... Public information statement...

Hardware that controls NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts is nearly 20
years old and has reached the end of its expected service life.
New hardware and software to manage NOAA Weather Radio programming
has been implemented within the advanced weather interactive
processing system (awips). AWIPS is the primary computer system
used by the National Weather Service to provide forecast and
warning services. Having NOAA Weather Radio within the AWIPS
umbrella provides a more robust and reliable platform for support
of NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts and allows greater capacity for
future enhancements. The new NOAA Weather Radio manager is called
the broadcast message handler (bmh).

The National Weather Service in Dodge City will change
programming for the Dodge City NOAA Weather Radio transmitter to
the new bmh platform around 7 am on 29 June. If no significant
problems are identified, the other transmitters will be switched
to bmh on 6 July. The new bmh incorporates a new voice generation
program, so NOAA Weather Radio will sound slightly different after
the transition occurs. National Weather Service personnel have
modified the automated voice to pronounce most words correctly,
but there may still be a few words that require adjustment. If you
hear mispronunciations or find other problems with the new
broadcast, please contact Larry ruthi or Jeff Hutton at the
National Weather Service in Dodge City at 620-225-6514 or by
electronic mail at W-ddc.Webmaster@noaa.Gov.
