In addition to (or in lieu of) get a good weather app for your smart phone. The weather radio is great but only when you're around to hear it.

Thanks for all the feedback. The Midland WR-120B looks like it fits the bill for what I would need and is pretty affordable. Sears has them for $30.50 each. 1 for the house and 1 for the camper. That's one for the camper once Jayco finishes it.....

I did look and I'm using the Midland WR-100. You can get it at Amazon for $44 and Walmart for $30.

Best buy we ever did.

I use these two-way Motorola Radios. They have all the US NOAA and Canadian weather bands, with alerts.

Great radios too...Lot's of uses while RV'ing. Fits in your pocket.

We purchased a Midland WR-100. Pretty standard SAME programmable weather radio. We find that it gets left at home more than taken in the camper the last few years.

That's why my wife, my son, my daughter and myself are all hams.
We get into areas where there is no cell service at all but can hit 4 different repeaters and use auto patch if we need to make a phone call.

Personally, I hate cell phones. No skill involved in using one.

We use these radios as well.

Great for shopping malls.. DW can shop at one end and I can head to the food court to check the scenery.

Great for backing into tight spots and connecting the hitch. I back up and the wife tells me where to go...

We have a (name withheld due to memory loss) small weather/am/fm radio that goes with us on every camping trip. Its as basic as you can get, and has 7 pre-selected weather channels that are 'empty'...you just click from one channel to the next until it picks up a signal and you leave it there. As simple as it may be, its never failed to pick up a weather station broadcast.
