The Sangean CL-100 Weather Alert Radio
Public Alert Certified weather radio receives reports on severe weather conditions

The Sangean CL-100 Weather Alert Radio
Featuring a large LCD display that can scroll through S.A.M.E event information. View top panel

The Sangean CL-100 Weather Alert Radio
Connect external sources such as CD and MP3 players. View larger

Sangean's new compact Table-Top S.A.M.E. Weather Alert Radio is loaded with all the key features. The CL-100 is a Public Alert Certified weather radio and receives all NOAA reports informing people about severe weather advisories, monitors and warning conditions, civil emergencies, hazards, and evacuation details, so you can have more time to react before dangerous storms hit your area. When you're in a tornado path, seconds can mean the difference between life and death and that's when the Sangean CL-100 comes into play.

LCD Scrolling Display

The CL-100 has a graphic LCM (128 x 64 pixels) LCD module with excellent display quality and a wide viewing angle. It can scroll S.A.M.E. event information across the LCD display. In addition, the CL-100 has dimmer and contrast control adjustment for viewing the display in the dark.

Digital Signal Processing with 5 Station Presets

It adopts a digital signal processing (DSP) chip and features up to 5 station presets for each AM/FM band. Using the preset buttons saves you time when searching for your favorites. The CL-100 has an auto-station-search function. It scans all available radio frequencies and finds the strongest AM/FM signal. It's equipped with RBDS capabilities, which means the signal is decoded by an RBDS receiver and can provides a range of informational features including Program Service (PS) name, Radio Text (RT) message, Clock Time (CT) and Date.

Dual Alarm and Auto Shutoff Features

The CL-100 is a perfect bedside alarm clock. You can set dual alarm times and choose waking to AM/FM radio or HWS (Human Wake-up System) buzzer alarms. There's also a snooze button. In addition, the sleep timer can be set from 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, to 120 minutes. The radio can be turned off automatically, so you can fall asleep to the music and then later gently awaken you with the news, music or alarm....the bass and treble can be adjusted as well to get the crisp crystal clear audio sound.

Store up to 25 County Codes

Finding the S.A.M.E. county codes on NOAA's web-site is easy and you can simply program them into the CL-100 and store up to 25 county codes and easily program them to sound alerts for surrounding counties as well your area's weather forecast. You can also retain the latest 20 event message memories.

Connect External Sources Such As CD and MP3 Players

A 3.5mm stereo Auxiliary Input socket is provided on the rear of the CL-100 to allow an audio signal to be fed into the unit from an external audio device such as MP3 or CD player.

The CL-100 has a built-in external alert output jack for other accessories (e.g. hearing/visually impaired, flashing light, in/outdoor siren/alarm). You can also set the date, weekday and time on a digital watch manually or automatically by RBDS CT set.

Two Ways to Use Your Antenna

The CL-100 can function with either fixed/embedded antennas for great reception of AM/FM/Weather from all directions, or you may purchase the optional ANT-100 magnetic spiral antenna to zero in on distant or weak stations in remote areas. Feeling safe is nothing like owning a Sangean CL-100, knowing that you can wake up when danger is approaching.

This radio is very easy to program.
Mike DeMarco
Also, there is no way to adjust the display's angle, making it hard to read unless the radio is at a level well below the bed, whatever the contrast setting.
W. Austin
I like that you can set the counties that you want to get alerts for, so it's not going off for thunderstorm watches 100 miles away at 2AM.

I've owned many weather radio's over the years and I like this one the best. Sound quality is very good on this radio. It has a good size speaker and bass / treb controls. The voice of the weather service is very clean and clear on this radio. The display is excellent. It displays all relevant information and is easily viewed from almost any angle. It has a brightness and contrast control as well as the ability to program the duration that the back light remains lit. Build quality is superb.

Update 01/25/2011: I have found a few minor annoyances with this radio. It allows you to disable the alert siren for things like the Required Weekly Test BUT you cannot disable the Voice Alert for the same alerts. What this means is that if your receiver is set to VOICE mode rather than Siren then you cannot disable the alert and are still forced to hear it go off. Also, you cannot set the alert volume for Voice Alert. I just got a Tornado warning and the damn thing blasts you out of the room at full volume. I don't know why Sangean overlooked this. If your radio is set to Siren you can set it to LOW, MEDIUM or HIGH volume.

I wonder if there will be some sort of software or firmware upgrade because in the menu there is a way to display the software version. Mine is version 1.11 dated June 24, 2010

UPDATE: 06/22/2011 Sangean generously offered to update the firmware on my radio. The firmware version that I now have is 1.13 dated October 08, 2010. The radio now allows me to defeat a VOICE Alert and I've just verified that the "Required Weekly Test" does not set off the radio. It still shows the Advisory LED and a readout tells you what is going on but the radio is silent. YAY!

So I've been trying to find a decent weather radio. One that you can disable certain alerts, one that pays attention to EOM (end of message) and one that doesn't look like junk sitting on the kitchen counter.

So far I've been blown away with the quality of this radio. Everything from the button feel to the LCD display is excellent. Surprisingly the quality of the internal speaker is good as well, the sound is nice.

Feature wise...

The radio does allow you to disable alerts! And it's easy to disable them as well. This is very useful when you don't care to be woken up for a thunderstorm *watch*.

The radio pays attention to EOM! At then end of each voice alert broadcast they play a tone to signify EOM (end of message). When the radio hears this tone it mutes itself. This is great if your in bed, laying down, in the other room or just don't want to go over to the radio. The radio will play the alert message then mute itself once the message is over. Some units like the midland (nearly every model they make) doesn't pay attention to this, and you get to keep hearing the same alert message repeating over and over until the 15 minute timer runs out.

The time and date will automatically set itself if you point it to a FM radio station that broadcasts the time/date via RDS. (I had to try a few different stations that broadcast RDS until I found one that did this; seems not all of them do in my area)

FM radio reception is excellent. To boot you get to see song name/Artist and radio station information scrolling on the screen.

I did find some of the instructions to be a bit not well translated. Like you have to have the weather radio set to "ON" or the "weather" button doesn't work. But really this is minor stuff, and you'll forget about it once you use it.

This radio is really a home run: great features, high quality and good aesthetics.

(See additional comments at end of this review which is being written 9/3/2013)

In the past couple of years I have bought & returned SAME weather radios from several manufacturers (Radio Shack, Midland, Reecom and First Alert) due to poor quality and/or poor functionality.

I have owned a Sangean pocket radio for 6 years which works as if it is brand new so I was expecting the SL-100 to be a good radio. It has exceeded my expectations !! The SAME weather radio is easy to program & works perfectly. Sound quality is excellent for a small tabletop radio. The alarm clock works well also.

My only "complaint" is that the instruction booklet has some minor errors and could use some tweaking. However programming of this radio is somewhat intuitive even for someone like me who is technically challenged

Based on some recent negative reviews I want to add a comment as I now have owned this product for 3 years.

Some reviewers have complained that they do not receive NOAA weather alerts. If you have that problem make sure the antenna is in the extended position. Since moving to Tucson AZ last year I have discovered I do not receive alerts if the antenna is in "resting" position. I did not have this issue in Chicago. This is likely because NOAA weather radio station in Tucson has a weak 100 watt signal compared to the 1000 watt signal in Chicago !

The antenna may also need to be extended to receive optimal AM/FM radio reception

I continue to highly recommend this product 3 years after purchase !

I bought this radio primarily for weather but the text display and FM radio functions were a bonus.

It sat in the shipping box for several weeks as we moved into our new home. I was tempted to give it
a good review based on looks alone just to stop that annoying e-mail from Amazon, requesting my
feedback. My previous radio was a Midland did the job but was not anything to brag about... it was ok.

Here in NC, Spring brings many thunderstorm... an event I have found to be very predictable in that it has
occured every year for the last 8 years that I have been here. After two thunderstorms went by, I decided
to at least set it for thunderstorm/tornado activity for our county and the surrounding counties. I have a wife
and a toddler and I could not help but think, "What if the last two storms were worse and my radio did not
warn us."

April 16th started off like any other day. Almost everyone knew we were going to get thunderstorms that day. I decided against cutting the lawn because it felt unusually cold outside, not to mention the clouds were extremely low, dark and moving quickly across the sky. We hung around the house and all day long there was no rain, and the clouds were not as dark anymore. We went to do some light shopping and overheard the Walmart cashier whisper, "There's a tornado in Cary" to another employee. My wife took notice of the higher than normal number of managers walking around the store. Fortunately we were only 5 minutes from the house.

Listening to the television, we got the closet under the stairs prepared. At that time, I could not figure out what was making such a noise upstairs and decided to check it out.
