System 33: Gualala
Details for System 33
About the System:

This system is located above the coastal town of Gualala (pronouced by
locals as "Wahlala"). Gualala is the southern most coastal town within
Mendocino County just north of the Sonoma County line. It helps to fill
some dead areas not covered by CARLA 3 or any other systems.

CARLA 33 is at the end of a segment of the network and connects to the
of the network via a link path to CARLA 3's site and then from there to
CARLA 26 then the Vaca Hub and then on to other sites & hubs. So, make
you leave enough key-up time before talking so you can be heard from one
ond of the network to another. The path between CARLA 3<->33 is not line
site so there may be varying anounts of path noise depending on time of
and year.


This repeater sits just a few miles west of the San Andreas Fault line
is located in a canyon to the east of the site. It will usually lose
commercial power several times during the winter storm season and has
450Ah of battery back-up power.
