    I was disappointed with the quality of the WR282B radio. Granted, I did not pay much for the radio but I think there are several improvements that could be made that would not add to the cost. I found the following shortcomings: 1) The markings molded inside the battery compartment show the +/- polarity reversed from what it should be. If I put the batteries in as shown, it would not work. That’ s inexcusable. 2) The tuning knob was difficult to grip and hard to turn. That made it tricky to tune in stations. 3) The volume knob was quite touchy – a small movement results in a large volume change, making it difficult to adjust, especially at low volume. The cumulative effect was that I decided to get my money back and look for something that is a little bit better.

    I was very disappointed with this radio. Due to the lack of FM antenna, you could tune in an FM station when holding the radio, but when you set it down and moved your hand away, the station would fade. After several attempts to find the proper position, you might finally find a good position to hear your FM station. However, after several minutes, the station would begin to fade. The radio would need the tuner adjusted again. I tried it on two different occassions at two different locations..... same results. It got returned to Walmart today. I would not purchase this item.

    Purchased this AM/FM Weather radio to follow the wife around as she works her gardens. The weather band will be great during those stormy times. The option of batteries powering this radio for mobility was a good selling point for us.
