    This is a pretty good deal on weather radios. 2 for $25. These have S.A.M.E. so you can program for counties and hazards. Severe weather season is almost upon us!

    I got a pair. Keep one and gift the other. The reviews say they are difficult to program... guess I'll find out.

    A few of those reviews were also written by idiots who couldn't even type a clear sentance... though thats not to say there won't be challenges with it.


    I got a pair... where I live I don't get as many tornados as in Iowa, and rarely get Hurricanes, but I like to camp and want to take up Kayaking as well... and we did have several tornados and a hurricane watch last year so probably not a bad thing to have lying around


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Weather Radio's - Woot.com - Cheap!

    heh heh my weather radio needs to get here - I just got a pop up at work saying I have a severe Thunderstorm watch or warning in effect (I forget which) and the NWS said there is a Tornado Watch until 10

    It's spring time

    They are fine for what they do, but you can't program the hazard. Only the county. I'd recommend one more robust unless you like getting woken up at 300am for a Severe Thunderstorm Watch.

    Pretty sure you can program the hazard. You can with the 3 we have...yeah I know...

    Maybe they are different models.

    Midland Radio

    This one is listed as 100B, but I'm pretty sure you can't do the hazard too.
