    CARLA system 25, (444.325+ Local PL:100Hz, Link PL:173.8Hz) has been completely rebuilt from the ground up and now conforms to our new installation standards including new controller, link radios, battery system, antennas, filtering & generator back-up power. The system was originally integrated into our network last year from the Oregon Connection. It used to be their southern most site.

    The site covers the greater Redding area and south towards Corning and beyond. Although it is considered to be part of the 'Shasta Ring' it does not go through the Shasta hub. It ties directly to the Vaca hub which would offer some coverage if we were to lose our connection to the Shasta hub and the other systems running off of it. This site also acts as our back-up relay point between the Vaca hub and the Shasta hub in case we were to lose our normal connection to/from the Shasta systems. Unfortunately, the system has been reduced in power to help mitigate any signal getting to BAFB.
