This is an excellent radio for universal listening, even when you’re off-grid. It has an AM/FM tuner and a shortwave receiver, as well as Bluetooth compatibility for streaming content from another device. Its rich LCD screen is great for visibility, and the radio data system (RDS) for FM lets you see station call letters, style of music, song title and artist. You can set the station spacing and frequency for clear reception wherever you are, and select wide or narrow bandwidth to improve fidelity while minimizing static noise.
There is a telescoping antenna to adjust the clarity of your stations, but you can also connect an external antenna for even better reception. Approximately 12 1/2" wide by 6 1/2" tall by 3" thick, the radio weighs 3 lb 11 oz and runs on four D batteries (not included), or you can plug it in using the supplied 7V DC adapter; a battery strength indicator lets you know when batteries are running low.
Connect your headphones into the 3.5mm earphone jack to listen on your own, and take your radio with you easily using the built-in hand strap.
