      In my (admittedly biased) opinion, the BC370CRS is the best All Hazards radio on the market. In addition to full SAME support (including paying attention to the end-of-message signal), it will alert to All Hazards in areas without NOAA coverage, but with alerts going out on AM or FM Broadcast stations.

      It also supports external trigger (for hearing or sight impaired alerting). Plus, is a 300-channel conventional scanner with AM/FM broadcast coverage and Atomic Clock.

      Only one receiver, though.

      Which competitor has a better one?
