Eton FRX3 American Red Cross Hand Turbine NOAA AM/FM Weather Alert Radio
When you’re stuck out in the middle of nowhere, almost every possible thing you’d require is here on the FRX3. First off, you’ve got four ways to keep your weather radio ready to go at all times. You can use the hand crank (one minute of crank time equals about 15-20 minutes of juice to power the unit), solar power, rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, and of course, traditional AAA disposable batteries. The unit has full spectrum AM/FM and NOAA weather bands with digital display and you can even set an alert function to broadcast any emergency reports that come up.
But we know radios are also for fun and entertainment. This model not only lets you listen to terrestrial radio stations for talk and music, but you can plug in any mobile devices that play music through the auxiliary port. Keep those devices charged as well by plugging them into the included USB port so you have them to use for the duration of your trip.
Using the FRX3 in the dark is a cinch because it not only contains an LED flashlight to light your way through the night, it also has a red LED beacon in case you get stranded. Best of all, you can easily find the unit under the cover of darkness with the attached glow in the dark locator.
