FR Series are two consumer field radios for use outdoors and in the home. They are particularly suited for emergency use where access to information, communication, and product reliability are critical. To stay informed the FRs feature NOAA weather channels, AM/FM, and worldwide multiband channels. They also include a two-way walkie-talkie, and a cell phone charger so one can stay in touch even when the power is out. FRs also have a flashlight, siren, and an SOS light beacon. Each are powered by hand-crank dynamos and solar panels so these units always work.
