North County Topo Map

You can see that the Salinas Valley has very good line-of-sight up and down the valley, but VHF-UHF signals from the coastal areas to the interior of the Salinas Valley are inpossible without the use of mountain top repeaters. Even with repeaters you still have sheltered valleys within the coastal mountain range that makes it difficult for communications. For this reason we are hoping in the future to have mobile repeaters that we can move, as needed, to an area which will provide the best communications to the served agencies.

South County Topo Map

In the south county the problem gets even worse. Now we are dealing with predominantly mountainous regions that make it very difficult for communications. For this reason we are experimenting with NVIS (Near Vertical Incident Skywave) propagation using HF frequencies to see if we can have short range communications even into the sheltered valleys.
