...THE NOAA WEATHER RADIO NYC TRANSMITTER WILL BE OUT OF SERVICE
FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME STARTING THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 27,
2017...

The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter that serves the NYC metropolitan
area will be out of service for an extended period of time starting
the week of November 27, 2017.

This station is KWO35 broadcasting on a frequency of 162.550 MHz on
750 watts.

This outage is required to re-locate the NYC NOAA Weather Radio
transmitter.  We are in the process of identifying possible new
locations for the transmitter.  Once a new site is identified, we
will begin system testing to assure the transmitter and the
associated signal is performing at an optimal level. This
process will take several months.

During this period, local NWS observations, forecasts, and data for
the NYC metropolitan area can be found on:

area will continue at 631-924-0517.

We will provide updates on the status of the NYC NOAA Weather Radio
Transmitter through Public Information Statements when more
information becomes available.
