I contacted customer service.

I think the best feature about this radio is that we can program it to alert us only when counties we are interested in have weather messages.
K. Valentine
If you follow the steps in the manual it is easy to program.

My husband and I live in the southern U.S., which is starting to get tornadoes on the scale of what you might expect in Oklahoma and Kansas (we don't get the big F-4s and F-5s, but in one recent year our state had 36 funnel clouds in the month of April alone). In the springtime it can seem like you get a tornado watch or warning every other day. Since all the houses around here are built on limestone and we don't have a basement, it's prudent to pay attention to the weather so you can start getting your gear together to build up a bunker in your bathroom or inner hallway if it's looking like your house may get hit by the big one.

We bought one of these radios three years ago b/c we live right on the edge between two big counties, and it seemed a good idea to be able to receive weather warnings from both of them. We liked the radio so much we came back right away and bought another one....Then a third one after one of the first two suffered an acid leak from one of the AA batteries we put in it and quit working without A/C power. We get A LOT of power outages, so we needed to get another battery-op radio, now I'm back here buying another one to give my mom....

Things I like about this radio:

* It is LOUD. When the siren goes off, you can hear it on the other end of the house, and the volume telling you what's going on is loud too. You don't want to have to be fooling around with the volume switch if the message is 'TORNADO WARNING FOR YOUR AREA, GET IN THE CLOSET NOW.'

* You can modify the alerts. I set the weekly alarm not to sound the siren, and we really don't need to get waked up at 3 AM to be told there's a "thunderstorm watch".

I originally bought the Midland WR300 Weather Radio, and was so disappointed in its performance, that I went and read more of the 500+ reviews on that product. Based upon a few of the reviews, I ended up purchasing this item from Reecom, and returning the Midland.

Much better backlight (green vs the Midland's blue), and the biggest and most important difference is its simple setup and programming compared to the Midland.

Don't be fooled by the Midland's high ratings.

The Reecom costs a little more, but well worth the money.

This is a very good weather radio with S.A.M.E. It's not perfect, but as close as any will come. Programming is cumbersome, performance is excellent. My wife and I sleep on a different level of our home than our children and I trust my family's life with this product. I have tried many and wouldn't use any other product on the market right now. Would get five stars if programming were a little more user-friendly.

After an easy and relatively quick setup, inputting my county codes off the internet, this radio began picking up weather alerts immediately. I love the fact that I can disable the loud sirens so that we aren't disturbed during the night. The LED's which flash when an alert is received are enough for us. Also like the fact that the alert info is flashed across the display.

Reception is decent, weather bands come in strong. Not hi-def or stereo, but that isn't it's function. It's also not as attractive as the Boston Acoustics Receptor that it replaced, but I can deal with the tradeoff. I bought this for it's function, which it does very well.

EDIT, 3/2/12: A few months ago I started noticing that the radio would not play through the speaker when turned on. In fact, none of the beeps or other sounds that it usually made through the speaker would be heard. Then, for no apparent reason, I'd hear a "click" from the speaker and things would be back to normal. Well, as of today, the thing is basically mute. No sound at all from the speaker. I went to the Reecom website looking for some help. Yeah, right. Then I read the recent reviews here and elsewhere about Reecom basically having no customer support at all. Not a company that we, the consumers, should be supporting with our money.

I'll chalk this one up to "lesson learned". I should've researched this product and the company better, although when I bought this turkey there wasn't as much feedback as there is now. The radio is beyond warranty and I don't trust it anymore anyway. I'll buy a Sangean or a Midland. Reecom is junk.

UPDATE, 12/30/12:
I decided to try the well-known repair procedure for all electronic equipment: I smacked the back of the radio a few times. It seems to have fixed the radio! It doesn't inspire much confidence though. So this radio sits downstairs and is hardly used. It's junk. The Sangean is a much better option in this type of radio.

Great radio packed with features.
This is my second purchase. The first one was given as a gift to my father.

The only item I do not like about the radio is the digital volume control. I like to set the music soft when going to bed and it seems the adjustment is too soft or too loud, unable to fine adjust.

Don't lose the owner's manual. You will not be able to program the radio without it. I suggest putting the manual in a zip top bag and taping it to the bottom of the radio.

5-30-2008. I have purchased four of these units for my family and recommended it to many friends. I did extensive research on current products and the Reecom unit is by far the best inexpensive radio (under $100) of its type on the market. If you want great service, reliable performance and the comfort of knowing that you will recieve available weather alerts during emergencies, then this unit is the one you want. I have no complaints after two years of service. My wife relies on it. It is so flexible that you can turn off alerts you do not want and it has a lot of useful features.

10-7-2012. I'm still very pleased with the Reecom R-1650 Weather Alert All Hazard Alert Radio with S.A.M.E and AM/FM Clock Radio after 4.5 years and am buying more as gifts. The warranty is only for one year, but my experience has been flawless for these 4.5 years, so I have NO complaints. There still isn't another radio that performs like this one at this price (which is lower than it used to be).
