NWS WX Radio

Does anybody know if there is an NWS radio transmitter in Childress, TX? If you don't know that, should I be picking up a station in Childress?

I'm not getting anything in town, and I'm wondering if my radio crapped out or there isn't any trasmitter around.

Thanks
 
Childress is in the pipeline to get a NWR transmitter. I don't know where it is in approval/funding/etc, but I know there was one planned.

I remember someone saying many of them were held up as tower sites were being looked at.

Hope someone else chimes in.

Childress is on a waiting list to get a transmitter but many times you can pick up the transmitter from Altus depending on the conditions. A strong cap will bouce the signal and it is usually pretty clear. other days you get nothing. That area has a huge hole in it for NOAA radio coverage as did most of the panhandle but now they have repeaters in all but the SE (i.e Childress).
