NWR broadcasts official noaa_marktrailwarnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Working with the Federal Communication Commission’s Emergency Alert System, NWR is an all hazards radio network, making it your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information.

    In conjunction with emergency managers and other public officials, NWR broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards including natural events such as earthquakes and avalanches, environmental accidents such as chemical releases or oil spills, and public safety issues such as a child abduction or 911 telephone outage. Please see NWR Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) for Event Codes

    Known as the “Voice of NOAA’s National Weather Service,” NWR is provided as a public service by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, part of the Department of Commerce. NWR numbers 1000 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 VHF public service band at these seven frequencies (MHz) listed below.
