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 to give you an idea of how the radio will sound when the alert is activated. This is what you will hear (similar to this), you just won’t see the images displayed in this video.

 

When a alert is issued the “red alert” will glow a bright red while the severe weather alert is broadcasted.

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
