Re: New NOAA Weather Alert

We experienced it today for the first time. All of a sudden an alarm was going off in the cockpit. We both scrabbled to check the oil pressure and coolant temperature. They were both fine. WTF? Then the wife noticed it was the cockpit VHF that was ringing the alarm. After we silenced it, it made me wonder if it would go off at regular intervals as long as the weather alert was active. We didn't hear it again, but we tucked in within the next hour or so.

Can't say that I've heard it yet. Of course, we never get severe weather. 15kt on the beam and sunny every day.

As you can tell, I've thoroughly blocked out the hurricane haul I've done in each of the past three years..........

Standard Horizon HX290 (handheld). I am not sure whether it will do that on the older VHFs. I will try and see next time and turn on my older boat-vhf.

The people that would do that would also turn this one off... maybe even more likely to turn this one off it is so annoying.

Have you heard it? Sounds just like a smoke alarm.

DOn't disagree with that, but understand that when the alert goes off, it no longer broadcasts what the problem is. For example, on the old alert, after it was done, it would be followed by what the alert was. On this one, after done, you can turn it off and have already missed it. Nothing comes through while that is on... not even the alert.

Make sense?
