CARLA 22 Link restored
Last updated on November 11, 2009 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
After a 22 hour day, 13 of which included driving ~700 miles and making 3 pots of coffee on site, CARLA 22 is linked once again into the rest of the network.
Welcome back to our Hawthorne & Mammoth delegates.
Apparently, the site was also on battery power for several days during the last week while the link was down.
The main link antenna shooting to/from CARLA 18's site was bent down several degrees and either had an open or short internally. This was a very stout Telewave model but most likely suffered a heavy chunk of ice smacking it from above.
There were also firmware upgrades made to the controller (which went well) and subsequent re-programming (which didn't go so well) and suffice it to say, had a 'few snags'.
