The name of this unique devce says it all, as the good folks at Hammacher could not conceive a unique moniker, we all will have to make do with the Police Scanner/Weather/Atomic Clock Radio. What’s so special about it, you ask. After all, the vast array of buttons, knobs, and dials make it look too complicated to use for the average “dummy” back home.
For starters, the Police Scanner/Weather/Atomic Clock Radio is a combination of traditional AM/FM radio functions with police, traffic, weather, and TV bands all lumped into a single device.
