Review 1 for WeatherX WR282B AM/FM Weatherband Radio

A piece of junk

After not more than 100 hours of playing, this radio just stopped working. It is a good move that it is warrantied for only 90 days, because that is all it will last even with very infrequent use.

Purchased this AM/FM Weather radio to follow the wife around as she works her gardens. The weather band will be great during those stormy times. The option of batteries powering this radio for mobility was a good selling point for us.

Review 3 for WeatherX WR282B AM/FM Weatherband Radio

poor quality

I was disappointed with the quality of the WR282B radio. Granted, I did not pay much for the radio but I think there are several improvements that could be made that would not add to the cost. I found the following shortcomings:
1) The markings molded inside the battery compartment show the +/- polarity reversed from what it should be. If I put the batteries in as shown, it would not work. That’ s inexcusable.
2) The tuning knob was difficult to grip and hard to turn. That made it tricky to tune in stations.
3) The volume knob was quite touchy – a small movement results in a large volume change, making it difficult to adjust, especially at low volume.
The cumulative effect was that I decided to get my money back and look for something that is a little bit better.

Call it the wonderer...

I was very disappointed with this radio. Due to the lack of FM antenna, you could tune in an FM station when holding the radio, but when you set it down and moved your hand away, the station would fade. After several attempts to find the proper position, you might finally find a good position to hear your FM station. However, after several minutes, the station would begin to fade. The radio would need the tuner adjusted again. I tried it on two different occassions at two different locations..... same results. It got returned to Walmart today. I would not purchase this item.

Review 5 for WeatherX WR282B AM/FM Weatherband Radio

Do NOT buy this radio!

This radio's sound quality is absolutely awful. The first transistor radios produced in the 1950's probably had a better sound than this radio. I'd rather hear the sound of finger nails screeching on a chalk board than the sound from this radio. Also, the knob to tune the radio is poorly designed making it difficult to tune this radio to a specific station. The tiny frequency tuner scale in only about 2-3/8" wide. It seems to have an overall poor ability to receive radio signals from even the closest radio stations. If you still want to buy this radio, use the power cord for the power source first before you waste money on new batteries for it. Also, be sure to keep the box so that you can return it and get your money back.
