READER P.G. SCHRAN WRITES: “I’m thinking of getting the family a weather radio as a Christmas present… I know you have the Midland WR300 – are you still happy with it? I worry about reliability for something so important…. Any info from you or your readers would be much appreciated!” Mine still works perfectly — and it got quite a workout during the big storms last spring.

UPDATE: Reader Brian Hoskins writes: “The Sangean 100 table top weather radio is superior to the Midland. I have both.”
