    Due to high wind possibilities, PG&E PSPS (Public Safety Power Shutoff) events are planned
    for 23 counties in CA on Oct. 11th and Oct. 12th.

    Please listen for “On Battery” announcements from repeaters that are likely to be affected
    by these planned power outages and limit talk times to help preserve battery usage during this time.

    We have also created a one second “long tone” which will activate when CARLA is in
    power conservation mode due to multiple repeaters on battery backup.
    You’ll hear this tone when you unkey as a reminder to keep it short.
