Have Questions about your Weather Radio?

Wondering what transmitter you should use to ensure that you receive watches and warnings from the National Weather Service? Please follow this link to a map of local transmitters which also provides information on what counties are alerted (green hatched area) for watches and warnings via that transmitter. Just click on the transmitter location that is nearest to you and check to see that your county is alerted by that transmitter.  For instance, if you live in Jackson or Jefferson counties you will see that the transmitter out of Topeka alerts for your counties while the St. Joesph transmitter does NOT alert for your counties. So in this case make sure that your weather radio is tuned to WXK91 out of Topeka!

Occasionally, the National Weather Service Office in Topeka receives inquiries about how to program new NOAA All Hazards Weather Radios.  Since there are many models and manufacturers to choose from, the National Weather Service has compiled a list of manufacturers of all hazard weather radios along with website and contact information that can assist you in programming your new NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio.
