System 29 on the air
Last updated on April 17, 2011 by The C.A.R.L.A. Team | This article is Archived | Permalink
We are pleased to announce the latest addition to CARLA.
System 29 located in San Luis Obispo, CA.
Frequency & PL information:
Local PL: 100.0Hz
Link PL: 162.2Hz
CARLA 29 is located on Tassajero Peak along the Cuesta Ridge which is located to the west of the Cuesta Pass on Hwy 101. It overlooks San Luis Obispo and surrounding communities. This system has been several years in the making.
From the North along US-101 coverage starts at about Camp Roberts and continues south along the 101 corridor all the way to Santa Maria and just North of Los Alamos. It covers to the West along Hwy 1 from San Simeon to the North to parts of Lompoc & Vandenberg AFB to the South.
When visiting the greater San Luis Obispo area including Cal Poly, Paso Robles, Cambria, Hearst Castle, Pismo Beach, Morrow Bay, Avila Beach and much more, CARLA System 29 should provide ample coverage.
Additionally, several weeks ago a major upgrade at CARLA 4 was performed to allow for the back haul of link traffic from CARLA 29 into the rest of the network. Be aware that you will need to leave enough time for the links to open up from one end of the network to the other. For instance, from CARLA 29 (SLO) to CARLA 5 (Oakland) involves 4 hops. From CARLA 29 to CARLA 28 (Mt. Shasta) requires 6 hops.
A special thanks to all those who were involved with making this project happen.
