...Public Information Statement...

...THE NOAA WEATHER RADIO NYC TRANSMITTER WILL BE OUT OF SERVICE 
FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME STARTING THIS AFTERNOON...

The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter that serves the NYC metropolitan 
area will be out of service for an extended period of time starting 
this afternoon.

This station is KWO35 broadcasting on a frequency of 162.550 MHz on 
750 watts.

This outage is required to re-locate the NYC NOAA Weather Radio 
transmitter.  We are in the process of identifying possible new 
locations for the transmitter.  Once a new site is identified, we 
will begin system testing to assure the transmitter and the 
associated signal is performing at an optimal level. This 
process will take several months.

During this period, local NWS observations, forecasts, and data for 
the NYC metropolitan area can be found on:

If you have any comments or questions, please contact Susan 
Buchanan, NWS Acting Director of Public Affairs at 
susan.buchanan@noaa.gov or 301-427-9000.

Voice recordings of NWS weather information for the NYC metropolitan 
area will continue at 631-924-0517.

We will provide updates on the status of the NYC NOAA Weather Radio 
Transmitter through Public Information Statements when more 
information becomes available.
