Need weather alert radio that’s rugged, rechargeable, and reliable, not to mention solar-powered, splashproof, smartphone & tablet charging and with S. A.M. E. technology. The FRX5 is just the ticket. With a rechargeable lithium battery, super-duper solar panel and hand crank power generator, it’s an essential for every emergency kit—at home, at work, or in the great outdoors.


When the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast NOAA emergency weather alerts for your area such as hurricanes, tornadoes and severe storms. The FRX5 also features S. A.M. E. technology (Specific Area Message Encoding) for extra alert power. Just enter your S. A.M. E. county code and if there’s a warning, watch or advisory you’ll see it—with alert level lights—and hear about it, too. You can set up to 25 locations so you’ll be safe, wherever you are.


Stay in tuned with AM/FM/ 7 NOAA / Environment Canada weather band stations keeping you up to date. The back-lit digital tuner makes it easy to find and see your stations. Use the AUX input to play tunes from your smartphone, MP3 player or any audio source.
