Midland Radios Emergency MultiPower / Crank AM/FM/WX
The ER102 is also a valuable survival and emergency warning resource because it can be powered four different ways, which ensures that you'll never lose touch. It can run on three AA alkaline batteries, an AC adapter, crank function, or rechargeable battery.
The ER102's basic emergency radio features include seven preset weather channels, a frequency band between 162.400 and 162.550 MHz, an alert with a 1050 Hz tone, and an informative AM/FM radio. It also has a thermometer with a freeze alert and an alarm clock with buzzer, local weather, or AM/FM radio waking possibilities. The ER102 even features an Alert Override, which automatically switches from your AM/FM radio station to warn you of hazardous conditions approaching.
Besides weather alerts and Alert Override, the radio has 3 x 1" display alert, voice alert, or even a flashlight alert feature that is ideal for the hearing impaired. Like other Midland emergency radios, the ER102 comes equipped with the versatile All Hazards Alert. This last feature provides a number of other emergency announcements besides weather conditions. It alerts you to a child abduction (Amber Alert) emergency; a nuclear power plant warning; a biological hazard warning; a civil emergency message; a fire warning and even a landslide warning. By combining AM/FM radio with a variety of hazard alerts and weather warnings, the ER102 is sure to keep you entertained - and more importantly - informed if an emergency is happening in the area.

I like it is small and therefore easiily out of the way. Seems to work fine although it took me a day or so to figure out when I was trying to charge the battery I actually needed to plug the battery into the radio. It came in the battery compartment so I wrongfully thought it was already connected and just needed to be plugged in to charge. Then when it didn't charge finally got it figured out. Now I'm 75 years old so a younger whippersnapper might not have this trouble! This also may have contributed to the initial problems I had learning how to set the radios functions. However once getting it all straight in my mind the radio works fine and has a good sound for it's small size.
