Six Ways to Get the Most Out of Your NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radio:
- Make sure you have your weather radio receiver on the correct channel for your area corresponding to the correct frequency. (i.e., 162.400=channel 1, 162.425= channel 2, etc.)
- Place your weather radio near an exterior window facing the direction of the nearest weather radio transmitter.
- Pull your weather radio antenna all the way out to get the best reception. If you are close to 40 miles from the transmitter, you might have to purchase a small external antenna to ensure that your signal is strong enough to alert your radio.
- Change out your batteries at least twice a year–just like you would do with a smoke detector–to ensure your radio will work if you lose electrical power.
- Double-check that appropriate county FIPS codes have been entered correctly into your weather radio to ensure proper warnings are received. It is recommended that you program in at least a one county buffer zone especially to the west, southwest and south of your county. This could provide extra lead time if a warning is issued for an adjacent county.
- Check your weather radio receiver each Wednesday between 11 AM and 12 PM for the routine weekly test to ensure that your receiver is in good working order. (Note: In cases of inclement weather, the weekly test may be postponed to the next good weather day.)
