AM/FM/NOAA Radio with 19 Memory Presets and Auto Scan
The built-in radio features AM/FM tuning, as well as NOAA weather bands. The PR-D9W has 19 memory presets to select your favorite stations, as well as an Auto Scan feature to help you find them. A siren function gives you NOAA weather alerts during emergencies to help you be prepared.
The PR-D9W 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 are also sleep and snooze functions (push any button except the power button to engage the snooze funtion while the alarm is active).

There are several options to power the PR-D9W, so you can be prepared in case of an emergency. In addition to regular AC power, you can choose between regular alkaline batteries and rechargeable NiMH. Select the NiMH setting to recharge your compatible batteries when the PR-D9W is plugged in.
The PR-D9W also features low power consumption, using 4 AA Alkaline batteries can play the radio for over 25 hours
Backup Capacitor Stores Memory Settings
A super capacitor in the PR-D9W stores your clock and memory presets in case of a power outage--so even if you've forgotten to put batteries in the radio, you can be prepared when the power goes out and not need to spend time resetting the clock and other presets. (The back-up capacitor can maintain the preset and clock for 5 minutes only.)
Built-In Headphone Stereo Amplifier
In addition to listening via the embedded speaker, the PR-D9W has a built-in headphone amplifier for reliable audio quality during private listening. A 5 + 5mW stereo amp and 16ohm flat response gives you extra clarity and fidelity when listening to your favorite radio stations.
