Channels 1 and 2 are the original frequencies. The other frequencies were added when closer station spacing resulted in interference.

Three additional frequences - 161.650 MHz, 161.775 MHz, and 163.275 MHz - are sometimes included in weather radios, although they are not used by NOAA/NWS. See National Weather Service Marine Forecasts, under Equipment, for more information on these additional frequencies.
