Pocket Weather Alert Radio is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for 5 seconds I bought this pocket weather radio for the great reviews I saw online. Opened it up, threw away the packaging and left it on my dresser when it was time for sever weather. Couple of weeks later, we had sever weather. I put in the batteries and turned on the radio and It came on for 5 seconds and went off. I thought maybe it was the batteries. I put a new set of batteries in and the radio wouldn't come on. Tried the alert mode and pushed the button and nothing. Thought about buying a desk top Midland radio, but I liked having a portable NOAA radio for travel. Not a happy camper.

Will the radio pick up signals in all types of mountainous terrain?

Asked by: RayW
Hello! Best range will be achieved outdoors in open rural areas without obstructions, or on flat areas. The "up to" range is under optimal conditions (ex: over open water, desert, or mountain top to mountain top). As with all two way radios, any obstructions between radios will reduce the range.

does this model have SAME technology?

Asked by: snowy
It does not. What it does is search for the closest NWS transmitter in the area you are in. It is quite handy for travel.

Would this radio pick up signal from inside steel storm shelter?

Asked by: SE_Gardener
It is difficult to say, as we no nothing about the area you are in (ie how near you are to a NOAA transmitter) or the structure itself. This radio will work if you are within 30 miles of a tower, but the signal may be blocked by the composition of the shelter. It is an inexpensive little radio that is incredibly helpful, so we would suggest you pick one up and test it out. If anything else, it will let you know when to head to your storm shelter!

how long will batterys last on alert all time (average)

Asked by: dazy
Hello there, that is a hard question to answer since we cannot know how many times alerts will be sent out, or what batteries you are using. We suggest that you place the radio into Alert Mode when you know there is a chance for severe weather in your area. We would say if you leave it on Alert Mode without knowing anything else, you should still get up to 48 - 72 hours before the batteries are drained.
