I have a number of so-called weather alert radios. Without fail they all have a myrid of features that really dont have a lot to do with simply giving me a weather forecast for my area. This one does, in a simple, straight-forward manner, provide me with a weather forecast and alert if I so choose, and thats basically it. It doesn't fry eggs, give the weather for China, text message, or any other questionably related functions. It is lightweight, simple to use and does what they say it will do.
What will they think of next!

I am absolutely delighted with this weather radio and have been recommending it to everyone I know! Having been frustrated by complicated radios that require code inputs depending on where you are, this one that you simply turn "on" is a huge relief. It automatically picks up the nearest NOAA signal. Last weekend it gave me, and several other campers huddled around it atop a mountain, the regional weather information (crystal clear reception) that we needed to make travel decisions. Last night, it gave me and colleagues critical information to plan commutes. When tornado watches have extended beyond bedtime, I simply click the lever up one more notch to "alert" knowing it will signal if severe weather happens overnight. This unit is a tremendous bargain. It's sleek, fits in a small purse. Anyone who lives east of the Rockies should have one of these nearby during tornado and hurricane season. I have two of these devices so that one will remain in my car and one will be in my purse.

I have an old portable AM/FM radio with weather band, but I was looking for something really compact with a weather alert feature that could be carried in a pocket or fanny pack. This one fits the bill. A nice feature: of the seven channels, it automatically scans for the strongest signal in your area. You can also cycle through all available channels manually. Simple to use with the quality of Midland!

Living in tornado country, you learn to pay attention to the weather.

Too many weather radios have tried to do too much, resulting in a product that's well-intended but baffling to operate. Or worse, one that underperforms in a critical area - reception! It's no good if you can't pick up a NOAA station, and having to hold the radio this way, that way, higher or lower, is unacceptable. In an emergency, your attention needs to be focused, not distracted.

So the idea of a small radio that just handles "picking up weather without any work" sounds great on paper, but it fails in execution. This radio never gets past just plain 'good'.

In short, here's how I would review the unit I received, from best to worst, and why:
* very simple operation (on/off/alert, 5 out of 5)
* good reception (sometimes requires "playing antenna," 4 out of 5)
* fair audio (from an average speaker, 3 out of 5)
* does not lock onto strongest signal (instead, locks onto first one it finds, 3 out of 5)
* no feedback while scanning (no sound at all, no indication that it's working, 2 out of 5)
* no indication of power status (unless you look at the switch position, 1 out of 5)
* no indication of battery power left (0 out of 5)

The operation is simple. The reception and audio quality are average, which I found disappointing but not a showstopper. The lack of feedback during scanning is more irksome. The lack of feedback (knowing power is on or off, or low) is a product killer. If I can't tell that I left it on, or that my batteries are low, how can I be sure this will have power to work when I need it? This unit needs to be able to beep, or blink an LED, when power is low.

I bought this radio hoping it would be OK and I would not have to ship it back. I was pleasantly suprised at what a good job this little (it is very small) radio does. It has had no problems receiving broadcasts and delivers clear crisp sound that is easily controlled for volume. It automatically searches for the strongest signal and is a no brainer to operate. I highly recommend it to campers and hikers and anyone that has a need for a small easily carried weather radio. It can also be set for alert mode whereby it will automatically come on if it receives an alert signal from NOAA. It has both a belt clip and a wrist strap. Well worth the small price.

This is exactly what I've been looking for. Very compact, simple to use, good reception, what more could you ask for. The price is also reasonable. My first CB base station was a Midland when I was a kid so I know I can trust them.

Small and lightweight. Autoscan worked well and immediately went to weather station which gave local weather report.Volume control increased sound to nice level. Very good sound quality for small unit.Alert option nice extra. Easy to use. Worked better than my larger weather radio w/o autoscan.

Just like this review, no bells or whistles on this radio. It works like it is supposed to.

The receiver is not super sensitive but very acceptable for what it was intended to do. The speaker is rather small but you can't put anything bigger in it. No bells or whistles but for the price you shouldn't expect any.

I bought this for my brother. He often drives from Louisville, Ky. to Indianapolis and the weather can be quite different there. He suffers lacerations at the cutting edge of technology. All he needs is something he can turn on and hear the weather. He doesn't care how many channels are available. This radio fits him fine. He turns it on, it finds a channel with a signal, he hears the weather report.

Here's the bottom line. If you need a no frills radio at a bargain basement price, I'd take a look at this one. This could also be a great radio for campers or backpackers. It's light weight and if you happened to loose it it's not like loosing that $98.99, do everyting radio.
