NOAA radio or just NOAA alerts? straight up cross banding NOAA could be considered broadcasting, and that is not allowed. However Transmitting a 1 to 2 min. alert followed by Official NOAA instructions could be legal. I find it redundant as NOAA sends out a very powerful signal, no need to splatter another channel of another band.

Thank you, G.

 

I understand a shade of crossbanding NOAA (not just alerts) can be considered broadcasting, however, I didn't feel that users crossbanding someone else's repeaters', especially traffic net, was any different. Which does seem to happen. I was asking because I have a few UHF handhelds that would be great weather radios. Unfortunately, NOAA is VHF. I could've really used multiple weather radios last year during hurricane Mathew for my family instead of sharing a radio or updating them. Of course I could simply purchase other radios, but, again, I was just asking.

Happy early birthday, by the way. :)

I have NOAA alerts on my repeater, 45 second time out, just because that's all you really need to get the point of the alert. I concur that the VHF is sufficient, but we don't keep weather radios in the vehicles or on our person at all times, so it's convenient and good for safety sake, especially in the middle of 1,000 acres.
