ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NEW JERSEY -- Emergency radio - These things are GREAT!
Five months ago, I bought 3 of these; one for me, one for my brother in Texas and 1 for a friend in Mississippi.
My friend in MS. has needed it on three occasions since and has referred it to 3 other friends.
It really came in handy during the tornadoes and flooding there.
She lives in a rural area where power outages are common.
The sound and reception [here anyway] is very good, even without extending the antenna beyond the "anchored" position.
The unit contains an emergency integral small "flashlight" and alarm.
Turning the small crank handle [dynamo] for 30 seconds recharges the battery for 30 minutes of use.
