by nature and design, NOAA weather radio coverage is limited to an area within 40 miles of the transmitter. the quality of what is heard is dictated by the distance from the transmitter, local terrain, and the quality and location of the receiver. in general, those on flat terrain or at sea, using a high quality receiver, can expect reliable reception far beyond 40 miles. those living in cities surrounded by large buildings or in hilly areas may experience poor reception at considerably less than 40 miles.
 

every wednesday between 10AM and noon, eastern time, a test is conducted which tests the tone alert system. the test will not occur when severe weather is occurring or expected, and will be postponed to the first good weather day. this test provides a way to check the functioning of the radio receiver alarms.
