One of the best low cost HAM radios on the market. It is small and easy to carry and pack away. One of the must haves for emergency preparedness if you do not want to spend that much. Having a HAM radio on hand in an emergency when all communications are lost due to hurricanes and other natural disasters, a HAM radio can still keep you in touch with others both local and far out side of the area that is affected.
