These two radios look to share a similar software OS, if not very exact.
The Midland WR300 is cheaper, while the SANGEAN CL 100 has optional functions such as RDS and time/date, setting/sync through radio frequency but at nearly double the price.
SANGEAN CL -100
SANGEAN brand is known for making the best quality short wave radios, and their FM/AM- RBDS/weather radio, the CL-100, is not different from others. The desktop radio model is the only one we know of that does FM-RBDS, and it even includes an audio jack, so you link an external audio source.
The SANGEAN CL 100 is the same ability, and alert messages appear on the product’s upward-facing display. Virtual signal processing makes the quality of the top audio class, and you can store up to 5 presets for both FM and AM bands.
The clock radio of the SANGEAN CL 100 is convenient and features something called HWS, or a human wake-up system.
Essentially, music and alarms can be set to gradually get louder to smoothly wake up versus the conventional notice that can sometimes be harsh on your ears.

The CL 100 is the finest NOAA weather radio; it doubles as an FM and AM alarm clock, too, which makes it the best replacement for your present alarm clock.
A substantial bright screen displays the time, current, and battery life alerts. The device also has four radio presets for simple tuning.
Since this is a certified public alert radio, you will be capable of attaching an external alerting device, but one of my favorite features here is the customizable alerts. Say you live well inland, a county facing the water.
Marine warnings are immaterial to you, and the WR 400 can filter them out. Or perhaps you want to be changed to warnings and not watches.
