Emergency Radio is Great!!!!

  • Excerpt: Metal body, higher wattage transceiver, increase the power output of the hand-crank generator to speed the power storage/charging ability and keep the price where it is and you'll sell a million/billion in no time!!
  • Pros: Inexpensive, self powered or solar. Once charged fully, the rechargeable battery lasted over 12 hours of camping enjoyment. Has a standard CB 2 Way Radio Transceiver that has a good 15 mile LOS distance (verified on the river/highway). Easily recharges cell/sat phones.
  • Cons: Not a metal (aluminum/magnesium) housing. Has to be stored in a box to protect it from storage damage. Estimated 4-7 wattage 2 way is good for highway or flat land emergency use. But if you need to increase this do what I do and replace a few components to peak it out to 47 watt. I range Dallas from Waco, Texas!!

A great value, and an even better radio.

  • Excerpt: When it arrived it was a little smaller than I expected, but that was actually a plus. It takes up less counter space. I liked the USB port on the side, if you have a power outage, you can charge your phone with it, and if the radio goes dead, it has a hand crank that will charge the battery back up. You can either use the hand Mic to transmit, or unplug it and use the PTT button on the radio itself.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life

  • Summary: I didn't receive any alerts for upcoming snow/wind event. I have an Oregon Scientific hand held which did alert me. It's kind of cheaply made plastic. It has alot of features and accessories.
