New AWIS phone numbers!
If you have a bunch of saved AWIS phone numbers in your phone, this notice is for you! You need to CHECK these numbers as they may have recently changed. Earlier in 2019 the BoM changed its technology arrangements and the contract for the phone dial in services for AWIS stations nationally. This meant that all the phone numbers in use had to be changed.
The redirect service currently in place expires soon, this means that the old numbers will stop working!
We’ve been told that the popular AWIS app has already been updated to the new numbers. But for those who rely on saved numbers in their phones, you need to check the numbers have been updated otherwise you may end up talking to Mrs Jones or Mr Smith, not the local AWIS at your destination!
