Crank Powered Family Radio

Cool, now you can have it all! Your hand-powered flashlight/cell phone charger/radio.

And this 22 channels of fun FRS/GMRS radio. So now you can talk your fellow stranded "disaster refugees" and talk about the weather! ;-) Unless that is, you allready have a hand-crank weather radio!
American Red Cross FR300 Emergency Radio


This beauty is sold by Life-Gear which also offers an impressive array of disaster supplies, like food and water and complete emergency kits.

I almost want to buy the complete sets of products, and wait for FEMA! Well huricane season will be here soon...

New Yaesu FT-450

A few days ago I wrote about the new Yaesu FTM-10R, now here's the FT-450.

A HF radio that does 160-6 meter all-mode.

I think it looks somewhat like the FTM-10r, well at least the style. Now they just need a handheld radio to complete the collection.

W00T

I just discovered WOOT. It's the perfect impuls buy site!
They have a daily special, and usually a good deal that you can buy untill it sells out.

Every day at midnight WOOT posts a new deal, and there's quite a community out there they wait patiently for midnight (central time) to roll around what else they can spend there money on again.

Some things you might find: Computers and accesories, Pulsar Watches, Roomba vacuums, DVD recorders.

You can actually find a feed further down the page of the current special.

W00T stands for We Own the Other Team!
So be prepared to be w00ted and pwned! There are some good deals to be had!
