It's funny you should mention this as I was looking at their FR360 model earlier because I ran into one where I work. How does it hold up in the field?I have a little eton that I used during the northeast Ice storm last year for a week. Great little hand crank radio that has Emergency flashing LED light and siren.
Has anyone here every used a hand cranked radio for prolonged periods of time with constant use? I am curious as to how well they would hold up to extended use plus sitting on the shealf without use for a few years. Did you have any problems with the hand crank jamming or breaking? Is it possible to over crank the radio?I have a little eton that I used during the northeast Ice storm last year for a week.

It is a sturdy unit and has worked well for me. I think it has 7 weather bands. I like the fact that it has a communication radio also. Well worth the money. You can get a set of midland radios to compliment the communication ability.
