Reviewing Recent
The weather radio can store up to 10 different Weather/Hazard alerts (with over-
lapping effective times) in its memory. If the weather radio receives a new alert
while any previous alert is still in effect, it automatically displays the new alert.
You can review all alerts still in effect by pressing the "UP" arrow to scroll through
the weather radio's active alert memory. A double beep indicates the end of the
list. "NO MESSAGE" will be displayed if no alerts are active.

est Signals Broadcast by NWS:
All National Weather Service stations periodically transmit test signals. You can
find out when your local NWS station broadcasts test signals by calling the NOAA
National Weather Service Forecast Office (listed under 'Weather" in the Federal
Government section of the telephone book.)
During the weekly test signal, the local NWS station will give a list of counties
covered by their transmitter. The NWS test signal allows everyone with weather
radio receivers to verify the operation of their equipment.
The following test signals may be sent by the NWS during testing: required week-
ly test, required monthly test, system demo, and national periodic test.
During a test, the yellow advisory LED will light up and the "Weekly Test" or
"Monthly Test" message will be visible on the display. The radio will not sound an
audible alert tone to avoid giving the impression of an actual alarm. The visual
response to the test is confirmation that your radio is working properly. Please
note: If your advisory light is on and continues to stay on, the radio will
reset this function within 6 hours.
