Which Emergency Radio is Best?


Emergency Radio

The rugged & reliable Sangean MMR-88


Which radio is best in an emergency situation?

In a survival situation, you want the peace of mind to know that you have the most current information. We have learned (the hard way) that radio is one of the few reliable means of receiving information in a disaster scenario. Especially when there is no power or internet.


Having a battery powered radio can make a serious improvement to your state of mind after a large scale earthquake or other disaster.


What brand is best?

There are no shortage of portable radios available. We choose to stock Sangean radios because they are the most reliable and get the best reception. They are made in Taiwan and Sangean make many of the radio components for other high quality brands of radios.


Which model is right for me?
