Weatheradio: find your network

Click on the map to find out your network

Over 90 per cent of Canadians live within range of a Weatheradio transmitter. Broadcast range for a Weatheradio transmitter is approximately 60 kilometres, but this depends on things like terrain, the quality of the receiver, and the antenna height above ground.

Weatheradio broadcasts on the frequencies 162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, and 162.550 MHz. At selected locations, low power broadcasts without the alert tone are transmitted on the regular FM or AM band. A Weatheradio receiver is not required to hear these broadcasts.

Before you buy a receiver, make sure your area is covered by one of these transmitters. Check the provincial list for the transmitter and frequency nearest to your home.

Weatheradio Canada Status Update – September 3rd, 2020

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is currently soliciting feedback on the possible decommissioning of 48 of 230 Weatheradio Canada transmitters in its national network to better understand the value of this VHF broadcast service to Canadians.

The transmitters identified for possible decommissioning are predominantly situated in areas where they provide overlapping service and where alternate access channels such as cell phone service, Canadian Coast Guard VHF marine radio, and internet accessibility are readily available as a source of ECCC weather information and alerts.   

The list of transmitters proposed for decommissioning by province/territory is:

A message was broadcast on the proposed transmitters with details for providing comments and feedback. Feedback received through this entire process will be evaluated and used to inform the final decision on affected Weatheradio transmitters later this year.

The balance of the Weatheradio Canada network, predominantly in Northern, remote and rural areas, is simultaneously being modernized with new voice technology and upgraded electronics systems.
