I purchased a WR 120 for Mom after a real Tornado WARNING occurred. I have purchased and programmed several of these in the past.
This one Had left out key info regarding the TORNADO WARNING. Namely, It's not listed as a possible ALERT on the list.
This radio let's you pick and choose alerts from a list of about 160. Living in Wisconsin, I'm not really worried about avalanches ! So I set that one to OFF. But I couldn't find the Tornado Warning alert to make sure it was turned ON.
I went to two other stores with my own batteries and tried the same units with the same result.
After complaining to the store Co Mng. about Walmart selling defective weather radios and that they could cost some one their life in a storm, I went home to contact the manufacturer Midland. It was the weekend so naturally they were not open.
I sent multiple E-mails and finally after no response called. Their Rep stated that the TORNADO WARNING Alert was not listed because that way nobody could turn it OFF by mistake. The alert is ALWAYS ON...
I told them and suggested that it would be very helpful to mention this fact in the booklet or separate sheet of paper..
Other than that they are great little safety radios.
