KBA99 is a NOAA Weather Radio station that serves Honolulu and surrounding islands. It is programmed from the National Weather Service forecast office in Honolulu, Hawaii with its transmitter located on Mt. Ka'ala in Oahu. It broadcasts weather and hazard information for the Greater Honolulu area, however several repeater stations are added to serve the entire state of Hawaii as well as 40 miles into the Pacific Ocean.


All transmitters broadcast with a power output of 1,000 Watts unless otherwise noted.

Circle 6888A6.gif = For the Big Island transmitters: when severe weather occurs, these stations will break away from the KBA99 simulcast to broadcast hazardous watches and warnings. Flash flood warnings for the other islands will not be broadcasted on the transmitters.[1]
