Description

The channel names in your NOAA Weather Alert stock config are not entirely accurate.

Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_radio#Governmental_weather_radio_services

I'd like to submit the attached file as a suggested replacement, which includes the long-time understood "WX1 to WX7" names, and the newer "Public Alert" names, based on the above Wikipedia article and its cited sources.

Peter,

The stock config files are in CSV format. You might want to resubmit what you have in that format.

Also, the "/" may not be a valid character for all radios. Someone else might know better if this will be an issue or not.

Jim,

Thanks for the tips. I suspect you may be right about the / character, but I don't know for sure.
