California Law Enforcement Radio System

A statewide, microwave-linked, VHF and UHF point-to-point radio System with 22 mountaintop transmitters in California, Nevada and Oregon. The CLERS is the Backbone for the State EAS and Backup to the CALWAS (California Warning System). Anyone having an appropriate receiver, in range of a CLERS mountaintop transmitter, may thus receive State EAS transmissions. IF it is equipped with an appropriate decoder it will not receive other transmissions carried by this system. There are no mobiles or portables on this system. Counties can be authorized to use the CLERS to enhance their EAS warning capability with State approval. Some counties have equipped all of their Broadcast stations (and other locations) with CLERS receivers/decoders to Flash warning broadcasts.
