I heard on the radio this morning that Joplin will be getting a new NOAA weather radio transmitter. It will be located on top of the Joplin City Hall and transmit at 300 watts. This will cover all of Jasper county and make for a much clearer signal than we are used to getting here in the Joplin area. Currently most Jasper County residents receive NOAA weather radio from either Newton County or Avilla. The estimated time of installation will be May or June.
This means that you will need to reprogram your receiver if you plan on monitoring the new transmitter.
Watch for a PSA push some time in the next few months.

|Scanner with Raspberry Pi|
used to feed audio to Radio Reference. The scanner feeds audio through a USB sound card that is connected to the Pi. This means no more dedicated computer to worry about. The Pi is a 700mhz, 512 ram computer that is able to run 4 versions of Linux. The Pi has GPIO pins that can be used for projects that range from robotics to media servers. I have a lot more to explore and will post my future projects.
