Alarm did not work properly

By Greg

from Largo, Florida



    • Unreliable

    Best Uses

      Comments about Acu-Rite 08500 My Backyard Weather Alert Radio:

      Alarm only worked when actually listening to the broadcast, would not work in the standby mode, which it's suppose to do. Thank God I had another older different weather radio so I knew when the alarm was sounding on the other, and not on this one. Very disappointing.

        Comments about Acu-Rite 08500 My Backyard Weather Alert Radio:

        I enjoy using this product because of it's simplicity of setup and accurate forcasting.

        I've had other weather alert radios in the past which were difficult to program.
