You can obtain FIPS codes for your area at the NWS website: or call the NWS toll-free at 1-888-NWR-SAME or contact your local RadioShack store Preprogrammed with all US counties Receives all NOAA channels Provides audible alerts When an alert is in effect, the corresponding alert indicator color flashes for 60 seconds and then lights for the duration the alert is in effect (red means "warning," amber means "watch," and yellow means "advisory") Antenna performance is a function of local conditions-transmission signals can be stronger in some directions than others and also may be affected by nearby structures or geographic features (such as mountains, trees, or bodies of water), seasonal environmental conditions (such as ice or heavy rain) Runs on the included AC adapter or 3 AA batteries (not included)

It was what I expected
Having the Radio Shack weather radio has given us a sense of security. It will wake you up if their is severe weather in the area.

Works well, very inexpensive
I got tired of my old weather alert radio waking me up at night just to hear alerts from half way across the state, so I bought this radio because it has SAME. SAME allows me to select alerts for my home county only. Set up was easy and only took about 5 minutes. This radio lacks some of the features of higher end weather alert radios, but its not bad for the least expensive alert radio available.

Fantastic for the safety and easy use!
I really put this item to use the very first day of use. Here in Oklahoma I live in Tornado alley and it has really kept not only myself but the safety of others in my apartment complex. This item is very well and a great bargain for the money. I will be ordering more in the near future as gifts for others safety. The only flaw I dislike about the item is that there is no on and off switch. I pressed exit and it turned off and so the screen went off, however drained the batteries, other than that this item if fantastic in quality and I highly recommend this item for your weather alerts and safety. Get the live action as it happens and protect your family. Sincerely; Kevin Harsley Norman, Oklahoma

is this a radio also or just for weather?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is for weather only.
when you push the weather/snooze button do you hear the localized NOAA weather report?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you do.
Is there any kind of guarantee?
Dudgepm C on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All orders from Dailysale are covered by a 30 day return policy.
Can i check the forecast anytime or do you have to wait for a weather alert?
R S on Jul 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The SAME Weather Radio operates on seven frequencies, with different frequencies used in different areas. When a situation calls for a weather or civil alert, a digital signal is sent on all transmitters covering that area.

Examples of situations calling for a weather alert include winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods Examples of situations calling for a civil alert include child abductions, chemical hazards (such as caused by a chemical spill), industrial fires, and evacuations.

Weather radios are designed to monitor the National Weather Radio service broadcast on the frequency that they are tuned to and respond to an alert signal by sounding an alert and/or turning on to play the alert message. Radios with the SAME (Specific-Area Message Encoding) feature allow you to set the radio to only activate when an alert contains a SAME code you have programmed into the radio.
