... Cumby NOAA all hazards radio remains off the air...
The Cumby NOAA all hazards radio transmitter which broadcasts on
a frequency of 162.500 mhz... call sign kwn-31... remains off the
air. Technically... the transmitter is broadcasting... but the
broadcast power is degraded so only those within a few miles of
the transmitter site are receiving the transmission. Technicians
think this problem is related to the physical antenna so heavy
equipment will need to be transported to the site to replace or
repair the antenna. We have been notified that they will be at
the site Tuesday December 17th... weather permitting... to make the
necessary repairs. We apologize for the continued inconvenience.
