Etón FRX3 Radio

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great for outdoor activities, picnics, lakeside, power outages. This is a great, compact radio for the little moment you want to add music to and not worry about where the power is coming from. The volume gets pretty loud and the sound is pretty good. A super useful tool for power outages and natural disaster issues, a great comfort to know I can charge my phone in an emergency.  This is not a backpacking radio. It may be splash proof, but I wouldn't test it. The knobs for adjusting tuning and… Full review

Grundig Mini400

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight, good reception, and shortwave. I love this little radio! I was carrying a Sony Walkman, but this beats it hands down for reception, plus it gets shortwave; a nice plus in the backcountry when reception is otherwise poor. Tuning is easy, and it has an external speaker for use around camp. And runs on two AAA batteries, the same as everything else I carry. Full review

Motorola Talkabout MR350R 2-Way Radios

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Much more complicated setup than the old Radio Shack walkie-talkies. I'd like to know what alternative, rechargeable batteries with extended capacity others are using successfully. Full review

Grundig Aviator G6

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a tough little radio with pretty good reception for its size (3" x just under 5"). It has a great feature set with the ability to pick up Air (Aviation) Band (from 117 to 137MHz), Short Wave (2000 KHz to 29999KHz), FM stations, AM Stations, LW Stations, as well as the ability to tune in SSB and listen to some HAM Operators. I received this radio as a gift several years ago.  It has been very durable during that time.  It basically is as good today as the day I received it.   It is a very… Full review

Etón Scorpion

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I am a beginner in the world of hiking gear so I had to do a little research to find that "all in one" device to fit our needs. At first glance the unit is impressive. Solar, dynamo and D/C power options, cool. When I opened the package and held it for the first time I could tell this thing was DURABLE.  The screen for the clock/am-fm-weather is backlit so you can see it at night, a plus. The flashlight is just FANTASTIC! It has a VERY bright and clean beam that is non-adjustable but a great median… Full review

Etón Scorpion

rated 4 of 5 stars So far so good for this little unit. Overall unit is exactly as advertised and comes equipped with a solar panel for charging, as well as a hand crank. The unit comes with 3 bands, AM/FM and NOAA Weather Band. Uses a digital tuning source for all. The buttons are rubberized or should say rubber sealed and can be a little tricky, but I can see why the unit is claimed to be splash proof. Overall the unit is built rather well, and doesn't feel cheap. The bottle opener could have been something a little… Full review

Grundig Mini400

rated 4 of 5 stars I was looking for a small radio for packing. I know most people use those little doodads that ya download music onto then stick earbuds in, Other compact radios I found also needed earbuds. I wanted something with an external speaker. Looked at some of the other crank style radios but thought they were a bit heavy and bulky This is a nice compact little radio with an external speaker. Fits in most any pocket. Have always been able to find a station with good reception on the FM side. The AM usually… Full review

Grundig Mini400

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I had been searching for a lightweight radio, alarm clock for camping and backpacking for over two years at the secondhand stores. None of them ever fulfilled my needs. I finally broke down and spent the cash. And I'm glad that I did! At home the local channels overwhelmed the thing. But taking it out in the field was a different matter. Grundig's tuner is real powerful. There is no loss of reception anywhere shy of the moon. The speaker will crack if you turn it up. But let's face it, one can not… Full review

Grundig Mini400

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought this from a Canadian electronics store, my second one of this type after misplacing my last one. But you can find it at REI or elsewhere in the US. This uses 2 AAA batteries, is very slim, and I find, powerful. I use it for sanity keeping at work, but also take it hiking and camping to play with the shortwave aspect. I have listened to Radio Free China (propaganda), Radio Havana (music), the BBC, amongst others... Dusk is the best time to catch the most listening options. It has a clock,… Full review
