    I have had a small Eaton for 10 years, it still works. If that says anything.

    Is there any way you can listen to HAM radio broadcasts with out having a license? May be a bit off topic but I know nothing about HAM radios and would like to just listen before I pursue anything further.

    You can listen, just not broadcast

    What kind of device do I need for that? Do I need an actual HAM radio or can I get a all in one frequency radio? What are some options?

    I picked up one of the boefeng radios. Not a lot of power but gets you started. Ypu can also do some of the open frequencies

    It depends on what you want to listen to. The Baofeng will get you local 2 meter and 70 cm. A decent shortwave should allow you access to ham bands. You can go to the ARRL website and get a list of the frequencies for each of the bands. Here is the link that will allow you to print it.

    ETA: When things get ugly, shortwave will be your best bet for distance news. You'll get other countries and can still get the ham bands. 20, 40 and 80 meter bands will probably have the most info. 2 meter and 440/70cm are local to you and might be tough on SW as the transmit on one freq and receive on another by way of a repeater. Being a ham myself, I've never tried local stuff on a SW radio.
