radio ready

Self-Powered and Solar-Powered AM/FM/Shortwave Radio with NOAA Weatherband, Flashlight, Siren and Cell Phone Charger
When your outdoor adventures take you off the grid, you need a device that can fill multiple needs. The American Red Cross FR500 is a compact unit that you can toss in your rucksack and take anywhere. It functions as an AM, FM, and shortwave radio with NOAA weatherband. It also has a flashlight, an emergency beacon, and an emergency siren. Plus, you can use it to charge your cell phone or MP3player. This little wonder can be powered with the hand crank, or solely by the sun—solar panels make this a very “green” device. Of course,battery power and AC power are also options.
This cool product came to our home about a month ago - but I have had a busy month and haven't had a chance to say how cool it is, I have never had a weather radio before, now S has since he was raised in a tornado prone area. but with all the snow and bad weather wehave had the last couple of years it is nice to have.
This came as a gift from PJ and OLLIE - a big thanks for the fun stuff they always find for us.
