A few thoughts on emergency radios. I discuss some of the features I was looking for and do an overview of two emergency radios I bought – one for home and one for my get home bag.
Some of the things that both of these emergency radios have include the ability to charge the battery by either solar or hand crank, NOAA weather channels and emergency lighting. Both of these radios have these features and more. They each have some different features, but fit the purposes and functions that I was looking for.
