Carla 9 back on the air after cyclone storm
Last updated on January 13, 2023 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | Permalink
CARLA 9 is back on the air after its tower and several others were twisted and dropped from some freak,
tornado like winds. It may not be exactly the same as it was but seems to be doing a good job so far.
The original posting:
The weather has taken its toll on Carla. System 9 is off the air due to the recent rains and cyclone storm.
The tower that the main antenna was mounted on has fallen, destroying not only the tower but several
antennas and coax. Full damage assessment is underway thus a repair time is unknown and still TBD.
On the positive side, the site power is also out which probably saved the PA from transmitting into the dirt.
