- Oh yes. It is loud. Too loud for my liking. At the same time, I can barely hear it from the other end of the house, so loud might be a good thing.by MyWalmartNickname8/19/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- doubletrouble1225, The alert is very loud if the volume is all the way up. It scares my wife to death every time it goes off during the night. JZinnby JZinn7/9/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- If you can get it to respond to the alert signal it will wake the dead. I read a comment that if the radio is programmed for specific county codes (S.A.M.E.) the radio won't respond. I had my radio set to all specific county codes for my local transmitter and the radio has yet to activate. I now have it set for ANY county to see if it works. There are two jacks on the radio that are not explained in the instructions or on the otherwise excellent videos on YouTube. One jack I assume is for connection to an alert device for someone who is hearing impaired, but no details. I will leave a more detailed review as soon as I verify the alert function. As of yet, I would not entrust my life to this radio.by Flarpswitch7/9/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?

- no. Be sure to get an external antenna from radio shack for $50.00 This radio is good but won't pick up stations beyond 5 miles.by Walrusmt12/18/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
Q. how do you get it to work?? I've yet to hear any warnings or get any warnings, can't seem to find website for these people either.
- Deb, You must go to the settings on the device and manually program your county's S.A.M.E. code into the device. You can look up your county's code here: http://nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm Hope this helps! JZinnby JZinn7/9/2014Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
