  •  Hmm. I'll check the booklet & get back to you. (0+ / 0-)

    That's not been my mode of concern, since most alerts that worry me are tornado/severe thunderstorm warnings and are short-lived.  But I don't get away from the house much, so you might well need more.

    I'll see if my models can give you periodic alarms as you suggest.  Be back shortly.

    •  No, the point is that it shouldn't keep giving (0+ / 0-)

      alarms every 5-10 minutes like the older and purely analog radios did.  Otherwise you will just end up turning it off because you need to get some sleep and if you didn't it would go off all night until every watch/warning has expired.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

        If I read you right, then, this critter should work well for your needs.  You'll learn soon enough which warnings are "too helpful" and which are essential, and you can program it to care for what you care about.

        The area-specific and alert-specific programmability are priceless, though.  Just my personal recommendation.

        Good luck!
