Owen just sent me this email about several alert radios.

I just asked Bob Hamlin if he had plans to bulk buy similar radios - like he did 5 years ago.  He said no because "they are old technology". He said Nixle is much better (if your cell phone can receive text messages) because you can see the alert message. If you have an alert radio, you could miss the audible message. Maybe newer radios offer the ability to replay the last message. 

Bob has set up Nixle so it automatically transmits NOAA Alert messages to us. You can save the text message on your phone for future reference. 

If you haven't register for Nixle, please do so - http://www.nixle.com/

Would a cell phone wake somebody up with a text message??

My cell phone is always either on me or near me. There is a unique audible sound when I get a text msg and it vibrates in case I have the sound turned down. I got an amber alert the other day and the sound shocked me. It would have woken me up. I have a feeling a NOAA/Nixle Alert would do the same in case of a major alert. (I need to ask Bob about that.)  
For those who don't have a phone that can receive text msgs, and who want redundancy, they should invest in a radio.

If you are away from your home, then return, do you check your radio for alerts? Is there a blinking light or something to attract your attention?
