    This radio features a flashlight, 2-way radio base, weather station and radio. I like that i have the option of using the hand-crank, ac/dc adapter or batteries for power. We have a set of walkie-talkies that we plan to use in conjuction with this emergency radio. I keep it charged 24/7 on my kitchen counter.

    This is much better than others on the market because other radios are around $50-$60 and they do not have the capability of the 2-way radio. Also, having other power sources is important, this one has 5, at most others have about 3!

    I like the idea of this radio, it's one thing to have a radio, but you realize after seeing this that what is the point of having a radio if you cannot communicate with the people you are hearing.

    I read a lot of reviews on this radio before I bought it. I also researched the product extensively. The power outage is the maximum allowed by the FCAA. This radio has more than enough features to make it one of the best buys for the price. I bought 5 of them -- one for each of my family's housholds. We all live within 3 miles of each other in a small city. I went around to all of our housholds to check the W-T channels and found it to be very effective for communicating in an emergency. Very happy with my purchase.

    I have an amateur radio (extra class) and GMRS license, so I consider myself knowledgeable about radios. This is a GREAT radio! Not only do you have virtually unlimited talk time (because of they dynamo generator), but you also have a mic that is comfortable to use! The sound is good and for you technical types, look up the specs on this thing (Rx sensitivity, adjacent channel rejection, etc...) because they really are good. Best of all is the price! These have come down a lot in the past few years!

    I just got this in the mail today. The sound is crisp and clear, the LED light is moderately powerful. The handset looks somewhat flimsy, but I plan on getting a set of two-way radios anyway. If nothing else, the handset is a good back up. The only thing that would make this nicer would be if there was a solar panel as an option for charging - but there is another dynamo radio offered on here as well that has this option, sans radio handset (and a little bit less expensive). Either way you go, you'll be happy with it.

    Don't get me wrong, this has a flashlight, NOAA All Hazard Alert Radio that can save your family if you leave it turned on Alert. Plus you can charge your cell phone but if you expect to talk more than 50-100 yards, you will be disappointed. It's the antenna or lack there of and its height that gets your signal out, not the 5 watt output.

    Remember transmitting on GMRS(general mobile radio service) frequencies requires an FCC license, but no exam to get a call sign that is expensive (last time I had mine it was $80/year).
    Amateur radio license cost $15 for the exam and if you pass, its good for 10 years and you get a call sign, w/o needing to know morse code anymore.
    Btw, the channel's you can use w/o a license are in the FRS (family radio service) band. The output is 1/4 (.25) of a watt.
    This makes a great intercom for the house/yard but if it reaches beyond that your getting the help of your GOD. You can talk on these about as far as you can yell w/o your neighbors hearing you under optimal conditions. So I back up readyfreddy on his review.
