In May 2007 Noonsite reported that the United States Coast Guard was seeking public comment on the need to continue providing high frequency (HF) radio broadcasts of weather forecasts and warnings.

After an extensive review and following a "substantial public response that overwhelmingly urged the continuation of these services" the Coast Guard has concluded that it was necessary to continue HF weather broadcasts.

The business case study with the USCG findings, “An Impact Assessment of Discontinuing USCG High-Frequency Radio Broadcasts of NWS Marine Weather Forecasts” is available online at: www.navcen.uscg.gov/marcomms/high_frequency/HF-WX_notice.htm
