NOAA Birmingham

Repairs to the NOAA Birmingham transmitter are complete. The transmitter is now operating at full power at the proper location on the tower. Anyone that changed the frequency of their radios during the outage can revert back to the Birmingham frequency, 162.550 Mhz. Listeners should check reception to ensure the signal strength will be strong enough to activate the alarm feature. Routine, weekly tests for transmitters will resume tomorrow and Wednesday at 11:00AM to serve as tests for the new transmitter. If weather keeps the agency from conducting both those tests, they may decide to conduct a special test late next week as the weather permits. All information regarding weather radio operations can be found on the NOAA webpage.
