NOAA Alerts

Speaking of NOAA alerts, this RadioShack SAME Weather Radio for $7.99 was getting a lot of praise on the 470 repeater the other day.

  1. For less than $30, you can get a radio that does:

    - NOAA (with Specific Area Message Encoding, the display will alert and show the text even if the radio is in standby).
    - Your regular analog Broadcast AM/FM (Stereo, it has 2 speakers)
    - "Skywarn band" (Which is essentially 2m and 440).
    - AUX input.
    - Alarm clock (2 separated alarms can be set).

    It has a BNC female connector like most scanners have, so you can plug it into an external antenna as well.

    I use it some times when I want to monitor a nearby repeater.
