NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from a nearby National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts National Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day.
Known as the "Voice of NOAA's National Weather Service," NWR is provided as a public service by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), part of the Department of Commerce. NWR includes more than 940 transmitters , covering all 50 states, adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific Territories. NWR requires a special radio receiver or scanner capable of picking up the signal. Broadcasts are found in the VHF public service band at these seven frequencies (MHz): 162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, 162.550.
From the National Weather Service Office in Gaylord, Michigan the information broadcast is tailored to the weather needs of the people of Northern Michigan and includes Marine Forecasts for Northern Lake Michigan. In times of hazardous weather, special products, such as watches, warnings, special weather statements and outlooks will be broadcast.

The radio audio output is connected to the line-in on the sound card of our weather computer. Software on the weather computer encodes the audio signal into a MP3 stream and sends that MP3 stream to the internet. Anyone with an internet connection can then listen to the stream.
The streams can be delayed by 10 seconds to 2 minutes because of buffering or Internet congestion.
