The transmitter will reach several counties in North Iowa and Southern Minnesota. At this point, the National Weather Service is carrying warning and forecast information over the St. Ansgar frequency (162.450) for the following counties: Cerro Gordo, Chickasaw, Floyd, Freeborn, Howard, Mitchell, Mower and Worth. Other NOAA weather radio transmitters are also operating in Mankato, Rochester, Forest City, Fort Dodge, Waterloo and Ringsted.
