Hi Folks, Is there a way to turn down the volume for the weather alert on the BCT 15. NWS triggered a T-Storm warning today and the tone blew the cat off the desk, not to mention scaring the crap out of me.
This question has been asked a few times lately, i guess you guys must be getting some rough weather. Anyways, the short answer is no, its supposed to be loud to wake you up, and/or make for an interesting youtube cat-jumping-off-desk video.
That's why I have a separate weather alert radio on the other side of the room. Using the SAME weather alert is good on a mobile or portable unit but having a weather radio dedicated to alerts is probablly your better bet when you're in ther shack!! Also the weather alert radios have adjustable alarms, saves you from changing your shorts everytime there's a weather warning!
