The new Midland WR-300 digital, all-hazard alert radio features the latest SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology including new AMBER alerts. With regular weather alert radios you can be awakened all night by alerts from areas too far away to effect you. Now if the alert sounds you know it is for your area. This model can automatically alert you by specific county or area. Up to 30 areas may be programmed. False alarms are eliminated. This model receives all seven weather channels.
The three-line LCD displays 48 different watches or warnings. The display is backlit (backlight is switchable). Three LED lights indicate at a glance the alert status (statement, watch or warning). The WR-300 has its own telescopic antenna plus has an external antenna jack (RCA phono). There is also an accessory jack (3.5mm mini) for keying optional external alert devices such as strobe lights or pillow vibrators. There is even an Audio Output jack for headphones or to feed an external audio amplifier.
The built in digital AM/FM radio automatically switches to incoming alerts. The alert siren volume is adjustable. This device also serves as a digital clock (12 hours format).
Install four alkaline AA cells (not supplied) to ensure use during power outages. Size is 7.5x1.75x5.25 inches (190x45x135mm). The WR-300 comes with 120 VAC power supply or it will operate from 10-12 VDC. One year limited warranty. Click here for specifications.
