CARLA 8 Link PL changes to 151.4 Hz
Last updated on September 10, 2009 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
It has been a while since we had to change a PL and we know that a few of you need some more aggravation so we decided it was time once again to pull out the programming cables, laptops, manuals and patience and change one PL for CARLA 8.
The existing link PL is 179.9 Hz and the new link PL will most likely be 151.4 Hz barring any unforseen issues.
The reason for the change is that 179.9 is a third harmonic of 60 Hz and there is a lot of electrical noie at the site from a utility pole that not only causes issues to weak signals but falses the PL decoder for the link as well.
This can cause falsing under certain situations so since we need to go back up to tie up some loose ends, we will also make this change.
