  •  Be sure the radio advertised has "S.A.M.E. (0+ / 0-)

    Encoding" with it. Each county in the US and Canada has a unique 6 digit code that's programmed into warnings, and when a warning is issued with that county's code, that's how the weather radio picks it up and goes off.

    It's similar to how the emergency alert system works on TV and radio. Not the same processes, but with the SAME encoding.
