New Weather Radio Transmitter in Western CO

NEW!   Eagle NOAA Weather Radio Broadcast
The Eagle All-Hazards NOAA Weather Radio transmitter located at an elevation just below the eleven-thousand foot level near Eagle, Colorado, began broadcasting on July 19, 2012. The radio frequency is 162.450 Megahertz on the Weather Band, the power output is 100 watts, and the station ID is WZ-2518.
This new broadcast contains weather forecasts, weather warnings, current weather observations, and other weather-related information. The transmitter can also warn for Non-Weather Emergency Messages, and is designed to activate warning alarm systems, including the Emergency Alert System (EAS) in Eagle County and portions of some adjacent counties.
Although the Eagle All-Hazards NOAA Weather Radio transmitter is located in Eagle County, the actual broadcast signal originates from the National Weather Service office in Grand Junction, Colorado.
The broadcast is currently being operated in a test mode that is being conducted for a 30-day period. After a successful 30-day test period, the broadcast will be considered operational.
