NOAA Weather Radio station WXJ-76 in Champaign, which operates on a frequency of 162.550 MHz, is operating on reduced power due to an issue with the coax on the tower. Efforts are ongoing to resolve the issue, however at this time we have no estimation for when normal service will be restored. This will impact the distance the signal is received from the transmitter site.

Listeners in Coles, Douglas and Edgar Counties can also receive severe weather warnings on station KXI-47 in Paris.  Ford County is also covered by stations WXK-24 in Odell, and KXI-86 in Crescent City.  De Witt County is also covered by WXJ-75 in Springfield, and KZZ-65 in Bloomington. Vermilion County is also covered by KXI-86 in Crescent City.  Moultrie County is also covered by station KXI-46 in Shelby County.
