the first layer of protection, 30 miles from the radar. at that distance, the beam is very low, meaning you can see almost the entire storm. everything below 2,000 feet. the outer ring is 60 miles away. we can see everything below 5,000 feet. so if you're within either of these rings, stormranger's got you covered. the areas least served by traditional radars are theç on most likely to get severe weather. just three years ago in reading, a monster hail storm dumped so much hail, they needed plows to clear it. the closest radar in 110 miles away. we can detect it sooner and let you know wherever you are before the storm hits. get is closer means pore
