CARLA 21 On the Air
Last updated on October 21, 2013 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
We are pleased to announce the re-commissioning of CARLA 21 (440.750+) in Reno.
This repeater has been off the air for almost 1.5 years and we finally ended up moving it to a new
site on Lower Peavine Peak. The new site is at 8,000’ which is about 2,500’ higher than the previous
site on Red Peak.
Coverage is similar to the previous site but additionally it sees a longer way out Interstate 80 both
to the West & East. There is some shadowing directly below the peak in the Sun Valley area and in
building penetration may not be as good in some places as it was and yet better in other spots.
A big thanks goes out to all parties involved with making this happen with such short notice and
getting it installed before the snows hit.
