What are all the capabilities of the First Alert Defender Radar?

It is a state of the art piece of technology. When it hits the air in
September, the First Alert Defender will be something you and your
family can rely on to keep you safe when it comes to weather in

The Defender can do so much but some of its highlights include being the
most powerful and advanced radar in Kentucky. It's one of the world's
first dual polarity radars and it boasts a million watts of scanning

The Defender is unique in the fact that it has dual polarity. In simple
terms it means the radars send out two radar beams, one horizontally the
other vertically. This gives the First Alert weather team the ability to
read twice as much data. It also allows for our weather team to track
tornadoes at night, which can be a life saver.

WKYT is among only a handful of elite television stations with this type
of technology. It is all in an effort to keep you and your family safe
when it comes to the weather.
