    Multiple site visits, repairs and upgrades

    Over the last month or so there have been several site visits performed which included multiple
    repairs and projects that were completed. The following is a brief run-down of what’s been done
    so far:

    CARLA 13/Shasta Lake-New SCom 7330 repeater controller replaced the existing Link-Comm DSP-404
    controller. The issue was causing the hub port to become inoperative cutting off CARLA 20 & 28
    from the network.

    CARLA 9/Modesto-repaired intermittent DC power connection causing repeater to go off the air

    CARLA 17/Sonora- A New link route and equipment package was added. This allows us to route
    CARLA 15/Fresno through CARLA 17 to the Mt. Vaca hub and greatly improve the link signal
    reliability. An LVD was installed, battery plant tested and a new software upgrade was
    performed on the repeater controller. There is now an extra link hop in the path to/from CARLA
    15 but the trade-off seems worth it so far.
    We will also be able to switch between this primary link path for CARLA 15 or the old one as a
    back-up if needed.
