Eton Field Radiosの概要The 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. The FR feature NOAA weather channels, AM/FM, and world wide multiband channels to stay informed. 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.
