System 36: Willows
Details for System 36
About the System:

This system was installed as a fill-in for the loss of UHF coverage in the North Sacramento Valley due to the PAVE PAWS radar system @ Beale AFB. The system is only transmitting 5 Watts and favors a pattern towards the NW and a null towards Sonora.


CARLA 36 is numbered as such because it is located at CARLA 6's site and was meant to be a easy reminder where the system is located.
