    We purchased this radio. The AM/FM and NOAA are fair. As far as considering this an emergency radio I was unable to talk to anyone. I would not recommend this radio to anyone who is considering a radio or communications for any emergency purpose. We now must pay a 6% restocking fee, and now, nearly $30 in shipping to return the product, virtually $15 each way. Sgt. Mike

    I was at Radio Shack last night and looked at Motorola 2 way radios, 35 mile range. They were $70.00, clerk said 35 miles was on flat land and less distance in the city. They also had a NOAA station. I don't have any land radios and feel something is better than nothing.:scratch:dunno: Any thoughts or feelings would be welcome. I prefer not to shop at Wally World, sorry if I offend anyone.
