...NOAA Weather Radio Transition...

On Wednesday, September 7, 2016, the National Weather Service
office in Riverton, WY, will begin transitioning NOAA weather
radio systems from the console replacement system to the broadcast
message handling system. Around 7 am on Wednesday, the weather
radio transmissions from Lander and Copper Mountain will
experience a slight disruption during the transition. Testing will
occur during the morning hours. If the transition for these two
sites is successful, then the transition will occur in the early
afternoon for five sites across northwest Wyoming, including
Dubois, Jackson, Afton, Pinedale, and Yellowstone National Park.

Again, if the transition continues to be successful, then the
remainder of the sites for western and central Wyoming will be
switched Thursday morning. These sites include Kemmerer, Rock
Springs, Casper, Kaycee, Cedar Mountain near Hyattville, and Cody.

Switching to the broadcast message handling system should be
transparent to users, except that a new voice will be used and
reliability should increase. If there are any questions regarding
this upgrade, please call the National Weather Service office in
Riverton at 1-800-211-1448.
