We bought some of the early weather radios. Sounded like a good idea until the first time we were awakened a dozen times in one night for weather warnings in counties 80 to 100 miles away ..and now and then even for local weather warnings.
Faced with no sleep or missing a local thunderstorm or tornado warning, we opted for sleep.
Now, it is claimed at least( haven't heard the thing work yet) that warnings can be limited to one
county or perhaps in the case of large counties like Pennington in western So Dak to areas of the county. Anyway,
Below is the link that will get you to the SAME numbers to configure your weather radio.
The manual with the on-sale Midland radio..a genuine printed in 2003 in China listed a number of weather and other sites beside that above.
Now if any of the above work, you should have access to all kinds of government weather and geography information. Good luck and good weather.
