Oregon Scientific Desktop Emergency Radio Weather Station - Stay Informed and Prepared


Given the recent and ongoing hurricane season, and the amazing number of tornados this past year in the US, needing an emergency radio is like having running water. Just get one. We like the new weather radio from Oregon Scientific, as the WR606 can continuously monitor emergency broadcasts related to weather or civil incidents in your area. It also features SAME alert programming capabilities, and you can specify which counties you want to hear information for, and be alerted when severe weather or other alerts occur in up to 9 different local counties. You’ll also get temperature, humidity, weather forecast and barometric pressure data, each illuminated by a LED backlight with an included AC adapter.
