...Periodic NOAA Weather Radio Outages This Morning...
NOAA Weather Radio will experience periodic short disruptions in
service this morning, June 8th, from 8 am to 10 am. These
disruptions will be necessary as the National Weather Service
migrates the NOAA Weather Radio broadcast to a new broadcast system.
Between 1130 am and noon Wednesday...we will conduct a test of
the NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio Alarm System using the new
system. Persons with alarms on their radios...are asked to ensure
that they are turned on...to confirm that the test was received.
Again...the alarm test will be conducted between 1130 am and noon
today. The alarm test may be cancelled without notice in the event
of rapidly developing warning or watch conditions...which require
the Wakefield office to shift into a higher alert mode.
