Confused IS ANYONE HAVING PROBLEMS RECEIVING MARINE WEATHER ON THEIR RADIOS? IF SO, DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY?

I have been having a problem for the last 2 months receiving the transmission on all my VHF's. Just get blank air, nothing else. I thought it was a problem just on my vessel but been hearing issues throughout. I do not know why....Confused

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IS WORKING WITH SEVERAL U.S. GOVERNMENT
AGENCIES TO ISOLATE AND RESOLVE THIS TECHNICAL PROBLEM. WE HAVE
INSTALLED A FILTER ON THE NYC TRANSMITTER...WHICH REDUCED...BUT DID

FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE.

WE CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE U.S. COAST GUARD TO RESOLVE THIS

All of a sudden after years of broadcasting its causing static on 16. I call BS and agree on cutbacks.

That sucks. If it's intermod interference, they have to find the second signal that's causing the issue and take steps to block it. But that's tough to find, especially if it's not continuous. If it's not intermod, they should swap the transmitter to another frequency. They're authorized to use one of seven possible frequencies, just have to find one least able to interfere with another nearby transmitter. Given it's a gov't agency and doing things quickly may not happen, but enough voicemails/emails complaining and asking for a important marine resource to be restored may help.

The last few times I used the coast guard weather on my marine radio all I got was static. Maybe that's the reason?
