I just watched the K6UDA video an hour or so ago and don't recall any explicit mention of ARES/RACES ties being severed - it's mostly about the Shingletown repeater situation along with a dose of UDA's frustration over the whole thing. This is not the first I've heard of difficulty with state owned tower resources - Tom Preston, the speaker discussing AREDN at last month's club meeting mentioned that state towers are now managed by a different division within the state and are now considered to be real estate assets that need to monetized. That sounds like the main issue here. Of course, monetizing an asset is fine for commercial purposes... but it'd obviously be nice if non-profit community service organizations received a little due consideration as well. Typical misguided bureaucrats, IMO.
