NYC NOAA Radio Extended Outage

From: "Marshall, George p.p. SBE 15 EAS" <info@sbe15.com> (GeorgeMarshall _at_ iheartmedia.com)
Subject: NYC NOAA Radio Extended Outage
Date: November 16th 2017

The short story here is that they have to relocate the transmitter and don’t even have a new location yet – and when they do find one, they’ll need to test for performance and interference issues.   So, if you’re using the NYC NOAA radio on 162.550 MHz, you’ll not get be getting NOAA alerts for a long time.

 

Just passing it along.  See Below.
