I wanted a wired unit, but could not find one. They told me I could 
bring it back if I had problems. I told them it might take a couple 
months to find out.  They said, that's fine.

I have a cheap, "Acurite", wireless from Lowe's, with no 
complaints...Well, maybe one.  Having to change batteries every few 
years.  It uses the 440 band for a link. I've never heard it and and 
apparently its never heard me.
