NOAA Alerts - Part 2

Looks like several folks liked the idea of a $8 NOAA Alert Radio, but Nate points out a nifty alternative...

Radio Shack All Hazards Weather Alert Clock Radio With Skywarn
"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."
