For those who don't need advanced features, reviewers recommend the Midland WR-120. It's Public Alert-certified and SAME-enabled, and most owners find it very reliable. It lacks selectable alerts, but at about half the price of other top-rated weather radios, owners consider it an excellent value.
- Strong features and performance for the price
- User can select to hear only alerts that apply to their location
- User can't select certain types of alerts (such as thunderstorm warnings) to ignore
