AM/FM Weather Alert Radio is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a great alarm clock Bought this to replace both my old weather alert station and my alarm clock, wanting to replace two devices with one. Problem with using it as your main alarm clock, is the display is hard to see on it. You have to be at just the right angle/height. You also can’t see the display at night without turning the backlight on, which is way to bright it a dark room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I bought this for my mother who was really wanting an am/fm radio. I thought having the weather alert would be a great bonus. Turns out the weather report comes in well but the am/fm barely gets any stations. The few that do come in sound like they’re traveling through a tin can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! Easy to program and love the ability to set the siren to "Low”. One change I’d suggest is making the characters and icons larger. They are small and are hard to see even when the backlight is on. They need to be a little larger and bold. Plan to buy one for my granddaughter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Set up! We bought three of these units and placed them in key locations in our manufacturing plant. The very next day we had a Tornado warning. Everyone was fine and there was no damage, but the radios helped to keep those sheltered informed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great I’ve had this radio for many years as we live in the tornado belt. It, along with our storm shelter, have been life savers..that is until this season when the weather portion of the radio died. I need those precious minutes it gave us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Some instructions fall short of clarity. Overall, the written instructions do suffice. The display viewing angle precludes reading from above. You must be at roughly a 45 degree or less angle to read the LCD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Selectable alerts are great I like the option to select the less critical alerts for our radio such as tsunami or high winds. I was surprised by the high quality of the AM/FM radio too. The overall sound quality is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a good radio AM/FM will definitely be a nice feature for you favorite songs, it's still a shame that you have to program in a SAME code, but it was a good christmas gift

If the power goes out will this unit continue to work of battery power?

Yes, that is exactly how this product works. Make sure to check the batteries in the unit at least every 6 months to ensure they are in good working order.

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.
