NOAA Weather-channels (USA & Canada)

Throughout the US, there are over 900 transmitters utilized by NOAA and the National Weather Service (NWR). They transmit severe weather warnings (such as tornadoes and stuff) to Specialized Receivers. These are either stand-alone units or built-in for example into CB-radios. Of course, transmissions are also easily picked up on virtually any scanner. Locations, callsigns and more can be found at this URL. The frequencies are as follows:
