NOAA ALL Hazards Weather Radio

NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations 
broadcasting continuous weather information direct from a nearby 
National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts National Weather 
Service 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 also broadcasts warning and post-event information 
for all types of hazards--both natural (such as earthquakes and 
volcano activity)and environmental (such as chemical releases or 
oil spills).

Known as the "Voice of NOAA's National Weather Service," NWR is 
provided as a public service by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric 
Administration (NOAA), part of the Department of Commerce. NWR includes
more than 900 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. Broadcasts are found in the public service 
band at these seven frequencies (MHz):

162.400 162.425 162.450 162.475 162.500 162.525 162.550
