A WORD ABOUT Weather Radio Alert Receivers..
The above Maine and New Hampshire county FIPS codes are used by the next generation of Weather Alert Receivers. These "SAME-activated" Weather Alert Receivers alert the user when a warning is issued only for a particular county of interest. In order for them to work...the user must input the appropriate county FIPS code from the table above. The new "SAME-activated"  Weather Alert Receiver allows the listener to receive warnings only for the county of interest. The older style of Weather Alert receiver alerts for all warnings issued by a NOAA Weather Radio Broadcast Station regardless of county. Please note that the current NOAA Weather Radio format continues to support both the old and new style of Weather Alert Receiver.
