I question whether I really need the NOAA and shortwave. Whether AM/FM isn't enough. It always has been through so many hurricanes.
No worries bud. Let it out. It brings thought to minds of what's worth having and not.I've been thinking ham too, but is getting a license just a path leading them to your door, when the gov only want folks to hear their propaganda and not the real truth? Foreign gov shut down or restrict the web all the time. Not trying to hijack your thread, just to get the gist of it. Can we rely on any comm without it being censored or scrambled? Just my thoughts. Sorry for going off-track, no ideas on what radio to get.
That's pretty nice and you can charge your cell off of it too.Kinda funny but in the advertisement bar at the top this is the radio I have.
