NOAA Weather Radio is steadily expanding across the country
as new transmitters are installed, usually with funding supplied
by state and local governments.
It is difficult for many listeners to know what is the best
NOAA Weather Radio transmitter to tune to for their location.
For listeners in Southern Wisconsin,
please refer to this listing
of counties and what transmitters offer the best radio
reception. Unfortunately, Weather Radio coverage is
not 100%. Some counties are at the edge of numerous transmitters
and if you are in an unfavorable geographic area in that county,

Some helpful hints to increase your chances of receiving

outside south wall (preferably not in the basement). Try to
use an outside antenna if reception is weak.
