You mean the thing that scares the living shit out of you in the middle of the day if the TV is turned up? Yeah, no thanks.

I kind of have nice memories of it as a kid, when we'd get afternoon thunderstorms and it would go off. I wouldn't if it was for something like a tornado.

I rarely hear it come on these days, but when I do it isn't four LOUD beeps, it's just three sets of three fast beeps.

If you think that's bad, check out what we have to put up with on Emergency Alerts in Australia. :Eeeeek:

I own a few different NOAA Weather radios, so in a sense... yes.
I actually just bought this model earlier this week to replace an old Radio Shack model I bought 20 some odd years ago when SAME codes were first being used.
Well, :Censored:
