Since the storms went through the Lexington area last Thursday night, I have been unable to receive the Lexington EDACS system at my home which is about 5 or 6 miles SW of their main site on the UK campus. Even on my antenna up about 40 feet, I can barely hear them on my Pro-2052. Their signals are totally "gone" on my Pro-92 and Pro-94 with their 800 mHz rubber duckies antennas at home.

I can still hear them at my office which is only about a mile from the UK campus with my Pro-92 and 94. I suspect their power amplifier took a lightning "hit" and they are limping along with just low Drive power. Is anyone else experiencing this and/or have any information?

Hi Tom... I am hearing very little from the Lexington TRS in Woodford Co... didn't noticed Friday early morning because I was mostly listening to Lex PD as they dealt with the stand-off southside...

There is definitely something wrong with the system. Either a lightning hit Thursday night or antenna damage. I was able to pick it up within a mile of UK (my office) but outside of New Circle Road, I can't hear it...even with antenna up about 40 feet. At first I thought I had a scanner that had gone sour, but all three of my trunkers at the same time??? Not likely. The system is definitely not getting out right now.
