  • Summary: This radio is everything I wanted; compact, reliable, and not too many bells and whistles. We leave it plugged in and on alarm mode, and it's sounded once...good to know when bad weather's nearby.

better than expected

BTfromA, Amazon

  • Summary: After reading the reviews, I thought this radio would be " good enough" for my purpose of listening to El Rushbo next to the pool. The radio has very clear sound, plenty of volume and great reception! It is replacing a much more expensive brand which never worked as well as this one. The speaker is crystal clear and the stations do not "wander". The weather monitor is easily operated and an added plus.

Poor Investment

Brett V Kensington, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: This radio worked for me for about three months. After that the channel switch failed and I can no longer get emergency alerts and can barely pick up the weather broadcasts. Save your money and do not purchase it.

Save your money

P.J. Lawton "Author, Reviewer", Amazon
16 May 2012
  • Summary: Ordered this item thinking since it was First Alert that it would be good. I wanted a radio with weather. No so. Will not pick up any weather station on any band. Complete waste of time and money. Would return it but I threw the box away before I checked it. Yeah, I know, not very smart. That won't happen again. I went to Walmart and bought a Midland for less money. Do yourself a favor and get a Midland.

Had ours for 3 years in Tornado Alley

J. Day, Amazon
15 April 2012
  • Summary: We received this radio for free as a local news station was giving them away. We have had it for about 3 years. It works ok but is not great. The reception is mediocre at best even with the antenna all the way up. When we are in our in-ground storm shelter we don't get reception at all unless it is sitting on the steps just below the door and someone is standing with their hand on the antenna.
