Weather Radio

weather radioWe recommend weather radios with SAME alert technology, especially for receiving weather bulletins at night or while asleep. Weather radios are a must for people who live in mobile homes or do not have a basement, to ensure sufficient time to find safe shelter in case of tornadoes or extreme winds. 

Weather Radio Event:  
Join KELOLAND meteorologist Grant Smith and other weather experts on April 28th from 10AM to 2PM at Ken's Super Fair in Aberdeen to get your weather radio programmed!  New weather radios will also be available to purchase.

In order to program your weather radio specifically for your home location, you need two pieces of information.

1) The channel (frequency) of the nearest weather radio transmitter. Here are charts listing the locations and channel numbers for the states in KELOLAND:

South Dakota     Minnesota     Iowa     Nebraska     North Dakota     Wyoming

2) The SAME code, so that you can set the radio to only sound alerts for the county in which you live. Here are the charts with county SAME code numbers:

 South Dakota     Minnesota     Iowa     Nebraska     North Dakota     Wyoming

If you live near a county line, you might wish to input the SAME codes for both counties by using the WR-100's "multiple" function.
