It’s tornado season again! A reminder that you can use your radios to gather intelligence about weather hazards. In this case, you can hear the National Weather Service weather radio service across the United States.

You can hear one or more of these stations using your Baofeng.

  • NOAA04 – 162.475
  • NOAA05 – 162.500
  • NOAA06 – 162.525
  • NOAA07 – 162.550

3. If you don’t hear anything, then continue the list, either by pressing the up button, or by inputting the next frequency.
