EASY SETUP
Very easy to set up, just plug it in and turn it on. It will tell you how the reception is OK or Not. Give it 10 minutes after turning it on to stablize the reception. Do not have your Cell phone turned on nearby. It will interfear with reception. Much much easier than our old weather set-up.

Great disappointment
Once I bought this, I couldn't wait for a storm so I could see it work. Well I got my storm - even a tornado warning and all I saw was the alert saying NO THREATS. There was no recognition of the lightning (which struck in my yard), nor recognition of the storm, and no recognition of the tornado threat. I had it sitting at the window to be sure there was no interference. I am greatly disappointed.

Cool device that detects Sferics

This device works great. It detects sferics (electrical disturbances) in the upper atmosphere that are generated by severe storms. Just after setting it up we had a severe storm system blow through. The device triggered just before a tornado warning occurred over the weather radio network.

Works well.

We have not had an actual tornado yet, but we have had a number of storms come through since we bought the Tornado Alert, and it did alert of lightening and other possible dangers. It seems to do exactly what it is supposed to do! Interesting technology!

It really works

I bought three, one for my bonus daughter who lives in a trailer in a high tornado alley. One for the 40 acres we purchased by the lake that also has tornado's in Oklahoma. One for our home because I have no storm shelter and I have a cable network that goes out every time the wind blows. So we are very please with it, we had it at the lake on our land where were building a house and huge storms came up and we were able to get into shelter before the down pour, wind and lightening which hit several trees around us.

Better than What I expected

I bought this just before the last Severe Storm and it performed exactly as described. I would recommend this to anyone concerned about Tornadoes. My very excellent All Weather Alert Radio blasted me out of my bed when rain drops fell 50 miles away. It was such a nuisance I took the battery out of it. Will use it AFTER a REAL storm hits for information.
