IMPORTANT NOTICE for users of the Champaign NOAA Weather Radio station (WXJ-76, 162.550 MHz):

WXJ-76 has a failed power divider on the antenna. This is resulting in the signal only extending a few miles at best from the transmitter site. Technicians are arranging for someone to climb the antenna tower to repair the problem, but the outage is likely to continue through the weekend.

There is a threat of severe weather on Sunday, and it is important to have multiple ways of receiving watches and warnings. While any warning alarm codes would be sent for the normal coverage area, it is likely that only people in the immediate Champaign/Urbana area would receive them.

Several neighboring stations cover parts of WXJ-76's coverage area. Visit the following link for specific details:
