Mt. Vaca Hub antenna maintenance this Saturday
Last updated on July 23, 2020 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
We will be taking the primary Mt. Vaca hub off-line for a couple of hours this Saturday in the
late morning/early afternoon while we perform some antenna maintenance. This will have a major
effect on linking all of the network together and only allow certain segments to talk to each
other while the majority of the regions and repeaters will be isolated. Weâ€™ll make announcements
over the air both pre and post interruption of service. Besides not hearing any inbound network
traffic the only other clue may be the lack of the extra courtesy tone â€˜beepâ€™ that you may hear
after keying up with the link PL. That is created from the hub keying up and coming back through
all of the repeaters. All the repeaters should continue to work for the most part but with limited
or no linking capabilities depending on where you might be in the system. We will try and keep the
downtime to a minimum in case of any need for network wide communication that may arise.
