Deluxe NOAA Weather Radio is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only minor issues I have had this product for over a week an I am very pleased with it. The only two incidences of problems I’ve noticed is that when setting up the radio, it glitched out for some reason and I had to take out the batteries and reset it. It is unknown to me what caused the glitch but is presumed to be the overloading of some of the inputs. I have not had this glitch since then. There is also the problem that whenever I plug the phone in with the radio turn on, I hear more static and I have to remove it in order to get clearer audio. Other than that, I have no other problems with it. The reception is excellent. The alarm feature works so nicely that I have decided to use it in place of my cell phone. I am very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best one yet!!! This is an amazing radio. Midland's best product yet!!! I have had this radio for about 2 months now. The reception is amazing. I can get a transmitter that is nearly about 100 miles. And I live in a very industrial town. This is top quality yet. And I have one good or bad thing that anyone would like. The alarm clock buzzer. It is the loudest buzzer I have ever heard. I woke up thinking there was a TOR issued. Anyways, Top quality, and TRULY AMAZING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a collector of NOAA Weather Radios. I can say that this is one of the best weather radios in my collection. However, I’m giving it technically 4.5 stars mainly because the add alerts function does not exist on this radio and the fact that the very loud siren cannot be turned down (except with some clear tape which put it down to an acceptable volume). Aside from those things, this was well worth the money, and it includes all the features from the previous Midland Radios plus new ones such as the USB charging, backlight adjustment, unique mini-USB AC adapter, reception meter, and many more! We’ve had two days straight of severe weather and this radio has received all alerts even in touch-and-go reception from using distant transmitters. This radio is a perfect gift to yourself, a friend, or a family member for warnings of severe weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alert radio! This radio was very inexpensive, yet could easily save our lives. I have always lived in the tornado valley of Kansas. We depend upon the city sirens to alert us. When my wife and I go to bed, however, she turns on her sound machine, and out home is well insulated from sound. We just don't hear the sirens. This radio serves as my bedside clock radio, and, when alerting, raises us right out of the bed. It is yet another quality product from a company I have learned to trust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi Purpose Weather Radio I have several Midland Weather Radios at home already and ordered a new one (Midland Radio - Deluxe NOAA Weather Radio) to take on the road while working out of state across the USA. I really like the backlight screen, as it serves as a nightlight in bedroom too. Used the Alarm Clock for first time this morning and set it to come on to hear the news on an AM Radio Station. Thanks for a Great Product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unsurpassible Dear Midland; The WR400 Weather Alert Radio has excellent reception and expansive programmability - the power to pull in distant service areas and maintains clarity of sound in both modes of operation, plug in and portable. I appreciate its alarm feature as well as its technical attractiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice radio Bought this for my wife, who is running a business for us in the midwest in tornado alley. After she was surprised by a tornado siren one evening, I decided I needed her to have something that could warn her of approaching storms, etc in the area. The rado allows you to include surrounding counties as monitored areas. Was fairly easy to set up. Wife feels more secure, now that she knows she will have early warning of any severe weather there and in the surrounding areas

Can I set the alarm clock to weather band? In other words: I want to wake up to the weather broadcast. The manual says am/fm or buzzer.

Asked by: AndrewinNorthCarolina
Currently, you cannot set any of our Weather Radio Alarm clocks to wake you up to NOAA Weather Radio. However, once the alarm clock goes off, you can always press the WEATHER/SNOOZE button to hear the latest NOAA Weather Radio broadcast.

Is there any reason to go back and enter the S.A.M.E codes after one has selected the desired county(counties) from the menu in the quickstart set up?

Asked by: Jeffington
No, there is not. That function was handled automatically when you chose your county or counties from the alphabetical list.

I’m working on setting up the events, but when I went through them all, Tornado Warning isn’t an option. Is this correct????

Asked by: SamK
Tornado Warning is hard coded into the radio and cannot be turned off. Here is the chart of all of the alerts. https://midlandusa.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/WR120-Selectable-Alert-Reference-Chart.pdf

Is this radio capable of hanging from a wall or is this only a desktop radio?

Asked by: GW1776
This particular model is desktop only. If you are wanting a weather radio to hang from the wall we recommend the WR120.

Is it possible to set the radio to monitor more than one NWS broadcast station in case one station goes off the air?

Asked by: Pete.
Hey Pete, the NWS NOAA transmissions are constantly transmitting so you would want to pick the strongest signal in your area. There is no need to set more than one, as they all share the same information. Make sure to set your S.A.M.E code for your area, you can program another area to receive alerts from in that process as well. If you ever have a question about a NOAA tower being down, etc check https://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/coverage/county_coverage.html
