... NOAA Weather Radio upgrade scheduled for noon Tuesday...

At noon on Tuesday, June 28th, the National Weather Service in
Birmingham will complete the process of updating the software and
systems that generates the messages for all NOAA Weather Radio
transmitters in central Alabama.

The upgraded software has been successfully tested on the
Birmingham and Montgomery transmitters, so the remaining
transmitters will be upgraded as well on Tuesday. The upgrade to
our NWR systems is necessary to ensure the NWR broadcasts remain
reliable by replacing outdated hardware and software, which was
becoming obsolete and difficult to maintain.

There is nothing that you will need to change on your NWR
receiver to continue receiving warnings, watches and forecasts
from the NWS!

You will most likely notice a different voice when you listen to
our broadcasts. It will take some time for our new voice to learn
the proper pronunciations of some of the locations in central
Alabama, as well as some of the phrases we use in our area. If you
hear mispronounced words or phrases, you can help US train the new
voice by contacting US on our facebook or twitter
(@nwsbirmingham), or by calling US directly at 205-664-3010 and
press option 2.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this
necessary switch. If you have any further comments or concerns
regarding this change, please contact warning coordination
meteorologist John de block at (205) 664-3010, extension 223, or
meteorologist-in-charge jim stefkovich at (205) 664-3010,
extension 222.
