Common questions & answers:

Q: What is NOAA Weather Radio?
A: For information on this subject, please visit our NOAA Weather Radio information page; the page you are viewing is designed to help you tune into the Internet broadcasts.

Q: How can I listen in to the products in the NWR broadcast cycle?
A: First of all, you'll need a media player installed on your PC. Most Windows 98 or later computers already have one already installed, so you may not have to download any special software. Second of all, you'll need to be connected to the Internet at 14.4 Kbps or faster; we recommend a 28.8 Kbps connection or better for best results. Click on the MP3 link for the NWR product you wish to listen to, and your default media player will load and play the clip. If you click on a link and nothing happens, or the clip does not play normally, rebooting (restarting) your PC will most likely clear up the problem.

Q: Is this a live broadcast?
A: The audio MP3 files you are listening to on the Internet are a direct representation of what is being transmitted live from our transmitter in Phoenix, Yuma and Globe; each product in the NWR broadcast cycle has been encoded as an MP3 file and placed onto our web server so that you may listen to it. Each time the a product in the broadcast cycle is updated, a new MP3 file is encoded, so that whatever you are listening to is always current.
