916 NOUS42 KILM 212227 PNSILM NCZ096-099-105>110-222200- Public Information Statement National Weather Service Wilmington NC 627 PM EDT Fri Apr 21 2017 The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter, KHB31, in Winnabow, NC will be down for repairs until Saturday afternoon so that the new Rf cable and antenna can be replaced. The Winnabow, North Carolina transmitter serves portions of Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover, Pender, and the adjacent coastal waters off Cape Fear in southeast North Carolina. The new cable and antenna will replace equipment that suffered damage a few months ago. Since that time the transmitter has been operating at half power. The Winnabow transmitter will be off the air while the new equipment is installed. The new cable will reduce signal loss, while the new 8 bay antenna increases the broadcast footprint of the transmitter. Once installed, the new antenna and cable will enable the National Weather Service to better serve communities across southeast NC with observations, forecasts, and warning information. $$ 05 is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
