System 35: Oakland
Details for System 35
About the System:

CARLA 35 resides along with CARLA 5 (UHF) as well as the primary Echo-
IRLP Node & RoIP link to CARLA 13 which serves as the Shasta Ring Hub.
This is the primary site for the greater San Francisco Bay Area.


CARLA 35 was previously owned by Roger Spindler, WA6AFT (SK) and
graciously donated to CARLA for integration into our network after it
needed a new home. It has been a excellent replacement due to CARLA 5's
reduced coverage from the PAVE PAWS issue.
