Oregon Scientific's Complete Regional Weather Station draws upon the MSN Direct service, first used to deliver news and information to SPOT watches, to get weather information via FM radio waves. No weather sensors are used by the device, as is common with other weather station style products. Instead, a variety of weather information is delivered every two minutes in the top one hundred U.S. and Canadian metropolitan areas via data from The Weather Channel.

The weather information delivered is extremely comprehensive, covering three day weather forecast and description, temperature and humidity with trend indicator, precipitation chance, wind direction, wind speed, gust wind, wind chill, dew point temperature, heat index, UV index, EPA air-quality reading, rain level with last 24 hours of history, sunrise and sunset times, moon phase and NWS weather warnings, watches and advisories.
