The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter serving La Crosse, WI (WXJ86 at 162.550 MHz) is being upgraded. Once weather clears the area today, the transmitter may be off line for a time to install a new antenna.
The transmitter in the Winona, MN area (KGG95 at 162.425 MHz) will remain on the air and can be used as a backup for La Crosse area residents until the regular service is restored.
This upgrade is part of a transmitter replacement for the La Crosse/La Crescent NOAA weather radio site (WXJ86) which originally began broadcasting back in the 1970s.
