The Eton FRX5 weather alert radio isn't just great for emergency situations, like riding out a storm at home. It's also a great choice for any extended outdoor activity — skiing, camping, rafting, or just spending a day at the beach.

Eton FRX5 emergency radio

Radio and Weather Alerts

The FRX5 has a built-in digital AM/FM tuner. It can receive all seven NOAA weather bands, so you can monitor changing atmospheric conditions. You can program up to 25 locations into the FRX5 using S.A.M.E. (Specific Area Message Encoding). You'll receive any warning, watch or advisory information alerts for your area.

Four ways to recharge

At home, you can recharge the FRX5's built-in rechargeable batteries with its AC power adapter. And for times when the power goes out, or you're far from a power source, the built-in hand-cranked dynamo can keep the FRX5 powered up. If it's a sunny day, you can also let the radio's built-in solar panel do the work. And you can even keep the FRX5 operational with three “AAA” batteries (available separately).

Emergency lighting

The FRX5 has a built-in LED flashlight, so when the power goes out, you don't have to search for a light. It also has a red emergency beacon that flashes to alert others to your location. Built into the handle is an adjustable ambient light that illuminates the immediate area with a warm glow.

Power to spare

The FRX5 also has a USB charging port for your smartphone or tablet. You can ensure your phone has enough juice to stay in contact — thanks to the hand-cranked dynamo.
