One other side of this that no one has pointed out is how vital this radio can be AFTER a disaster event. It great as a warning device, but its absolutely a godsend where you have no power, no cell phones, no regular phones, and no other means of getting news. After a major storm, tornado, hurricane, or any other disaster, your fiberglass egg may be serving more than just a occasional camping trailer, you may be living in it. And consider that until normal lines of communication can be restored, a solar
& hand cranked radio may be your only link to the outside world.
I don't know if this particular model has it, but some hand cranked radios can also recharge cellphones and laptops.
Of course it's only to recieve news... I'd naturally suggest a CB or Ham Radio as another investment in communication security. Two-way comm is the way to go, anything that'll let someone know that you are there.
