Expanding its range of GMRS radios, Cobra Electronics introduces two powerful two-way radios. The affordable CXT135 and CXT235 feature advanced NOAA Weather Radio (NWR). The CXT235 also has All Hazards Alert, providing audible alerts.
The new NWR feature allows listening to the NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards broadcasting of continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service nationwide network of transmitters. NWR relays official weather service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The CXT135 is the most economical weather radio on the market. It has a range of up to 16 miles, Power Saver circuitry for extended battery life, Call Alert and rechargeable NiMH batteries.
The powerful CXT235 includes all the features of the CXT135, plus a larger range of up to 20 miles. It also features NOAA All Hazards Alerts, which provide loud audible tones in the event of a weather alert or other emergency. The NOAA Alert feature activates an automatic alarm on the radio if NOAA sends a tone alert with the warning. The tone will activate an alarm on the CXT235, even if the audio volume is turned down. This is especially useful for warnings which occur at night when most people are sleeping.
The 2012 two-way radio lineup also includes the CXT425, CXR725, CXR825 and CXR925 models. They also feature maximum performance and a range of up to 35 miles, advanced NOAA weather and emergency radio capabilities, rechargeable high-performance LiON batteries and desktop chargers and Cobra’s Rewind-Say-Again digital voice recorder.
Cobra Electronics’ CXT135 has a MSRP of $49.95, while the CXT235 is listed at $59.95. They will be available in March.
