Get one with a weather channel/alert.

Check a thrift shop maybe it might be a better radio then you can buy new today I'd look into a add on antenna to help with the reception issues!


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I use my Milwaukee m-18 all the time, it a pretty good portable radio if you have the batteries already. You might need to rig an antenna to connect to it in a limited reception area.

I have a Grundig radio here at my camp, it has all the features your asking about. Itís working great after 10 years or more. I catch a lot of Canadian shortwave here with it as well.

Yep..So thanks..those look to be top end radios..I have a question though..none of the models has a "Weather" band...Does the short wave portion of the radio give 'Weather" or do you not get a weather band at all...

I just bought this one:

Panasonic AM/FM Radio

I keep it in my wood shop and put an older one down in my fur shed.

For the price I am pleased with it. t gets much better AM reception than my old one and doesn't make that annoying noise when really cold like most older radios do.

I bought an expensive AM/FM for camp that cost three times as much because it was supposed to get really great AM reception. this one is better.


Eh...wot?
