This is the place to talk about weather, such as services, forecasts, emergencies, the science of meteorology... stuff like that.

NOAA Weather Radio

Post by PugetSoundStormWatch » Sun Dec 01, 2013 5:05 pm

Does anyone on here own a NOAA Weather Radio? Or do you have a collection of NOAA Weather Radios? If so, what radios do you have in your collection?

In my collection I have:

-Midland WR-100
-Midland WR-120EZ
-Eton Zoneguard
-RadioShack 12-382
-RadioShack 12-522
-RadioShack 12-093

More radios may be added to my collection during Christmas, this list will be updated once I purchase new radios.

I do have a weather radio. It's a cheapo Oregon Scientific All-Hazards radio.

As for collections, I don't have (or intend to have) a weather radio collection. Although, now it seems like a good hobby. :D

I have a really old Realistic cube-shaped radio with a single button on top, two knobs on the bottom, and an antenna. The knobs select the channel and volume and the button turns it on/off.

I have a CB radio that came out of my dad's van when he bought it. I think it tunes to NOAA bands when it turns on.

Update to my collection, I purchased the Capello CR2W at my local target last Friday, that now makes seven radios in my collection.

I had an old Midland WR-100 that stopped working, and I haven't bothered to get a new one since. It's not all that much of an issue where I live because my phone automatically alerts me to any severe weather in my area, which doesn't happen all that often anyway. I plan to get one when I move to Stillwater for college, because Oklahoma's smack in the middle of Tornado Alley, but the campus has tornado sirens, so I don't know.

Yeah, but those sirens are designed to be OUTDOOR warning system, so it wouldn't be bad to get a weather radio for your house.

I'd imagine you'd be able to hear outdoor sirens throughout the entire campus. Like I said, I'll probably have a weather radio in my dorm, but the campus is small enough that a single siren could probably cover the entire campus.

Ah! I did not know you lived on a college campus. I guess then you would be able to hear them.
