Summary: I was passing a time in Florida and had to stay well prepared for the hurricanes season. With this radio I always received the alerts just in time to prepare myself and family for emergencies.
Summary: I bought this after taking a CERT class (Community Emergency Response Tech) for the weather alarm and SW-radio plus all the other features. It worked great until owning for two years. I hadn't used the crank very much and as other people have said, the knobs are not rugged...the crank broke off.
Eton FR-600, for best performance install an new NiMH battery.

Summary: I do love this radio. Though as pointed out in other reviews that the rechargeable battery dies very quickly. I even charged the battery up using a ac adaptor and found it still killed the battery in very few minutes.
