C.A.R.L.A. 3/6/10 Restored to Service
Last updated on January 16, 2010 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
C.A.R.L.A. 3, 6, and 10 were restored to full service on Saturday, Jan 16th, thanks to the hard work of two separate field teams.
The faulty main link radio at C.A.R.L.A. 6 was replaced and other equipment repaired, and some programming tweaks were implemented. This has restored a more robust path to and from C.A.R.L.A. 3, which should mean much clearer audio between it and the rest of the network.
It was determined (as we expected) that the main cabinet fuse at C.A.R.L.A. 10 had blown. The fuse was replaced, and an impulse dampening device was installed, which hopefully will keep this from happening again in the future. Also, due to further PAVE PAWS issues, transmit power for the system was reduced further.
We would like to thank all our users again for bearing with us while we worked to solve these problems.
