Preppers: Shortwave Radio: Our Pick

I’ve  been thinking about this recently if all hell broke loose I would want to know what’s happening and if it’s coming near us.  So I thought we better think about getting a shortwave radio to stay informed.  I’m one of those since 9-11 if I don’t know what’s going on I get nervous.  What happened on 9-11 was a wake-up call for me and my family.  I did some research and it looks like the Eton measures up to be the premium shortwave radio on the market.  The thought of and EMP has us preparing for the worst.  Now to protect this shortwave radio from an EMP we will need to make a Faraday that will protect our electronics.  I did more research on this and it looks like it’s fairly simple to make a Faraday with a galvanized steel trash can styrofoam but make sure you remove all the screws and bolts from the lids.  My husband says we need walkie talkies too.

We found the Eton at Amazon for $321.53

With over 7 decades of Grundig heritage and quality engineering, the Satellit 750 delivers the same excellence with its radio reception and audio quality. It has the classic looks and styles to match its outstanding performance. When you want a listen-to-it-all radio, the Satellit 750 is the radio for you with broadcasts in every radio wavelength – AM, FM, LW, SW, SSB, and VHF aircraft band frequencies. The 360° rotating AM antenna pulls in even the weakest of signals for full, bold sound. Plus, DSP technology enhances tuning sensitivity and fields out interference. You have direct access to news and music from all over the world and can program up to 1000 channels so you can tune in with ease.

We received the Eton Grunding Shortwave Radio today, we were very impressed with the sound and clarity it automatically picked up a radio station that was at least a 100 miles away without adding an additional antenna. We will keep you updated as we run more test on it to see if it does everything it says it will do. The sound is clear and clean no static at all!  So far, it’s a winner! If you have one or are interested leave your comments. And let us know what kind of survival equipment you recommend for preppers.
