This is ideal for scanning enthusiasts interested in receiving bad weather alerts or information, in addition to this there is a Skywarn facility.

During my testing I found the electronic sweeper feature of the PSR-100 really user friendly, this function permits the user to scan the full range of frequencies or user specified frequencies can be scanned. Frequency ranges can also be omitted from a scan. This exclusion facility is ideal for ignoring channels such as pager or broadcast frequencies.
