I watched this, and haven't checked it out as to truthfulness or how

true), it sounds serious for California Amateurs.
This is a 13 minute video about this:
I found an incomplete URL for the original letter on the video comments,
but got a 404 error.
Has this affected any of the emergency services provided by SBARC hams

There is a rebuttal in the comments maybe 8 or so comments down from the

This from the ARRL Southwestern Division e-Communicator:
"In 2020, the Yuma Hamfest, on February 14 and 15, will again be the
ARRL Southwestern Division Convention. This is the convention that has
rotated through the sections, and was conventionally held in September.
There will not be another Southwestern Division convention in September
in 2019 as no other groups have stepped up to sponsor such an event."
