I've heard that Phil Condict was first in to the KNCO station to get the coverage going. Kudos to him and the rest of your fine staff. KNCO, backed up by a cadre of very competent local ham operators, are very effective in emergency situations such as this.

We residents in Western Nevada County are blessed in many ways, including having having Cal Fire based here, complemented by fine cooperation amongst the other First Responders and law enforcement agencies.
