American Red Cross FR1000 Voicelink Hand-Crank AM/FM/NOAA Weather Two-Way GMRS Clock Radio with Flashlight, Siren and Cell Phone Charger

The other day we reviewed the American Red Cross FR150 Solar-Powered AM/FM/Weatherband Portable Radio with Flashlight, which is great for hiking, camping, or to keep in your car. But it’s not the only option from the American Red Cross. If you are looking for a feature-rich emergency radio/flashlight combo, the FR1000 is the answer. The FR1000 runs on batteries or a self-powered hand-crank, so the radio can keep you informed, even when the power is out. Tune into AM, FM and NOAA Weather Band frequencies for the most up-to-date information in case of an emergency. The FR-1000 Voicelink is more than just a radio though–it’s a two-way walkie-talkie feature with GMRS technology that lets you stay in touch with the outside world, while the cell phone charging jack ensures your access to available mobile phone networks. You also get a flashlight, a beacon light that can function as an SOS signal and a siren. And all of this can be powered with the twist of a crank.
