The Sangean AM/FM Digital Pocket Radio/Tuner with NOAA Weather/Emergency Alert is a small, pocket sized portable radio. The new NOAA Weather Alert Emergency Channel sounds a very loud audible tone when an extreme weather condition is imminent and/or a police emergency or child abduction has occurred or any type of public awareness becomes critical. Even with your radio off or you are listening to another station, the weather alert monitor continues to monitor the NOAA channels should an emergency arise.
To conserve battery life, the DT- 400W provides an option to select the time you would like the NOAA alert to be active and a small LED alert flashes to remind you that the alert is on. In addition to emergencies, the 7 NOAA channels provide up-to-date general weather information useful if you're planning a trip or just a picnic for the weekend. The large backlit LCD display clearly displays the time, station, battery life indication, alert indication and all other pertinent information.
Sensitivity and selectivity are remarkable and comparable to many of the better standalone AM/FM table top radios. Advanced PLL Synthesized Digital Receiver provides drift-free AM/FM reception. Deep Bass Boost adds to your stereo musical listening pleasure and 19 random preset selections lets you mix AM/FM stations with immediate access through the "My Favorites" button. Other features include Lock Switch to prevent accidental set-up changes, optional 90 minute auto shutoff, built-in speaker, auto station seek and a removable belt clip.
One reason why the Sangean DT-400W is popular is because of its Easy to use

Bought the yellow one to replace my dt 300, many years old, paint even worn off. Use it for biking & occasional rides on my road king. It's larger but still stuffs in your bikin' shorts. Outstanding reception! Way better than my old one. My rides are out in the northwoods, where reception is marginal. Recommend it. The little $30 Sony my son bought me for Xmas is junk compared to this one.
Small, good sound, presets and digital tuning big plus. Decent speaker for playing without headphones.
The duracell batteries last a long time.Has an amazing sound. Auto shut is great. Always has the weather on if you need it. Can go to sleep listening to a radio program and automatically shuts off.Its tough and durable. You get what you pay for and this is worth having in my opinion. I have two of them. Keep one at my cabin in the woods and one at my regular home.
Just love the radio! I'm a amateur radio operator "WR2H" and I listen to radios all the time. I will tell you this is a keeper. Has great sensitivity for weak stations and you can program 20 stations. Can't wait to go for a run with this guy!!
