Great idea for many folks.
I don't have an Iphone and sometimes we don't have cell service
when we are out in the boonies.
Time will tell if we can receive NOAH weather in those locations.....

Many states now have a service where you can get this, and other information, sent directly to your mail, cell phobne, alpha-pager, or any other text-based device. In NYS it's called NYAlert, and it does weather, traffic, or anything else that you want to subscribe to.

But to answer your qustion directly, Radio Shack has a good weather radio, programable to whatever area you are in, 110v with battery back-up for boondocking or power outages, for about $30. I have that in my unit. When I get home tonight, I can get you a model number...

That's probably a good solution Dan. We use our 2-way radios but the batteries don't last that long . . . .
