    Default VHF Weather alerts?

    Does the OBS broadcast weather alerts on NOAA?

    I guess that is the more correct way of saying it Bill Thanks.

    How's the signal in the Whites?

    Very good actually, a few deadspots in cols and cataracts, but otherwise good...

    Interesting... I don't think I've ever heard anyone ask about Weather Band reception in the mountains. If you're spending a long time in the Whites, such as hiking the A.T., this makes sense.

    3 days - 2 nights starting Monday. Looking at the forecast snow is expected through Tuesday. Just want to know what to expect... Never too prepared - RIGHT?

    My mistake, he has US Cell, not Unicell. Surprisingly when he travels outside New England his service is pretty bad.

    I use Verizon and if you stand in the bulging center part of the observatory windows I CAN get a signal - fairly reliably. I also got reception on Lion's Head, but not always . . . spotty at best for the mountains . . .
