California Club Helps Repeater Rebuilding Effort

The Mount Diablo Amateur Radio Club's Disaster Recovery Program has made a $1000 grant to the California Amateur Radio Linking Association (CARLA) to help rebuild one of its repeater sites that was destroyed by wildfires in 2018. 

CARLA operates a linked network of repeaters that covers much of California and western Nevada. According to the ARRL Letter, the network is an important link in providing reliable communications during wide-scale emergencies, such as wildfires.
