Wildfire Fighters
Foresthill Fire Protection District in CA is currently fighting the Mosquito Wildfire in the mountains northeast of town. The Community operates a RadioSAFE Emergency Broadcast System that has recently been granted a waiver by the FCC to run at higher signal levels. Excellent timing. Operator Richard Hercules tells us that he has usable listening reports for 14 miles from the antenna, with 10 watts of transmitter power. The District is also streaming content to their website, where thousands tune in daily for updates. (See StreamCASTing.)

“We have started another grant cycle to expand our radio signal farther,” says Hercules. In emergencies, the FCC will often permit a higher powered transmitter substitution to boost coverage even more, based on the situation.
