2 new systems for beta testing
Last updated on September 1, 2009 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
Recently we added two new systems for beta testing on the network.
The first is located in the Carson City area at 7,440 foot elevation (CARLA 24, 443.325+, 127.3 PL). It is currently in stand alone mode and not linked into the network. It covers the Carson Valley very well, most parts of Reno and East into Fallon and other areas. It can also be worked in some areas of the Lake Tahoe Basin.
The second system is located west of Redding at 6,200 foot elevation (CARLA 25, 444.325+, 100.0 PL). It is currently linked in full time to the network and was actually the southern most repeater of the Oregon Connection system. Since its original link was diverted to tie in the OC to CARLA, it has been isolated for several months. Since it is surrounded by other CARLA machines in the area (13, 20, 6) it made sense to integrate into our network and make more efficient use of it. We are considering upgrading it to a dual PL system with battery back-up and also use it as the back-up RF link site instead of CARLA 20\'s site. It covers the northern part of the valley very well around Redding, Anderson, Red Bluff, Corning, etc
