Weather Radio

Aiming To Prepare, Not To Scare

Guide to NOAA Weather Radios

Our Team has put this page together to help the public understand, set up and use their NOAA Weather Radios. NOAA Weather Radios are critical to have in everyday lives as they deliver alerts in real-time directly from the National Weather Service.

Understanding NOAA Weather Radios

Weather radios sound by counties and not specific geolocations, so it is necessary to know which county you live in. After you understand which county you live in, you then need to find which NOAA Weather Radio transmitters your radio can hear.  On some radios, it will automatically find the strongest signal and tune to it for you.

If you need assistance figuring out which county you live in, click the button below

 

NOAA Weather Radio transmitters operate on the following frequencies: 162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, and 162.550.

Proceed to the next section to see the specific counties the Alabama NOAA Weather Radio Transmitter covers. From there, you can find the SAME/FIPS code that can be programmed into your radio so it only sounds for specific counties.

Alabama NOAA Weather Radio Transmitter Index

There are several different transmitters located throughout the state of Alabama. It is important to know which transmitter covers which counties. They are all listed below from west to east. For a more detailed look at the transmitter and to get the SAME/FIPS code for a specific county, click the NWR icon above the station ID.
