While most professional race car drivers concentrate solely on their race programs, Jim Beaver has been hard at work the last two years building an all-encompassing brand consisting of mainstream media work, social media, brand ambassadorship, as well as an elite level racing program.  By merging his background in racing, radio, the auto industry, and business and marketing, he has taken the action motorsports world by storm.

Jim Beaver has built The Down & Dirty Radio Show Fueled By Speed Energy into the largest action motorsports radio show in the world. His voice reached over 200,000 unique listeners in 2012.  Covering off-road, rally, drifting, supercross, and snocross, Beaver has created a weekly show dedicated to the motorsports and athletes relevant to today’s generation of fans.

Expanding its range of GMRS radios, Cobra Electronics introduces two powerful two-way radios.  The affordable CXT135 and CXT235 feature advanced NOAA Weather Radio (NWR).  The CXT235 also has All Hazards Alert, providing audible alerts.

The new NWR feature allows listening to the NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards broadcasting of continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service nationwide network of transmitters.  NWR relays official weather service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The CXT135 is the most economical weather radio on the market.  It has a range of up to 16 miles, Power Saver circuitry for extended battery life, Call Alert and rechargeable NiMH batteries.

The powerful CXT235 includes all the features of the CXT135, plus a larger range of up to 20 miles.  It also features NOAA All Hazards Alerts, which provide loud audible tones in the event of a weather alert or other emergency.  The NOAA Alert feature activates an automatic alarm on the radio if NOAA sends a tone alert with the warning.  The tone will activate an alarm on the CXT235, even if the audio volume is turned down.  This is especially useful for warnings which occur at night when most people are sleeping.
