California Tsunami Warnings
« on: March 12, 2011, 03:46:16 PM »
I was just wondering if NOAA transmitted the tsunami warning alert to weather radios? I never received an alert on my radio. The regular broadcast had info on the warning but my alert never went off. Just wondering if I have an issue with my radio. Thanks.

Where are you located? The "warning" extended from the Oregon border to Point Conception, and was an "advisory" south of that.

My Reecom R-1650c lists tsunami warning, tsunami watches in the manual. I have that turned off live in Ohio that would be major if the Atlantic got over the Appalachian Mountains.  ;)

Specifically, Lake county california. Transmitter is in the city of Ukiah (Station WNG720) in Mendocino county, Ca. Mendocino is a coastal county that was under the warning.

And is your radio configured to decode SAME messages for Mendocino, or just Lake county?

Yes. I rechecked this and confirmed that it is set correctly. Just wrote NOAA and asked if that specific station had broadcast the warning. Will see what they say. Thanks.
