 La Crosse Technology Super Sport

NOAA Weather Alert - AM/FM Portable Radio 


FROM



This is just the kind of product my grandparents would have LOVED years ago. Never was there a day they didn't listen to the news (on the radio or TV...or both) to find out what was going on with the weather. If there was a storm brewing they turned on their police scanner too. I haven't thought of that thing for years, but do you remember those? They were pretty popular once upon a time.

Holiday Contest and Sweeps recently had the pleasure to review
the La Crosse  NOAA Weather Band AM/FM Red Alert Super Sport
Radio from Wind & Weather. Their generosity in providing me with
this radio to review and then offer one to my readers in a giveaway,
will keep you and your family stay aware of severe weather all year long.
Not only can you find this unique radio at Wind & Weather's online
store, you can also find amazing deals on just about everything you
can use in your Home and Garden.  Being a Certified NOAA Severe
Weather Spotter, I can honestly say that Wind & Weather is the place to
 shop for all you weather equipment needs ranging from simple weather
products to the more advanced equipment.



This compact NOAA super sport weather radio has a blue LED back-lit screen that automatically turns to red and starts to flash during weather alerts in your area. It’s an effective warning system that’s hard to ignore. The handheld AM/FM radio features 7 different NOAA weather band channels to provide up-to-the-minute weather information that can help keep you safe at home or on the go. A made in the U.S.A. IC chip provides high-quality digital radio signals you can count on for excellent receiver performance. Has a built-in telescopic antenna and non-slip rubberized finish. A must for campers, hikers, boating enthusiasts, or anyone who wants to stay updated on the weather. Requires 3 AA alkaline batteries (not included).


When a Severe Weather Alert is issued by the National Weather Service, the blue screen will
change to a Red screen alerting you of approaching severe weather. Here is sample alert
from the National Weather Service, this is how your radio will sound when the alert is activated:

THIS IS ONLY A SAMPLE ALERT ONLY


A Built in .5 watt LED  flashlight is very bright and has high/low modes. This is a excellent light. Also, when a alert is issued the "red alert" will glow a bright red while the severe weather alert is broadcast.




The sides of the radio contain the following controls, which makes this radio highly unique

* Volume Controls
* LED Flashlight with the push of a button with On/Off High/Low Modes.
* Channel Control Button
* On/Off Control
* Headphone Jack
* Telescoping Antenna
* AM/FM Channel Selection Buttons
* Optional 6 volt a/c adapter
* Lanyard for easy carrying



This Radios compact size ( 2.87 in L x 5.15 in H x 1.29 in D) makes it
very easy to take with you wherever you may go.



The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is responsible for
transmitting the alerts for which this radio receives. Once a alert is broadcast this radio
goes into action by displaying the bright red screen and alert light on top, and then
broadcasting the alert. Here are a few of the alerts that will activate this radio.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch / Warning
Tornado Watch / Warning
Flash Flood Watch / Warning
Winter Storm Watch / Warning
Special Weather Statement
Heat Advisory / Warning
High Wind Watch /Warning



I defiantly give this radio a five star rating and would suggest that this radio belongs
in every household for their safety. A big thank you to Wind and Weather for allowing
me to review this radio and make my readers and my joining blogs readers aware that
Severe Weather is nothing to take for granite. Keeping you and your family safe gets a
littler bit easier with this La Crosse Radio by your side. Take a minute and visit Wind &
Weather and take advantage of their wide range of products and excellent prices today.

  3. I already have 2 weather radios that take batteries, electric or solar. You can put them in the sun and wind the knob if all the power has failed. Some lucky person will really enjoy this giveaway.

  9. We have a weather radio. The thing beeps at every little nothing, so I unplug it and my husband gets mad. My husband would probably like to have this one at work, so why not?
