Sima WX-167 NOAA Public Alert Radio with S.A.M.E. (Specific Area Message Encoding)

The WX-167 receives both audio and digitally encoded civil and weather emergency alert messages transmitted from NOAA broadcast towers. NOAA has more than 900 towers in the 50 states and near adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S.Virgin Islands and the U.S. Pacific Territories.

The WX-167 Public Alert TM Radio receives all 7 NOAA weather channels and uses Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) technology to identify specific areas, like a county or portion of a state.

To simplify programming, the WX-167 has a built-in database of over 3000 state and county locations. You can select up to 20 locations for your radio to respond to. NOTE: You must select the correct weather channel to receive warnings for the state/county codes that you have programmed.

When NOAA broadcasts a message, the WX-167decodes the message and displays it on the LCDscreen. One of three color-coded LED lights will lightup identifying the message as an “Advisory” (yellow), “Watch” (orange) or “Warning” (red). External handicapped accessory devices are triggered, if connected. The alert siren sounds and the radio automatically switches to the voice broadcast.

There are optional settings which you can use, such as Event Blocking and Alerting Options, to customize the response of your radio to an alert.

Working with other federal agencies and the FCC’s Emergency Alert System (EAS), NOAA is the single source for weather and civil emergency information available to the public.
