25 July 2014 - An earthquake near Juneau, Alaska has interrupted the power and communications infrastructure that provides the Aviation Camera Program network connectivity resulting in several sites being out of service.

Matanuska-Susitna Valley Designated CTAF Areas
FAA is re-assigning Common Traffic Advisory Frequencies (CTAF) in the Matanuska and Susitna (Mat-Su) Valleys to improve situational awareness and clarify frequency use. Effective May 29, 2014, individual airport CTAFs are being assigned within Designated CTAF Areas. Tabs with the graphical CTAF information may be accessed on the Birchwood, Knik, Palmer, Skwentna, Talkeetna, Wasilla and Willow AVCAM sites.
Pilots are encouraged to use ATC Flight Following and FSS airport advisory services, when available. When not in contact with ATC or flight service, pilots should use the assigned CTAF frequencies to make position reports while operating in the depicted areas. Outside these areas, standard CTAF guidelines apply.
