I travel full time and am on my second weather radio, with lots of frustrations. The first one was obviously a cheapo and the knobs broke within 3 months. The second one, a Midland 120ez, is supposed to be a good one but I haven’t gotten any signals in over 6 months. The last two places Iv’e been in Oklahoma had severe thunderstorms and hail and the radio sat silently the whole time. It’s set on “any” for location.
I really want one that has a very strong signal no matter where I’m camped. Don’t care about other bells and whistles like hand-cranking, etc. I would like to keep it plugged in to an outlet or usb full time (except when driving) as I almost 100% of the time have electrical where I’m parked. I just want to be able to pick up AM radio signals and NOAA weather updates no matter where I am.
When I was in the south, I could push the button and get a looping weather report any time of day or night. Now, I’m in Oklahoma and nothing!
What do you use? What do you like/dislike about your model?
