Voyager Yellow Emergency Radio

by Heartland America customer on 10/3/2011

The solar panel charged the nicad batteries from a 100 watt equivelent CFL desk lamp bulb in about 8 hours so I dont have to order the opitional AC adapter from the manufacturer. The AM clearly pulls in stations from the Alabama and Lousiana coast at night , the FM while not stereo is crisp and clear and the SW bands pulled in many stations and it tunes in pretty accurately for a manual scale tuner. For the price , I am very happy with this radio.
