Need Advice For Weather Alert Radio: S.A.M.E. WX RADIO TO BUY??

Post by Crackles McFarl » Sun, 05 Aug 2007 07:56:01

What I need is the following, if possible.

1. Easily programmable. No hard to understand ways to add take away
counties.
2.  s.a.m.e. radio, noaa approved
3. Hand held, portable [prefer rechargeable but not necessary ]
4. Would like to stay in $50-$99 range if possible.
5. Would like to only buy from 'well-known' companies and directly
from their website not some third-party like amazon.com.
6. Also would need one that is SUPER LOUD when an alarm is
transmitted.

Can one of you help me find a radio like this?
Or at least one that is CLOSE?

Thank you very much,

1. I've 'gotten' about 4 replies, 2 were for the same radio the other
2 were radios not being made right now.

2. I know of no rule on posting.

Carry on, do as you wish Sir..[tipping cap to you like a baseball

I think I replied to each of those several times since we kept
debating and they just wouldn't tell me an answer.

Quote:>>2. I know of no rule on posting.

If I get ignored for a SINCERE/NON-TROLLING request for help that is
just plain sad. So many post on usenet as trolls and here I am trying
to get some help and I am lumped into their pile.

I'll ask some related questions a few more times. If the results are
as they have been to date I'll just unsubscribe. What is the point.

If the 3 newsgroups about this topic can't have some ***s to provide
an answer then I am relegated to FORUMS which is better for this
problem I assume.

Anyway, thanks for at least being HONEST ;-)
