Holiday Contest and Sweeps recently had the pleasure to review the La Crosse NOAA Weather Band AM/FM Red Alert Super Sport Radio from Wind and Weather. Their generosity in providing me with this radio to review and then offer one to my readers in a giveaway, will keep you and your family stay aware of severe weather all year long.

Being a Certified NOAA Severe Weather Spotter, I can honestly say that Wind and Weather is the place to shop for all your weather equipment needs ranging from simple weather products to the more advanced equipment.
This compact NOAA super sport weather radio has a blue LED back-lit screen that automatically turns to red and starts to flash during weather alerts in your area. It’s an effective warning system that’s hard to ignore.
The handheld AM/FM radio features seven different NOAA weather band channels to provide up-to-the-minute weather information that can help keep you safe at home, or on the go. A made in the U.S.A. IC chip provides high-quality digital radio signals you can count on for excellent receiver performance. It has a built-in telescopic antenna and non-slip rubberized finish. It's a must for campers, hikers, boating enthusiasts, or anyone who wants to stay updated on the weather. It requires three AA alkaline batteries (not included).
When a Severe Weather Alert is issued by the National Weather Service, the blue screen will change to a Red screen alerting you of approaching severe weather. Here is sample alert from the National Weather Service, this is how your radio will sound when the alert is activated.
