The Midland WR120B NOAA Weather Alert Radio can help you be prepared for all types of emergency threats including tornadoes, floods, severe thunderstorms, civil danger warnings and more. When a severe weather watch or warning is issued by the National Weather Service, the WR120 automatically alerts you, giving you the seconds you need to seek shelter. The WR120 is capable of receiving 7 National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association (NOAA) channels. It is also programmed with over 60 alerts like hurricanes and flash flooding. The SAME localized reception allows users to program the radio to sound an alert only when weather and other emergencies threaten a selected county or counties. The technology eliminates all alerts from other areas, so users won’t have to perk up their ears each time the alert sounds only to find the emergency is actually 100 miles up the highway. The radio is powered using the AC Adapter; however, use the 3 “AA” Alkaline batteries (not included) for an emergency power backup that keeps your radio working during power outages. This radio features a user selectable warning system that includes voice, display, or tone alert types. It also features: color coded indicators, alert override, silent programming, 90 dB siren, and a continuous backlighting option that keeps the LCD on. The WR120 is public alert certified and is backed by a one-year warranty. This product is recommended by the Department of Homeland Security for Emergency Preparedness.
Stay up to date on all the latest weather, hazard, and civil emergency information with the Public Alert Certified Midland WR-120EZ monitor.
Safety Made Simple
Capable of receiving seven National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association (NOAA) /Environment Canada channels each of which receives and displays emergency advisories on tornadoes, floods, severe thunderstorms, civil danger warnings, and more in three languages (English, Spanish, French), the WR-120EZ is a must for people who live in high-risk weather areas, such as the Southeast or Midwest. Plus, the seven NOAA channels offer coverage for roughly 93 percent of the U.S., so most people are well covered regardless of where they live.
The WR-120EZ features Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) reception. SAME allows users to program the radio to sound an alert only when weather and other emergencies threaten a selected county or counties. The technology eliminates all alerts from other areas, so users won’t have to perk up their ears each time the alert sounds only to find the emergency is actually 100 miles up the highway.
In addition, the WR-120EZ’s memory system accepts up to 25 counties, so you can monitor a broad swatch of counties at once or restrict it to one. Should an alert occur, users have a choice of three warning systems: a 90 dB siren, a voice alert, or a flashing LED light. The siren is the best option for people with larger homes or who aren’t always near the monitor, while the latter two options work well for smaller homes.
Additional features include a clock with an alarm and a snooze button, an emergency power backup that keeps your radio working during power outages or outdoor use, and external antenna and alert jacks. The WR-120EZ, which works with three AA batteries (not included), is backed by a one-year warranty, and is the 2011 replacement for the popular WR-100.
