This is a message that we received from Gordon Boettger. We feel that this is very important and decided to post this on the homepage.
Here is Gordo's message:
Just spent the day at OAK ARTCC. They keep emphasizing that for safety reasons all gliders "should" (highly recommended) squawk around the RNO area. They said that chunk of airspace still scares the hell out of them. They mentioned that they're still seeing a lot of nonsquawkers out there. When they're dealing with nonsquawking targets that suddenly disappear from their screen near an arriving/departing aircraft, it not only makes them really nervous
