USING
THE WEATHER BAND
Weather information
is given continuously from U.S. Government
Weather
Stations
on frequencies
from 162.4MHz to 162.55MHz.
The Weather transmissions,
broadcast
24 hours a day, are taped messages
that are repeated every 4to 6 minutes and revised and updated as needed to
match the changing
weather conditions.
For additional
information,
check
your local office of the National Weather Service (Department
of Commerce).
IMPORTANT:
The listening
range of NOAA weather stations
varies
from 10 miles up to a maximum
of 40 miles from the station's
transmitter
In some areas of the United States, weather transmissions
cannot be
monitored.
The effective
range of this radio will have side variations
due
to the height of the local transmitting
antenna, atmospheric
conditions,
and the terrain
between the transmitter
and your radio's location.
If a weather station is operating
in your area, you can listen to weather
forecasts by using the WEATHER button on the top of the radio.
#
1. Press the WEATHER button on th top of the radio. The red WEATHER
BAND indicator is lit.
2. Slide the CHANNEL switch on the back of the unit to the channel that
receives the clearest signal from your local weather station (if one is
available).
NOTE: Due to the broadcast characteristics
of weather transmissions,
you
may notice a reduction
in the volume
level of your radio when turning on
the Weather band. Readjust the volume to your preferred listening
level.
