Compact Radio w/ SW for B.O.B.


This is the radio we stock in our Bug-Out-Bags. It is very compact, runs on two (2) AA batteries and provides excellent reception of AM/FM and SW frequencies. The unit is only 3.4″ X 2.55″ X .83″ and weighs just 85 Grams (not including batteries), so it is easy to pack in a small kit. We vacuum seal ours with extra Eneloop rechargeable batteries. It is worth noting that CountyComm is a great resource for unique items at fair prices.
