The Notion Collective, Station Identification

Check out these internet radio images:

The Notion Collective, Station Identification

Image by Northern Spark
Station Identification is an interactive exploration of the Twin Cities’ radio landscape, which will be broadcasting (and receiving) live radio feed from the Foshay Tower observation deck. WNYC, KNOW, KCRW, KUT, KEXP, WHYY, WWOZ, WBEZ, WOLX, WORT — these are letters that may mean nothing or everything to you depending on where you’ve lived and what you’ve listened to. As radio call signs, they can be as much a part of a city’s landscape as lakes, rivers, skyways, and freeways are.

Station Identification explores this relationship by transforming the Foshay Tower’s observation deck into a radio compass. Each radio’s placement corresponds to the direction that station is broadcasting from, providing audience members a connection between what is playing and where it is sourced. Walking through the space — an open-air deck encircling the tower’s peak — is like scanning the radio dial with your feet.

Additionally, Station Identification welcomes participants to respond to their experience using a temporary Internet radio station located on the deck. Accessible at: n.otion.co/si, we are broadcasting live throughout the night, both participants and remote listeners can tune in to this radio programming inspired by and made, in part, for its very own location.

A Comprehensive Review Of Emergency Weather Radios

There are many different advantages associated with emergency weather radios. Regardless of where you live, or the emergency conditions that you may be subjected to, weather radios have the capability of providing you with the detailed information that you need in order to preparing for situations that could potentially endanger the health and safety of yourself, as well as your loved ones. Many individuals that have experienced severe weather conditions in their area such as tornadoes and hurricanes have successfully made it through such dangers by adhering to the alerts issued on emergency weather radios. Throughout this guide, you will learn important details pertaining to weather radios.

An emergency weather radio uses the nationwide network of a variety of radio based stations known as “NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards” or “NWR”. When you incorporate a weather radio into your home, the broadcasts that you receive will come from an office that is in near proximity to your area. The office is a branch from the National Weather Service. This service offers warnings, various types of watches, an assortment of forecasts, and other types of information that directly pertain to potential hazards that could directly impact yourself and your loved ones. This information is offered twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Many individuals enjoy the benefit of receiving detailed weather information at any time of the day.

Many individuals believe that emergency weather radios only offer information pertaining to weather hazards. This is the number one reason why many fail to purchase weather radios. These individuals typically live in an area where the weather is fair and they believe that if an emergency arises they will be able to acquire the information that they need through other means such as a television news broadcasts or a standard radio. However, weather radios provide in depth information around the clock on more than just weather emergencies. They also provide information on natural disasters, chemical related emergencies, and other types of public emergencies.

There are many different types of emergency weather radios available on the market today. In order to choose one, you must consider your lifestyle, your budget, and your overall needs as they pertain to protecting yourself and your loved ones. If you travel a lot, for example, you may benefit from weather radios that are portable in nature. If you live in areas that are known to experience severe weather such as Florida, you may benefit from a radio that has a large number of functions and alert features. If you are on a limited budget, you will likely benefit from radios that simply turn on and off and run broadcasts accordingly. There are many different models and features in emergency radios that will benefit you in numerous ways. Taking the steps to prepare for an emergency situation is essential to surviving such a situation. By evaluating and choosing among the many emergency weather radios on the market today, you will increase your chance of survival.

At Shortwave Radio Gear we take pride in offering a versatile selection of top-quality shortwave,emergency powered, emergency weather radios, and two-way radios for every level of listener from the first timer to the seasoned radio enthusiast.
