NOAA Weather Radio (NWR)


NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting
National Weather Service (NWS) warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day.
Working with the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Emergency Alert System,
NWR is an all hazards radio network, making it your single source for comprehensive
weather and emergency information. NWR broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazardsboth natural (such as earthquakes and volcano activity)
and environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills).
Known as the Voice of NOAAs National Weather Service, NWR is provided as a public service by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), part of the Department
of Commerce. As of October 1, 2002, NWR includes more than 760 transmitters, covering all
50 states, adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific
Territories. NWR requires a special radio receiver or scanner capable of picking up the signal.
NOAA Weather Radio receivers can be purchased at many retail stores and through mail
order catalogues and Internet web sites that sell electronic merchandise. They are often available at boat and marine accessory outlets. Broadcasts are found in the public service band at
7 frequencies (see page 3).
NWR service depends on reliable signal reception, typically a 40 mile radius from the transmitter, assuming level terrain. Some counties, especially in mountainous areas, may not
have reliable reception due to signal blockages or excessive distance from the transmitter.
NWR Specific Area Message Encoder (SAME) receivers employ digital coding to automatically
activate for specific weather or emergency conditions in specific areas (typically a county or
portion of a county). You program SAME receivers for the county(s) and types of products you
require. Your receiver will then automatically alert you only of weather and other emergencies
in areas you programmed. SAME county code numbers are available by telephone,
1-888-NWR-SAME (1-888-697-7263), or website, http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm.
Your NWR receiver manufacturer instructions will describe how to select for particular types of
products. Television, cable and radio stations can use SAME to allow their listeners to hear
warnings as they are issued. Less sophisticated NWR receivers are equipped with the warning
alarm or tone alert feature. These receivers will either sound an alarm, or when operated in
mute mode, will automatically turn the volume on so the warning message may be heard.

*NWR SAME activation determined by local needs.
A Warning is issued when the specific hazard is a significant threat to public safety
and/or property, probability of occurrence and certainty of location is high, and the
onset time is relatively short.
A Watch means conditions are favorable for the hazard but either the start time, probability of occurrence or location is uncertain. Stay alert and tuned to local radio, TV, or
NWR.

An Emergency refers to an event that by itself would not kill, injure or do property
damage but indirectly may lead to other things that could result in a hazard.

Facts About NOAA Weather Radio


NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts NOAAs National Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts
and non-weather hazard information 24 hours a day.

Weather radios equipped with a special alarm tone feature can sound an alert and give immediate
information about a life-threatening situation.

SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology lets listeners pre-select the NOAAs
National Weather Service and non-weather alerts they want to receive, based on the county
where they live.

Weather radios come in many sizes and with a variety of functions and costs; from simple, battery-operated portables, to CB radios, scanners, short wave sets, and in some cars and TVs.

Broadcast range from a NOAA Weather Radio transmitter is approximately 40 miles.

The hearing and visually impaired can receive alerts by connecting weather radios with the appropriate plug in to other kinds of attention-getting devices, such as strobe lights, pagers, bedshakers, personal computers and text printers.

On October 1, 2002, there were more than 760 NOAA Weather Radio stations in the 50 states and
near adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. Pacific Territories.

NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts watches when conditions are favorable for severe weather, and
warnings when severe weather is imminent or occurring.
