...Discontinuation of Marine HF Radio Broadcasts From National
Weather Service Offices in Alaska on November 15, 2017...

Effective November 15, 2017, the National Weather Service (NWS)
Alaska Region plans to discontinue the marine weather
broadcasts via HF radio transmitted from the Annette, Barrow,
Cold Bay, King Salmon, Kodiak, and Nome offices. Marine weather
and forecast information will continue to be available on HF
broadcast from the U.S. Coast Guard. The Coast Guard broadcasts
cover the Bering Sea, Gulf of Alaska, and Pacific Ocean. The
U.S. Coast Guard broadcasts NWS weather information on HF to
meet the United States obligation under the Safety of Life At
Sea Convention. The NWS will continue to broadcast marine
weather information over the NOAA Weather Radio on VHF.
