    Yaesu makes a good radio. I have a 757-GX base and I like it. I looked this one up and it looks like a good radio.

      I'm partial to the Yaesu FT-817. HF/VHF/UHF coverage that fits in a SAW pouch.

        Welcome to KENWOOD USA Site. In pursuit of further value creation by integrality our three core business segments and establish mobile & home multimedia system business

        I'll vote for the Kenwood TH-F6a which gives you 144/220/440 as well as SSB RX on HF... great rig!


        Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
        beat you to death with it because it is empty.

          What do yall think about just a basic survival radio? One of the hand cranked kinds? I mean, yeah you woundn't have 2-way capability, but at least you'd be able to get some kinda news & they're only about 30 bucks.

            You'd be getting questionable information from government controlled entities .... an mre would serve you better, not weigh as much and cost less ....

            Things are seldom what they seem.

              What's an MRE? In my lingo it's a Meal Ready to Eat, but I know it don't communicate too well.

                This is a radio I picked up a while back that I keep in my BOB. Not a bad on e for 35-40 bucks. 7 weather bands, NOAA weather alert, AM/FM. water proof, Solar powered, crank powered and optional AA battery powered with the ability to plug into AC. Also has headphones to listen to 'quietly'. Comes with half a dozen or so cell phone adapters to charge your cell phone from the built in solar panel or crank. Pretty good little radio for the price. I bought a few so the wife has one and the kids as well as having a few backups. Oh and its got a cheasy flashlight and strobe, with a map light on back of the solar panel.
                I guess I'm too new to post pictures yet but if you google Kaito Voyager multiband radio it will come up. Check it out and see what you think.
