Weather Radio Tests

The Norman Forecast Office conducts a weekly alert test. The weekly test is provided to allow radio owners to verify that their radios are functioning correctly. Some radios display a message, such as "Check Op," after they fail to receive the test. At NWS Norman, as with most NWS offices, the weekly weather radio test is conducted each Wednesday at noon. If there is a risk of severe weather around noon on Wednesday, the test is postponed until the next "good weather" day.

It is not unusual for radios located near the edge of the reliable broadcast area to fail to receive the test occasionally. However, if this occurs repeatedly, you should attempt to improve the radio's reception, either by relocating the radio, adjusting its antenna, or adding an external antenna. In a few cases, this situation may be helped by tuning to a different transmitter. is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
