... Public information statement...

The Austin NOAA Weather Radio transmitter, wxk-27 which operates
on a frequency of 162.400 mhz, and serves Travis and surrounding
counties, is experiencing an antennae problem. Weather radios
very close to the transmitting tower can pick up the broadcast.
However, areas beyond just a few miles are hearing a very sporadic
broadcast or no broadcast at all. Plans to replace wiring and the
antennae at the tower site are in place and the NWS hope to have
full repairs done by June 3rd, end of this week. This repair
timetable unfortunately is not guaranteed as weather will play a
significant role in when and how fast the wiring and antenna can be
replaced on the very tall transmitter tower just west of downtown
Austin. With the rain chances very high toward the end of this
week, there is a good chance that repairs may get pushed into next
week.

Residents should continue to use the practice of having multiple
ways of receiving weather warnings through smart phones, television,
commercial radio stations, the internet, and social media. If you
are in Travis and surrounding counties you should Register your
Mobile phone in order to receive community notifications including
severe weather warnings.

Citizens in Llano, Burnet, blanco, Williamson, Travis, Hays, Lee,
Caldwell, Bastrop, and Fayette counties can Register their cell
phones by going to warncentraltexas.Org.
