Cameras are out due to problems with the dedicated Internet connection which handles all the webcam images. They hope to have them back online late tonite.  C.C.13

I was just told that the cams should be on soon. I hope so, after weeks of no cruise ships it would be nice to see the Island Princess transit tomorrow.

The Gatun Locks cams has been down since 10:50 a.m. I just got a email back." And today is a national holiday due to the passing of an ex-President.  No one’s there to resolve, it will have to wait until tomorrow, so sorry… "  Linda C.C.13

Is anyone else having trouble getting into the Canal cams? I just emailed the canal and was told that, ("I am verifying with our technicians, because everything is good locally.") C.C.13

Cape Cod 13 just got this from PanCanal.org but is not able to post right now.

"Linda, I cannot say when, but as I’ve been told by our Internet service providers, the webcams should be back online sometime today (but exactly when, don’t know). Sorry!"

 :thanks: Linda

Just got this, (I just asked our technicians and even though at this time, nothing yet, I will let you before I leave – for the entire weekend, I hope.)
If they are not on today before everyone goes home, it is going to be a long weekend without the canal cams. If I hear anything else I will let you know.
The problem is when they have trouble with their service, they have to turn off the cams so all of the computers can run.   Linda C.C.13 :doh: ??? :'(

Just got this. Lets hope they find it sooner and they come on today.       (Latest update from our Internet service provider… They are checking connections, basically wiring from their offices to ours.  They probably will not finish today, so they’re saying late Wednesday.
So sorry!)    C.C.13

All the cams came online yesterday about 1215 PDT. The time stamps were out on the Hi Res cams. They adjusted the Miraflores time and then things went down. That was the last time I saw them in action.

I emailed the canal about the Miraflores Hi- Res cam being off, & this is what I was told.
(The technicians have removed the webcam in order to repair a pressurization problem which causes the images to look slightly blurred.  They have indicated that it will be 1-3 days before it's installed again.) With luck maybe we will be able to see the ships better at night. C.C.13

The Gatun Hi-Res cam is back working. The other Gatun cam has to be taken down to be cleaned. This is what I was told. (((.  Unfortunately, technicians must climb the tower, bring the camera down, clean it, etc. etc. and climb again to put it back.  This has to be scheduled around their other on-going assignments.))) They are also going to see if they can fix the cam's that we can't see much at night. I'm just telling you what I have heard. C.C.13   :wave:

I GOT THIS FROM THE CANAL..........C.C.13

I’ve been informed that the intermittency of the Gatun Hi-resolution webcam can’t be resolved off the bat.  It will continue to go on and off intermittently.  They have proceeded to purchase a new webcam to replace this one.  Once it arrives, they will install it as weather permits (its on a communications tower and for safety reasons they can only climb the tower in clear weather).

I noticed.  they are running late, too.  Regatta is sitting between Miraflores and Pedro Miguel.  there was an occasional, VERY occasional on the Miraflores hi-res.  Frustrating.  CJ

So, no Gatun Locks for Wind Spirit.  And since this is Friday afternoon, I'm not expecting to see Wind Spirit when she comes  back through on Sunday.  CJ

I ASKED ABOUT THE GATUN HI-RES CAM & WAS TOLD THIS......C.C.13........The arm which controls the viewing angle is loose.  They have to climb the communication tower to tighten.

At one time yesterday, it was looking straight down.  I thought maybe someone was up the tower working on it.  CJ
