a non Ham was needed for a short time to fill the position  of Monitoring Cal Fire Dispatch (such being the position that Dar Walker had abandoned with no other Hams being able to fill). 

Thereafter, the President of STARC (Dar Walker)  arbitrarily and capriciously reversed the long standing 8:00 O’CLOCK procedure which had been in place for the 165 repeater. These, and other egregious, inappropriate, .... actions by Dar Walker and STARC have rendered the 165 repeater unsuitable for emergency notification and alerting for 24/7 monitoring, as well as for emergency nets  (e.g., wildfires, evacuations, earthquake,  etc..).  The 165 repeater is now for general Ham talk and general Ham Chit Chat on a  24/7 basis.     Go HERE

THESE MATTERS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE FCC. FILING HAS BEEN MADE WITH THE FCC REGARDING NON HAM USE OF HAM FREQUENCIES DURING EMERGENCY SITUATIONS.  THESE MATTERS HAVE BEEN FILED BY A. NATHAN ZELIFF, ESQ., DEVELOPER OF THE SER PLAN.

As of 11/10/2020, Dar Walker and STARC are starting to set up some type of  emergency radio system.   Such will cause confusion during emergencies and destroy the smooth and well organized SER Plan. Mr. Walker's  effort started immediately following Dar Walker's attempt to seize control of the SER Plan. That effort started immediately after a Fire Net during which Mr. Walker had abandoned his position to talk on the phone about selling radio equipment. This was an Emergency Fire Net involving two fires burning in Shingletown. It was a High wind day, High Fire Danger and PG&E shut off power because of the high fire danger. During this event, Cal Fire was short of assets due to other fires.  Dar was on the phone discussing the sale of radio equipment (he later stated).  A non ham had to be used during the SER emergency fire net because Dar Walker abandoned his position and there were no other Hams available. Under the false and defamatory claim that such action in using a non ham was illegal, Dar Walker then first tried to hi-jack the SER Program,  and is now setting up his own "system". The FCC has been contacted by Nathan Zeliff, Attorney at Law, in these matters. Shingletown residents, please look at the Film about Paradise (below). Imagine if Shingletown were faced with such a situation.  The SER Program has worked very well as reported by residents of Shingletown and even Dar Walker himself has stated. But then,  Dar Walker decided he wanted to take over the SER Plan which he didn't build.  The Actions of Starc and Dar Walker jeopardize the safety of all Shingletown residents.  I have resigned from Starc. Hopefully, someone in Starc will recognize the dangerous condition they are creating and stop this madness.

BACKGROUND OF SER POLICY - NON HAMS:  THE HAM OPERATOR (DAR WALKER  W6IO) WHICH HAS CAUSED THIS ISSUE TO BECOME EXPLOSIVE IS THE VERY OPERATOR WHO ABANDONED HIS POST (TO DISCUSS THE SALE OF RADIO EQUIPMENT ON THE PHONE) DURING A DOUBLE WILD LAND FIRE EMERGENCY HAM NET IN SHINGLETOWN. NO OTHER HAMS WERE AVAILABLE TO FILL THE TACTICAL POST WHICH HAD BEEN ABANDONED BY THAT HAM. A NON HAM MONITORED CAL FIRE AND PROVIDED AN APPROXIMATE  4 SECOND FACTUAL REPORT AS TO THE INFORMATION REQUESTED BY FIRE CONTROL. THE HAM, WHO HAD ABANDONED HIS POST, LATTER REPORTED INTO THE FIRE NET AND PROVIDED A BOGUS REPORT TO FIRE CONTROL TO DISGUISE THAT HE HAD NOT BEEN DOING HIS JOB. HE COULD HAVE MERELY STATED HE WAS DISTRACTED, BUT CHOSE TO GIVE A BOGUS REPORT.
