...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

...THE NOAA WEATHER RADIO NYC TRANSMITTER IS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO
SERVICE AUTUMN 2019...

THE NOAA WEATHER RADIO TRANSMITTER THAT SERVES THE NYC METROPOLITAN
AREA IS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO SERVICE IN AUTUMN 2019 AFTER AN
EXTENDED OUTAGE. THE NEW LOCATION FOR KWO-35 WILL BE AT THE TOP OF
THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING IN MIDTOWN MANHATTAN.

IN NOVEMBER 2017, SERVICE WAS TERMINATED DUE TO FAILED LEASE
NEGOTIATIONS. THE OUTAGE REQUIRED THE NWS TO RE-LOCATE THE
TRANSMITTER TWO TIMES. WHILE THE PROCESS OF IDENTIFYING POSSIBLE NEW
LOCATIONS WAS CHALLENGING, IT WAS ULTIMATELY COMPLETED. NOW THAT A
NEW SITE HAS BEEN FINALIZED, NWS IS AUTHORIZED TO BEGIN NEW
INSTALLATION PROCEDURES AND SYSTEM TESTING TO ENSURE THE TRANSMITTER
SIGNAL WILL PERFORM AT OPTIMAL LEVELS. THIS PROCESS WILL TAKE
SEVERAL MONTHS. HOWEVER, IF ALL GOES WELL, WE COULD HAVE THE
TRANSMITTER BACK SOONER THAN ANTICIPATED.

KWO35 WILL RESUME BROADCAST ON A FREQUENCY OF 162.550 MHZ ON 750
WATTS.

NYC METROPOLITAN AREA CAN BE FOUND ON:
