Midland WR-120 Reviews

Perfect weather radio for me

By Matt

The Midland WR 120 weather radio is perfect for my needs. The radio was easy to setup. I set it up to receive warnings for my county and the county west of me. I did this to minimize the number of warnings not for my immediate area. You can also set the types of warnings you wish to hear about and the choices are numerous. The alarm volume can be set so there is no doubt it will be heard probably anywhere in your house. I am very satisfied with this weather radio.

I purchased this in the Fall 2020 wanted an emergency weather radio to have at the house. I really love the features on this unit. It will give an alarm or visual warning if the weather alerts change. Nice and loud and very easy to see changes in storm warnings. A must have device for all homes. Yes, one can get alerts with cell phone, but this device is perfect to have located in central area of the house like the kitchen where people have a tendency to walk through often, great way to stay ahead of the weather. Unit was received within less than 24hrs of ordering from BH Photo and Video. Very happy with service and purchase.

I have purchased three of these over the years for myself and others. There have been no problems with any of them. In my opinion these are very good units for the price.

The instructions were a bit confusing at first, but once I figured it out the set up went easily. I especially like that it automatically entered not just my county but also the nearby ones when I entered multiple at the location set up. Nice loud tone can be heard all thru the house and very clear on the info channel. The size is just right and fits nicely on the table next to my chair. great Radio.

The emergency alert system from the local weather band radio station worked well during the recent flash flooding from the hurricane. This thing automatically goes on for the alerts it can be set to. It's a backup for cell phone apps that are not always heard, especially during sleep hours. The radio is worth the money.

We have followed instructions but can not get it set. Both me and my husband have tried. I guess I will have to find some one that is smarter than us.

question

what is cloning port ?
Asked by: Anonymous
A cloning port for a NOAA weather radio appears to be a port for cloning like radios with like information, which is usually done in large quantities. Cloning duplicates the contents of Radio 1 (master radio) into Radio 2 (slave radio). However, tuning and alignment information are not affected by cloning. Cloning is done with ham radios also.Enter an answer to this question.

Are the time and date set automatically?

No, you have to go into the menu and set the time, the date is not an option on this radio. Also if you unplug the radio, you will have to reset the time.
