...SERVICE AREA CHANGE FOR NOAA WEATHER RADIO STATION KZZ-65 IN
BLOOMINGTON EFFECTIVE JULY 2...

Effective July 2, 2018 at noon CDT, a change will be made to the 
service area for NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) station KZZ-65 in 
Bloomington, IL. On that date, weather forecast and warning 
information for De Witt County will be added to the broadcast. 

Weather radio programming information:
* County code for De Witt County: 017039
* Frequency for KZZ-65:  162.525 MHz (channel 6)
* Other counties in the service area: McLean (017113), Tazewell
  (017179), Woodford (017203)

Information for De Witt County has been included on the NWR
stations in Springfield (WXJ-75, 162.400 MHz) and Champaign
(WXJ-76, 162.550 MHz) for many years. However, neither station's
signal fully covered the county. Signal strength tests for KZZ-65
indicate its signal is much stronger over most of the county,
including the most populated areas around Clinton. 

Weather forecast and warning information will continue to be
included in the Champaign and Springfield NWR broadcast programs.
Thus, people who prefer to use those stations do not need to make
any changes.

If you have any questions or comments about this change, please
contact Chris Miller, our Warning Coordination Meteorologist, at
chris.miller@noaa.gov .
