This versatile system from Oregon Scientific combines a weather station that shows you local conditions at a glance and a portable Public Alert radio that keeps you up to date when weather hazards and other emergencies threaten.

Receive weather alerts on the go
The WRB308's handheld Public Alert radio has a range of 50 miles and receives all National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports, as well as those from the U.S. Emergency All Hazards and Emergency Alert System (EAS). When there's an alert in your area, it displays a visual warning signal and sounds an audible alarm. You can program the radio to receive alerts for up to nine different locations, so you can keep track of conditions at your home, vacation house, office, and more.

Indoor/outdoor weather station
The WRB308's weather station has a built-in sensor and comes with a remote outdoor sensor that can be placed up to 98 feet away. The station's large, easy-to-read LCD displays indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, and even provides a 12-24 hour weather forecast. A built-in cradle keeps your handheld Public Alert radio charged and ready.

Self-setting clock
The weather station's built-in clock automatically corrects itself with radio signals broadcast by the U.S. Atomic Clock, for the most accurate time possible. The clock has dual alarms, great for working couples.

    Overview

    Overview: This versatile system from Oregon Scientific combines a weather station that shows you local conditions at a glance and a portable Public Alert radio that keeps you up to date when weather hazards and other emergencies threaten.

    Weather Station Features

    Overview: The weather station forecasts the weather, provides indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity readings, a clock, calendar and alarm, as well as a recharging cradle for the radio.

    LCD Screen: The LCD screen on the weather station displays the following information:

    • Weather display
    • Alarm 1
    • Alarm 2
    • Atomic clock signal status
    • Time/alarm time/calendar
    • Low battery icon for remote sensor
    • Channel number/reception status
    • Outdoor temperature
    • Outdoor humidity
    • Indoor area icon
    • Indoor temperature
    • Indoor humidity

    Remote Sensor: The supplied sensor receives and transmits atomic clock signals, collects outdoor temperature and humidity readings, and then relays them back to the weather station. The weather station can be used with up to 4 other remote temperature-humidity sensors.

    Temperature and Humidity Data: This product can display current, minimum, and maximum temperatures and humidity percentage information collected by the remote sensor and weather station (indoor). Outdoor data is collected and displayed approximately every 60 seconds. Indoor data is collected and displayed every 10 seconds.

    Weather Forecast: The unit will forecast the next 12 to 24 hours of weather within a 19 to 31 miles radius with 70 to 75 percent accuracy.

    Automatic Clock Set: The main unit is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock once it is brought within range of the US Atomic Clock radio signal. When the unit is within range, its radio-control mechanism will override all manual settings unless the auto-reception function is manually disabled. This process generally takes about 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal.

    Alarms: The main unit is equipped with two 2-minute crescendo alarms. The alarms turn on softly and will gradually get louder over the 2-minute period. If no button is pressed, the alarm will automatically silence after 2 minutes. The alarm will then sound again after 8 minutes.

    Controls on Back of Unit:

    • ?C / ?F switch: allows you to switch temperature reading from Celsius to Fahrenheit

    Controls on Front of Unit:

    • Up and Down Keys: allows you increase or decrease settings on the Atomic Alarm Clock
    • Channel: switches remote sensors
    • Mode: changes display and settings
    • Memory: allows you to view current maximum/minimum temperature and humidity readings
    • Alarm: allows you to view alarm status and set alarm

    Public Alert Radio Features

    Overview: This radio operates on the same radio frequencies used by the National Weather Radio (NWR) and can send you NOAA alert messages to warn you about weather and other environmental dangers. This lightweight, splashproof radio is constructed of durable materials and has a reception range of up to 50 miles (64 km). It is also equipped with a digital clock and daily alarm.

    National Weather Service (NWS): The NWS is an agency within the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that operates a nationwide network of radio stations known as the NOAA Weather Radio (NWR). The NWR radio system broadcasts warning information for all types of hazards both natural and technological (tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, floods, evacuations, civil danger warnings & more). Working in conjunction with the Emergency Alert System (EAS), NWR is considered to be the most comprehensive emergency information system.

    NWR Network: The nationwide NWR network consists of more than 800 stations in the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. Pacific Territories. Broadcasts are designed to meet local needs. Routine programming is repeated every few minutes and consists of local forecast, regional conditions and marine forecasts. Additional information, including river stages and climatic data, is also provided. During emergencies, these routine broadcasts are interrupted to report specific warnings, watches or other critical information.

    Specific Area Message Encoding: Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) codes can be entered to receive weather and environmental information specific to an affected or endangered local geographical area. Up to nine SAME codes can be entered into nine display fields. With SAME codes, the user can select the geographical area(s) of interest (a SAME code typically covers a county or portion of a county). SAME warning messages have three classifications depending upon the severity of emergency; Warning, Watch and Statement.

    Alarm: The radio has two alarms that can be used together or independently. Alarm 1 and alarm 2 are identified by different sounds. When an alarm goes off, it will sound for 1-minute. Pressing the snooze button will pause the alarm for eight minutes.

    Power: The radio comes with a rechargeable battery for portable use. For home use, the weather station provides a recharging cradle, which also powers the radio even when the rechargeable battery is not installed.

    Remote Sensor Features

    Overview: This remote temperature-humidity sensor can receive and transmit atomic clock signals, collect outdoor temperature and humidity readings, and then relay them back to the weather station.

    LCD Screen: The LCD screen on the sensor displays the following information:

    • US time zone indicator
    • Reception
    • Channel number
    • Low battery indicator
    • Time
    • Temperature (?C or ?F)
    • Relative humidity
    • Temperature/humidity reading

    Sensor Placement: When placing the sensor, take the following into account:

    • Place the sensor out of direct sunlight and moisture
    • Do not place the sensor more than 98 feet (30 meters) from the weather station
    • Position the sensor so that it faces the weather station, minimizing obstructions such as doors, walls, and furniture
    • Place the sensor in a location with a clear view to the sky, away from metallic or electronic objects
    • Position the sensor close to the weather station during cold winter months, as below-freezing temperatures may affect battery performance and signal transmission

    Note: You may need to experiment with various locations to get the best results.
