Voted 4/5

I use this on short hikes, weekend trips, and at the crags, especially locally in spring and fall during tornado season. Not much use in the summer Rockies because you don't need a weather radio to predict normal mountain storms. The compass is useless, but the temperature gauge works very well. This thing has picked up weather reports from pretty far back in the woods. I don't take it on long climbing expeditions because I like to go light, but for other trips, I don't leave home without it. Cons: At times it can have a lot of static if not held just right.

This model is still around, but there are newer versions on the net or check out www.oregonscientfic.com.
