Indadaquate

  • Excerpt: I considered purchasing a "through the window" antenna. We like most people have double pane windows, and reviews suggested I forget as they found "static" was pronounced with such antennas. AM reception is poor. FM is marginal. Was this review helpful?
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: We are in a weak reception area. The built in antenna is weak. The alert system does not function do to reception issues.

  • Excerpt: Radio reception is poor. Even though there have been several weather watches and warnings issued in my area, the alert has not sounded one time. If I had saved the box, I would return it. Was this review helpful?

  • Summary: Just retired from the fire dept and with no pager anymore to notify us of bad weather, this is a great replacement. Works great.

Not practical in power outages

Shaunagain, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: Without power and in the dark, having controls that do no offer back-lighting is a problem. You can't see which control to use or what the settings are. So long as you have a separate flashlight, you can use the unit. Radio sensitivity is poor, much poorer than I'm used to on any other radio I've used. I would not recommend this and wish I'd picked a different unit.

Operation

EdC, Amazon

  • Summary: All the batteries are installed. The unit radio does not work on batteries. You have to crank it to use the radio. That is not a bad thing but I would think the radio should work with the batteries and not just the crank.

Weak reception, poor battery life, terrible support

Jay, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the ER102 almost two years ago. It sits on my office desk and stays plugged in. I use it to listen to the radio while working and it also serves as a weather radio for the office during severe weather. The reception on this radio is poor on AM and FM, however the weather band seems to come in fairly clear. The ER102 has an internal rechargeable battery pack that comes with the unit.
