The Redding (RDG) Packet node 145.050 is now a portion of the WARREA Packet System. The Frequency will remain the same there will be no changes to the operation in the short term. The Node is currently offline and WARREA is working to access the equipment to assess the condition and make repairs. US Park service controls access to the mountain top and weather will be a factor to us reaching the site. Please stand by and we will keep you informed via this website and the WARREA Facebook Page.
