Expedition Weather Radio
In emergency situations, up to the minute information is crucial for protecting yourself and your family. This new weather radio from Oregon Scientific broadcasts local weather forecasts, weather related travel conditions and warnings about impending severe weather. The radio also receives broadcasts from the US Emergency Alert System, which provides national and local information regarding public health and safety issues, such as earthquakes, toxic chemical spills, radiation emergencies, explosions and fires. The radio features automatic alert activations using SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology. This allows you to enter a specific county or area within your county to receive only the alerts that apply to your immediate area via an audible or visual alarm. It digitally scans all seven NOAA weather radio channels, and has a user selectable 12 or 24 hour clock with alarm and eight minute snooze. Uses 3 AAA batteries (not included).
