Are the NOAA weather broadcasts AM or FM?  I bought a Radio shack multiband
radio the other day for RFI finding, which covers both the aviation band
and 145-175 MHz, including weather broadcasts.  Band noise on the latter
between stations appears to be much louder than in the aircraft band.  I'm
not sure if it's just dead on the aviation band or what, though I am
hearing some aircraft and tower signals from the local airport....
