The WR-10 Weather Max gives you two products in one. You have a combination AM/FM broadcast radio. You also have a 24-hour a day National Weather Service monitor. A complete information system in the palm of your hands. The Weather Max has a full tone alert signaling system built in. When the National Weather Service issues an emergency report, they transmit a special tone. This tone is picked up by your WR-10 to provide you instant emergency weather information. Your WR-10 will advise you of special weather warnings even if you are listening to standard AM or FM broadcasts.
The WR-10 has an emergency battery backup system for use if you lose power. It will provide up to six hours of operation if power fails. It also allows the WR-10 to be used as a temporary portable to take on trips, picnics to the beach, etc. The WR-10 provides a new concept in high performance Weather Monitors combined with the information and entertainment of an AM-FM radio.
