Cheap weather radio

The Midland WR-120 draws positive feedback as a good performer and a great value. It's no more expensive than many portable weather radios, but offers more features. The WR-120 is Public Alert-certified and SAME-enabled. One distinct disadvantage is that the WR-120 doesn't allow the disabling of unwanted alerts, but it costs about half the price of other well-regarded desktop weather radios.
