Review: WeatherTime NOAA Weather Alert Radios with SAME Technology
Honeywell was generous enough to send us both the PCR507W and RN507W NOAA alert weather radios to test. Both feature the NOAA weather alert radio functionality, and both have an atomically set clock. We found both models really easy to use, but in the end liked having the ability to project the time and clock in our bedroom. Since you can use the weather radio plugged in or on battery power, both models can replace your radio in the garage, camp, or in the kitchen with ease. We actually brought the non-projection model with us bass fishing and got a weather alert concerning thunderstorms that made the day a little less wet.
We really like the ability to have it scan the weather band, and then with the touch of a button we can listen to the forecast anytime we want. The size of both models is also dead on, and we didn't find carrying them around or having them in any of the locations we tested - kitchen, boat, and bedroom for them to be too large or too small.
We also liked the feature of what weather alerts we want to be alerted to. You can easily cycle through various alert types and turn them on and off.
Key features of both models include:
- Automatically sets to US Atomic clock
- Day displays in English, Spanish and French
- 12 hour time format
- Light sensor detects low light conditions and lights up LCD display
- NOAA with SAME technology
- Public Alert Certified device
- Indoor temperature display
- User-selectable C° or F°
- FM Radio
- Enhanced blue backlight
- AC/DC adapter included
- Batteries not included:6 AA (main unit)
