Oh man, I just found a radio cooler than mine!

Say hello to the Eton FR1000 Voicelink. This is the next step up from my awesome emergency radio. In addition to AM/FM, shortwave, cell phone charger and a hand crank for power, it also has a two-way walkie-talkie feature and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather alert receiver. 

My gadget-geek heart is all a flutter for this new piece of prepare-aphernalia. (You like that new word I just coined?) 
I’d say it’s well worth the retail price, which ranges from $150 – $200. And for every sale the manufacturer, Etón Corporation, will contribute $1.50 to support the American Red Cross.
