    Re: NOAA Weather Radios

    I got this one about 4 years ago and it's worked perfectly for me.

    About $35 It's a Maxon WX-70 and I think I got it at Radio Shack.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Re: NOAA Weather Radios

    Just noticed this thread, or I would have replied earlier.
    We have a Midland Weather Radio that is almost identical to the First Alert one you posted.
    Both are excellent brands.
    You can program in your region and set which specific alerts you want to sound alarms.
    http://www.midlandradio.com/comersus/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=3106

    Even though we live in the city we have found this very useful.
    If a Tornado Warning goes off in the middle of the night, it wakes us up.
    Once the tornado was less than 10 miles away.
    Kinda scary that we could have easily slept through a disaster.

    We also have it set for flood warnings (a must in eastern ND), Amber alerts, TStorm warnings, and Wind CHill Warnings.
    It picks up something like 80 different kinds of alerts, and just displays them in the digital readout if it isn't one of the ones we want an alarm for.

    Pretty cheap price for peace of mind if you live anywhere where there is a high risk of tornadoes.

    That's what I'm looking for.
    We sleep with a White Noise machine, and I doubt my ability to wake up when the storm sirens go off in the summer at night.

    Don't worry, the siren will wake you up no matter how hard you sleep. My radio is in the next room and when it goes off it is loud!

    Amen to that.
    Ours is louder than both our smoke alarm and CO alarm.

    I was referring to the outside storm sirens which the city runs, but I'm glad to hear that the weather radio is going to wake me up!
