Nice add to my weather devices including 5-1 Weather Station.
Living in Central Illinois, I've seen some pretty wicked weather and I felt I needed a weather radio for me and my family to be prepared for anything that comes along - Acu-Rite NOAA Weather Radio with S.A.M.E. fits my needs perfectly. Thanks for a great product and keeping my family safe.
Very easy to set up. Works great here in South Florida.
Got it for Christmas, took it out of the box went on line to get my FIPS code entered my code and ran the quick set up. Works great! Excellent reception. I work in the public works field and this radio will be an excellent addition to our department. Great product, Thank You!
This unit works fine - just seems much bigger than it needs to be - takes up a lot of space on the counter.
We have peace of mind when we go to sleep great alert system We live in Tn. a must.
The set up is simple you just have to get a code online. The back lighting makes it much easier to read. It has battery backup in case you lose power and is a nice looking unit to keep your family safe.
We purchased the weather-system radio because we live in a hurricane-prone area on the Florida Keys. Here, tornadoes can occasionally form in storms and the storms themselves can range from mild to fierce. Alerts and warnings keep us aware of what is going on around us so that we may take protective action.
Shortly after we purchased the radio, we were hit by heavy rains and flood warnings - before and during which the radio performed admirably and gave us the knowledge and advanced warnings that we needed to protect ourselves and our property.
We would recommend it to anyone who lives in an area where weather can turn violent.
The quick programming was great, took only a few minutes, and I really like that it can be set to only start alarm if there is an actual warning. during advisorys and watches I can set it to get flashing light instead
I purchased two of the Weather Radios. One for a friend in Wisconsin one for myself in Arizona. I'm not expecting mine in Arizona to get much of a workout, but the one in Wisconsin has already paid for itself by warning of sever thunderstorm in the area and my friend was able to get her dog in and get the car in the garage and close things up before a massive storm blew through. Many cars in the area had hail damage but my friend was able to get her car in the garage before the storm hit because of the warning.
I really like the AA battery backup as that is a common size that we use. Programming was simple. SAME technology is fantastic. Our old wx radio has sent us to the basement a few times due to late night tornadoes in our county in VA. Otherwise, it just sits there on guard duty to let us know of inclement wx.
I choose this weather radio based on reviews I read by other buyers. The reviewers knew a lot about weather radios and I trusted what they said. This radio was easy to set up, I used the S.A.M.E function b/c the first night every alert from the whole metro area sounded and completely disturbed our sleep, so we now have it only set to alert our county. Works great and I feel much safer having it next to the bed
We are in Birmingham, AL and recently slept through a tornado siren. The tornado caused tremendous damage. We needed something to wake the dead and this Weather radio will do the trick. No one could sleep through its siren!
We bought this after a EF0 came by us. With the power out, and it being dark out, we were wishing we had something like this so we'd know if worse weather was coming. This radio's alarm is LOUD, has battery back up, and I can press a button at any time to hear the forecast. It takes up very little space and was very simple to set up. Can't go wrong with this radio.
It took me about 5 mintutes to set it up, the manual was very easy to follow. As I was looking on line to see if I did every thing right, and how to tell if the radio was working, the alarm when off telling me my county was under a tornadoes warning. I could not believe this, the TV had just told us we were in the clear. Because of this radio my family and I when to the basement of our home and was safe. I awoke this morning to find others was not so lucky.
