Notes - If you don't need all the bells and whistles and are looking for a good basic emergency radio, this unit might have your name on it. The WR201 by Oregon Scientific has everything we want in a radio and then some, all arranged in a compact package. It is powered three ways, including solar, hand crank, and rechargeable battery. It includes a bright, three-LED flashlight and features a manually tuned radio that picks up AM, FM, and all seven WB frequencies. The best thing is that, for us, it picked up all bands clearly and loudly. Its retractable antenna can be pointed in all directions. It includes a USB outlet so that it can charge your other gadgets. A bonus feature unique to this radio in our guide is a 77-decibel emergency siren with red flashing LED light that can be turned on with the flick of a switch.
