NETWORK FIRE UPDATE

BOTH CARLA 27 (Quincy, CA) and CARLA 18 (Topaz Lake, NV) are on stable generator back-up power
now. We can lift the restricted mode we were in and thank everyone for their cooperation and
understanding. Both sites were in the middle of their respective fire zones (Dixie and Tamarack
fires) and both sites experienced some burn over on their respective mountain tops. We tried hard
to keep both sites on the air by asking users to greatly limit transmit times to keep battery run
time up in case the sites were needed for local comms. Fire crews worked hard to keep all the
comm sites from burning for which we are very grateful.
