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.
