AM/FM Weather Alert Radio is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Midland WR-300 that I have owned now for a few years works great! I’ve already implemented the new SAME codes that were recently released. To my surprise, despite the fact that the antenna broke in half (mostly due to poor storage conditions), and the battery cover was also lost, the batteries remain intact and the radio works just fine! A quality product that I can definitely suggest to my family members!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My old Midland Weather Alert Radio finally died after 15+ years of service. Naturally, I thought I couldn't go wrong with purchasing another Midland to replace it. Through the many waves of severe weather we have experienced this spring, this new Midland radio has performed great. This model has more bells and whistles than I need, but has been well worth the price for the reliability and peace of mind. Thanks Midland. I hope this one lasts as long as the last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for Local/National Emergencies I bought the emergency radio after our last electrical outage. My criteria was that it had to have emergency notification, run on ac with a battery backup. In less than a month I have received two emergency notices. Neither one directly affected me, but it is nice to know that I have a notification if/when an emergency happens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lots of little things wrong 1. Terrible display, no where near the contrast as the picture shows, nor are the digit segments as thick. Very limited viewing angle. Backlight so bright it burns your eyes at night. 2. Doesn't seem to work when the volume switch is in the off position, but it doesn't say that any place in the manual. No place to disable volume beep, so if you hit a button to light the backlight it beeps, sometimes twice depending on what button you press. 3. Description on website says AM/FM stereo, kind of hard to do with one speaker 4. Menu options that aren't mentioned in the manual If they didn't sweat the small stuff what kind of engineering went into the actual radio?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average product for the price We purchased this product to replace an old Radio Shack model which has not been working right. Programming is a little confusing, but not impossible. The one exception is the display of the AM/PM indication for the time. It is so tiny on the display, that you need a magnifying glass to see it. We would highly recommend a redesign of that indicator to make it easier to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Radio I am extremely pleased with this radio. It has great sound, and it offers a tremendous number of features. I live in an area where severe storms are fairly common, so this radio will have a permanent place with my emergency gear. The WR300 is exactly what I was looking for in a weather radio.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Display not as advertised While this weather radio has lots of features and was easy (for me) to set up/program, the display is extremely difficult to view and is not anything like what's pictured. The text is very 'thin' and can't be seen except when looking at it from the front (any other angle such as directly above and you can't see a thing on the display). When I called customer service i was told that's the way this modal performs. If you don't care to see the display text/icons, then this is a decent weather radio.

How long do the batteries last on backup? If I am listening continuously?

Asked by: Jb2001
Hello! This depends on the volume level, a set of 2500 mAh batteries would last about 13 hours at max volume and about 30 hrs at min volume.

Can this radio sort out different types of alerts, for specific events? Can the events that I'm not interested in be disabled?

Asked by: sara
This radio has (2) alert types; voice or siren. You can program the WR300 weather radio to only sound the voice or siren alert for certain weather emergency messages. Those messages unimportant to you can be programmed to only display a message, minimizing annoyance. It is important to note that there are a few alerts that cannot be disabled as a function of this radio. This would include things like Tornado Warning, Hurricane Warning, Volcano Warning, etc. As you can see, some of these programmed alerts will likely never go off in some areas but it is always ready when the National Weather Service needs to send out the alert to that area affected.
