• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Does anyone know if any sites are down in the Lafayette area? (Scott, Abbeville, Lafayette, Jeanerette, etc)

Hey TeeBee, I was in Lafayette area all day Thursday and Friday morning. I did not see anything wrong with any of the sites you mentioned. Lafayette, Scott, Opelousas, Acadia, etc. all seemed to be working OK. I did run Pro96com for you and noticed Lafayette and Scott were using alternate CCs though. Could that be part of your issue?

By the way. If anybody is monitoring flood coms, LWIN state coordinate call talk groups are seeing lots of use (as expected) along with local talk groups. Now is the time to pick up on little used talk groups.

I did come back through Wednesday and did get Laf and Acadia using the Alt channels.For some reason last Sunday I tried them and did not work. Maybe i did something wrong.

Reason i asked about site outage, my brother lives in between NI and Laf and his xts3000 was showing site trunking and not picking up any thing. My thinking was a site nearby was down for some reason

I suppose it is possible that a site flooded. They are supposed to be high enough to not flood but how high is high. Also, some power outages were around. I do not know how long these sites run on generator power. I know I saw on TV and heard on radio that New Iberia had about 19" rain LOTS.
