  • I need a decent weather radio!

    Nothing too elaborate, just one that has decent signal pickup. Here, my Satellite TV goes down at the first hit of a storm, I have no way of knowing of any Tornado watches or warnings. Would a hand held police band radio do the job? I can install an external antenna if this would help with signal strength. I've tired Wal-Mart and Radio Shack junkers, they won't receive a signal in the clear from the nearest alert station which is 25 miles south of me.

    The real problem with the world are laws preventing culling.
