for this item:
Radios - you'll likely need one WTSHTF.
Some are worthless in an emergency and often lack the sensitivity to receive channels or only get AM/FM.
Some are simply junk giveaway items or have fragile parts that break - ok, actually most of these are plastic and fragile unless you are buying a multipurpose VHF/UHF/MURS professional transceiver.
We don't want to sound elitist here so use whatever you can afford. If you can afford a radio for around $50 then here is one that has considerable utility and may prove a lifesaver. People seem to be able to buy $500 phones and $100 sneaks - so pop for one of these type of radios.
This Kaito also sounds good when played for everyday use so if convenient, keep one handy wherever you are. They come in different colors so each family member, vehicle, evac car kit or work location can have a different color if you wanted to differentiate them that way. [Read More ...]
