I found the radar CX alarms annoying especially the receiver. I also own the whychwood AVX-S alarms which I prefer and I paid 25 for each head and receiver so 100 all in. As with all cheaper alarms there is a downside in that the battery compartment lets In water but not the alarm itself. I solve this by whipping off the back cover when I get home and removeImg the battery And leaving them to air dry. Batteries last much longer as well doing this

Another thumbs up for the JRC CX's. I guess I would judge any alarm up against the Delkims which are brilliant to be fair, but these JRC alarms (and remote) have all the features and at a third of the price stack up extremely well.

JRC CX 3.1 Radar Alarms.

I purchased a set of these about 6 months ago and have used them extensively since then. Despite receiving some severe drenching's, I have to report that they have performed faultlessly.
I picked them up off of the 'bay for 99.00 delivered, the price has risen slightly since then (cheapest I have found them recently is about 110.00) but for 3 alarms with a receiver they offer good value for money.

Packed full of features, they have separate tone, volume and sensitivity adjustments, and whilst the knobs appear a little "plasticky" at 1st glance, they have given me no problems whatsoever.
The alarms have three settings, activated by a simple toggle on/off switch (why can't ALL alarms have this type of switch?). You can see at a glance which mode they are in, and a simple click to the middle (off) position stops you annoying your bankside neighbours with your alarms continually going off whilst you are re-setting bobbins etc.
With the switch to the right the alarms are on in "night light" mode, in the middle they are off, and to the left they are on in "normal" mode. Simple. And the supplied protective hard cases will not go on the alarms unless the switch is in the "off" position, so you can't accidentally leave them switched on, draining your batteries.
On the subject of batteries, mine are still holding almost full charge despite being used for the aforementioned 6 months. Brilliant!!
The alarms will indicate whether you have had a run or a "dropback" by two different tones, and the LED's will indicate this too. The latching lights stay on for about 20 seconds or so, so if you miss the initial indication a glance at the alarms will show you which one it was that indicated some action.

The actual alarm heads are a nice size, not too big, so they look neat and compact. I haven't used the receiver yet, but pairing this to the alarms was simplicity itself, and it has a range of 150 yards, one of the best there is.
All in all I would definitely recommend these alarms 100% to anybody. I have the set of three all in blue, but you can buy them with three different colours if you're not quite as cool as me.....
