My crank radio bit the dust last night (run over by a dirtbike) so I need a new one. It wasnt the best unit in the world anyways so I'm not exactly heartbroken over this. Ive been to every website I can find to purchase another one, but Ive had such success buying items reccommended on here I figured I should get your thoughts. Thank you much.

Sony do a nice quality one The ICF B200, as does Philips the AE1000. But on many other survivalist forums The Eaton FR 100 & 200 models appear to be very popular, trouble is they are sold under a different name in the US and I'm buggered if I can remember what it is.

Just remembered its GRUNDIG , Grundig in the US and Eation in the UK
www.pocket-lint.co.uk...

www.etoncorp.com...

another edit, in the US they do FR 250 -300- 350- & 400 models with facilitries specific to the US market

Of course. Its the least I can do. Thanks again, as I mentioned everything that has been reccommended on this site that I have purchased has worked out well. Kelly Kettle, blast match, wet fuel. No complaints, hopefully this string of success continues.

I stumbled across this thread more or less by accident... and Thank You to salchanra and Northern Raider...

I've been looking for a radio like this for a while as well, and have also ordered an FR 500 SolarLink...

Thanks, folks!

Great, i'm delighted we could help, Unfortunately i dont think they sell the 500 in the Uk so I can not get one myself.

Oops I was wrong again the New UK spec FR 550 is coming soon from Nevada Radio
