Nevada ring on back-up link
Last updated on August 22, 2012 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
Due to some problems on the new wireline circuit feeding the Nevada ring (at CARLA 18's site), there has been a lot of falsing of the PTT circuit which in turn was creating a lot of kerchunks on the entire Nevada ring (CARLA 18,21,22,23,24). We've bypassed the circuit and reverted to the back-up RF link in the interim. Please keep in mind there is some added delay on the back-up link so leave enough time after you key up before speaking so you don't cut off your first word(s). The local repeater at CARLA 18 may still experience the problem (kerchunks) but the rest of the ring should not.
