Default New Orleans terrestrial repeater down?

I can't get a terrestrial signal today in New Orleans on my Starmate using either the car or home antenna. Anyone else in the Crescent City experience this?

Thanks,

Don

Yeah, it's been down since the big storm yesterday morning. I hope it comes back up soon.

Thanks. I just wanted to make sure that my Starmate wasn't going flaky or something.

Greetings from Chalmette!

I'm happy again. Now I have to put my home antenna in the rental car I'm driving now so I can truly be happy again.

I noticed that this morning. I wonder if it has anything to do with the rain yesterday?

I've asked several broadcast engineers that I know if they know where the repeater is located and nobody seems to know.

I heard that it's on top of One Shell Square.

It was back when I left for work at 5 this morning. No more overpass silence as I drive from Chalmette to the Superdome along Claiborne!
