Grundig Eton FR1000 Voicelink Survival Radio Hands On
Gizmodo has a hands on sneak peak at the Grundig Eton FR1000 Voicelink Survival Radio. We love the way it looks an the amount of stuff it can do for you in an emergency is staggering. It has AM/FM/NOAA Weather/2-Way GMRS Radio, a Flashlight, siren, and Cellphone charger. It runs off of 4AAs, but has a hand crank as well to power it.
Awesome: The Eton FR1000 Voicelink is maybe one of the most pornograpic survival radios I've ever seen, but functionally so. It has AM/FM/NOAA Weather/2-Way GMRS Radio. And a Flashlight, siren, and Cellphone charger. It runs off of 4AAs, but has a hand crank. The design seems superfluous, but those cutouts actually protect the knobs. There's a large handle on the back. If I were to die stranded in the wilderness, I might be slightly less upset clutching one of these beautiful machines. $150.
The Catch: No word on water resistance, and the recessed knobs seem hard to turn with gloves on.
