NWS Weather Broadcasts on Your AM/FM Radio

The Colorado Department of Transportation ( CDOT ) has established a series of repeater stations, allowing the All-Hazards NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts to be heard on standard AM/FM radios . Most of these stations are along the Interstate 70 corridor between Grand Junction and Denver, but a few extend into the more populated areas north and south of I-70 in western Colorado. A few of these stations transmit only road conditions, however. Four different FM frequencies are utilized, while two stations (in the Eagle and Edwards area) transmit a 10 Watt signal on an AM frequency. While these stations transmit weather information 24 hours a day, CDOT will occasionally interrupt broadcasts with important highway and travel information. Please note: the weather radio alarm features will NOT work on AM/FM radios.

Currently, the CDOT AM/FM radio weather information repeater network is as follows:
