Apparently last night storm knocked out power to the state system . I'm not able to receive the CC . Every time that area receives bad weather it knocks out power to the tower .

Did the technician switch over to the new system ? .

I noticed last night that Vinita (1.15) was coming in as a P25 site. I monitored for quite a while and found the frequencies do indeed have P25 traffic. The P25 control channel is showing Miami a neighbor (1.17) CC 859.4375. From my location I cannot receive Miami. Based on this, it is quite possible that Miami is now a P25 site.

Not sure what is going on at the Miami tower.

I took a drive up there this morning and the Vinita site is still showing Miami P25 site 17 CC 859.43750. In Miami parked on 859.43750 there is a carrier with what appears to be no modulation. I went through all RR channels and no other CC on any of the other frequencies, P25 or SZ.

Does anyone know if the Miami Tower is still down? I left Carthage and drove down I-44 to Claremore today and I did not receive anything off of that Miami tower. Both systems, OKWIN Motorola and OKWIN P25 are being used depending on where you are at. I had traffic on the P25 system off of the following sites - Tulsa, Jay, Langley, and Owasso. I had traffic on the Motorola system off of the following sites - Tulsa and Pryor.
