Join us this Wednesday for a 2m net followed by our monthly meeting. This month’s presentation will be by Joe Moell, K0OV who will talk to us about an unusual underground power project.

Joe says, “Have you noticed the newer, taller power towers that go through the Puente Hills, then east across the 57 freeway and into Chino Hills? Why were they put in? Where does the power come from and where does it go? Why would Edison put parts of a 500-kilovolt power line underground, and how did they do that safely? I decided to try to find out, so I did some “digging” of my own. I didn’t become a power distribution expert, but during the July FRC online meeting, I’ll show you some things I discovered. If there’s time, I’ll tell you how to find out how reliable your home electrical service is, and how it is distributed from the six substations in Fullerton. If you don’t live in Fullerton, I’ll show how to find out about your city’s electrical distribution and reliability.”
