Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex NOAA Weather Frequencies
by joel Sampson / N5LXI

Most modern two-meter transceivers, HT's and all scanners can receive the NOAA weather broadcasts. The NOAA Weather Radio page lists all nationwide frequencies and other information.

I use the distant NOAA stations as FM beacons. If you can heard the distant stations, VHF is up! These stations were verifed with several radios and antennas. I can receive many of them on a HT. There are a total of seven frequencies used.
