The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) is a government agency that keeps U.S. citizens informed about their changing environment. As part of their wide range of environmental activities, they provide daily weather forecasts, storm warnings and climate monitoring on their NOAA Weather Radio service
. This is a network of radio stations throughout the U.S. that broadcast weather information 24 hours a day, coming directly from the National Weather Service. In addition to alerting the public about potential weather hazards and providing key information following the event, the NWR also broadcasts other non-weather emergencies. They cover natural catastrophes such as avalanches and earthquakes, environmental disasters such as oil spills and chemical releases and matters of public safety, such as 911 telephone outages and AMBER alerts. NWR covers all 50 states, coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. Pacific Territories.
The broadcasts are found in the VHF public service band at these frequencies: 162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525 and 162.550 MHz. Weather alert radios are those two-way radios that are able to pick up this dedicated weather channel, so you can keep fully informed about any impending storms and other environmental conditions that could impact your activities.
