WEEKLY ALERT NOT RECEIVED
« on: December 01, 2016, 09:38:33 AM »
I reside in Westchester County, NY covered by KWO35 162.550. I purchased 3 Weather Alert radios & triple checked the setup & FIPS CODES. I have not received the RWT alert or any alerts for that matter. I switched the area to ALL for the 2nd week and still no Weekly Test received. I am receiving NOAA loud and clear. Any info will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve/Yonkers, NY

It may help if you gave the models. You are positive weekly alert is turned on? I keep weekly alerts off on my unit.

NWR alarm features normally run tests each Wednesday between 10 a.m. and noon local time.
If you have any questions regarding alarm tests or to verify if a test was conducted, contact the programming office of the NOAA Weather Radio station.

Midland WR120EZ, Midland WR300, Sangean CL100. I went through the alerts individually and set them all to the ON position just to increase the chance that I would receive ANY Alert to make sure the setup is correct. I have no Messages stored in the radios I have listed and I have them setup for the past 2 weeks with no luck getting the weekly test alert message. I am at work when the weekly test is sent, so I check for a message when I get home and none of the radios show a message was received.
Thanks Again for your help.

Call the number and ask if weekly test went out. http://www.stormready.noaa.gov/stormmaps/ny-cwa.htm

Thanks Very Much for the info, I called the number phone number 631-924-0037 and spoke to a very helpful gentleman who advised the alert was not sent the past two weeks due to the weather conditions. He advised it would be sent in the next 5 minutes and sure enough, the alerts went off without a hitch. I am relieved the radios are all operating as they should. I was doubting my setup or that the radios actually worked as they should. Anyway all is well & thanks for all the help from the group.

Good deal, I was wondering about that. They usually don't totally skip but wait for fair weather.
