At 5:13 PM a CHP El Cajon dispatcher put out "Just for info, the radio tower at Lyons Peak (on?) Tecate apparently is going down, we may lose radio comms, we are okay for now". Haven't heard any updates on this since.

They were also running the Valley Fire command channel on CNF Forest Net Tone 9 which is on Lyons peak, and transitioned everyone to Tone 7 Los Pinos because "Tone 9 was going down". At first I thought they were referring to fearing that the Valley Fire was going to threaten the repeater site, but after hearing some SDG&E traffic and radio tech traffic on the RCS I think it might actually be due to a power outage to the site.

Just after midnight, I lost the South Zone in all radios, for about 30 minutes.
West kept working just fine.
