I listen to the weather band, but during bad storms the TV station's give up to the minute warnings for tornados and hurricane tracking. The NOAA station takes several minutes to get the information out. It doesn't pick up well at my house either during bad weather.wilbur_the_goose said:brant, you should be using NOAA weather radio for weather warnings! Not your TV stations.
here is one for $149.99 i don't know if thats reasonableStuart Sweet said:I don't think it will be long until you can buy a reasonably priced portable TV with ATSC, but there don't seem to be any yet.
It didn't look like it had a battery. It will probably suffer the same problem as other "portable" ATSC TVs have had - really needs an external antenna to work halfway decent.Christopher Gould said:here is one for $149.99 i don't know if thats reasonable
The product description says it's powered by an included ac adapter.scooper said:It didn't look like it had a battery. It will probably suffer the same problem as other "portable" ATSC TVs have had - really needs an external antenna to work halfway decent.
I have a usb tuner(they are about $70 now) for my laptop and it shortens the battery life a good bit. a laptop with a usb tuner on battery isn't a portable TV.jerry downing said:There are ATSC tuners that can plug into a USB slot. They are about the size of a flash drive and cost under $100. Use one on a laptop and you are all set. I am not sure if they are USB powered, but I believe that they are. Check first before buying if you want to use it during a power outage.
