Sure your high-tech, app-infested mobile do-everything phone thingy will show an up-to-the-minute-radar map-in-motion and allow you to find out what the weather is going to be anywhere, a week from some Tuesday…but what really matters is if it’s going to rain or not during your ride today. This compact pocket radio easily tunes in your local weather forecasts on AM, FM and all seven NOAA Weather Alert frequencies. Reliable forecasts (and music, news, etc…) almost anywhere, with no expensive monthly fees or ‘dead zones’ common with cellular service providers. Features include a built-in speaker, headphones with 4' cord and 3.5mm jack, clock, removable belt clip, auto channel seek, 19 memory presets, battery power indicator, external plug-in antennae, 90 minute auto shut off option and PLL synthesized tuning system. Uses two AA batteries (not included). 4"×2.5"×.75".
