Update: 12/8/16 1:53pm

Updated PNS from NWS HUN Regarding KIH-20 Outage
...NOAA Weather Radio Transmitter in Huntsville offline...

NOAA Weather Radio station KIH-20, transmitting out of Huntsville
on a frequency of 162.400 MHz, is still off the air due to last
week's Monte Sano-area tornado. Rainfall over the last few days
along with the location of the issue is challenging the efforts of
restoring communications to the transmitter. The issue has been
escalated as high as it can go. We are hopeful that some kind of
service can be restored this week.

During the outage, persons across the listening area can get
their weather information from other stations. They include:

WNG-642 out of Arab, transmitting on 162.525 MHz.
WWF-44 out of Fort Payne, transmitting on 162.500 MHz.

We apologize for any inconvenience this outage may cause.
