I was hoping this radio would satisfy my needs because of some of the features. Especially the four ways of providing power. That is a plus. However, in the end, reception was terrible. I own two other weather radios, an Oregon Scientific and a Midland. For comparison, and to be fair, I took each of the three radios to various parts of the house. The Midland and Oregon Scientific worked flawlessly. The First Alert...not so good. I'm aware that NOAA broadcasts on 7 different frequencies, so during my comparison test, I made sure each radio was on the clearest channel. First Alert failed. First Alert needs to contract with another supplier. I returned it the day after I received it.

    Has a great deal of static on weather band. Not sure how well it will work on alerts.
