ANCHORAGE - The residents of Nenana will be able to get 24-hour a day weather reports from Fairbanks thanks to a new weather radio transmitter.
The NOAA transmitter will serve residents, visitors and others needing weather information for the central portion of Interior Alaska.
John Dragomir, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's forecast office in Fairbanks, says the tower will greatly enhance the agency's ability to transmit weather warnings and forecasts. The reports are available by tuning into 162.4 on NOAA Weather Radio.
The weather radio transmitter was installed on Toghotthele Hill in Nenana.
