etón FR250

Be prepared and aware with the etón FR250 emergency radio. This affordable portable receives AM (530-1710 kHz), FM 88-108 MHz and the seven major shortwave bands: 5.25-6.4, 6.9-7.45, 9.3-10.05, 11.4-12.1, 13.3-13.9, 15-15.75 and 17.45-18.10 MHz. This radio can be powered from four different sources:
1) From the built-in rechargeable Ni-MH rechargeable battery that takes charge from the dynamo crank and from an AC adaptor (AC adaptor not included).
2) From 3 regular AA batteries (not supplied).
3) From the AC adaptor alone (AC adaptor not included).
4) From the dynamo crank alone, even with no battery pack installed.

There is also a built-in triple LED light source that is surprisingly bright. There is a mini earphone jack. A fine-tuning control knob is superimposed on the main tuning control knob for precise tuning. Pleasant audio is provided from the 2½ inch speaker. All antennas built-in:  telescopic antenna for FM/SW and an internal ferrite bar antenna for AM. There is even a built-in siren for emergency signaling. The rear panel has a 3.5 mm earphone jack, DC input, and cellular power out jacks.

The FR250 is not only perfect for emergencies, but also for camping, hiking, or anywhere you need to stay in touch. The GPU3504 AC adapter is optional.
