Early Warning System
The Motorola MWR839 Weather Alert Radio provides early warnings to ensure you're prepared for whenever disaster strikes. With AM/FM weather radio as well as the ability to connect to external media devices, you'll be able to stay connected when weather strikes.
Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME)
Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) technology allows you to filter out emergency alerts outside of your county. When the SAME alert function is on, the radio will automatically play emergency weather/public alerts for your local area. There are 76 types of alerts,
including weather related alerts, civil emergencies, hazards and child abduction alerts. You can also disable the alerts that you prefer not to receive.
Multiple Connectivity Options
Tune in to AM/FM radio or NOAA weather channels. With 5 preset stations for AM and 5 preset stations for FM, you'll always be able to find your favorite stations quickly. If that's not enough, use the radios auxiliary input to connect your favorite music device and use the headphone connector if you don't want to disturb anyone.
RBDS (Radio Broadcasting Data System)
The RBDS (Radio Broadcasting Data System) allows the clock to sync up with radio stations that share the RBDS feature. RBDS provides you with a range of informational features including clock time, date, names of radio programs (including song titles) and radio text messages.
Alternate Power Source
When disaster strikes and electricity is out, stay informed using an alternate power source. The radio can be powered by 4 AA batteries, which act as a convenient and essential backup power source.
Not to worry, should your radio be in either standby or AM/FM mode, the Alert Override feature automatically switches to emergency alert broadcasts - keeping you informed of any impending danger.
Alert Message Storage
No need to wonder what happened while you were away from the radio. The MWR839 Weather Alert Radio features Alert Message Storage, which stores up to 20 emergency alerts for you to review.
The MWR839 Weather Alert Radio gives you the choice to be awakened either by your favorite AM/FM radio station or by a buzzer alarm. There are two individual alarm settings for your convenience and a snooze button when you are not quite ready to start your day.
