I am interested in getting a solar powered and/or crank powered radio. I would like to go a little better than an am/fm radio. Maybe something with at least the weather service or possibly side band? Interested in any recommendations, and especially hands on reviews. I am on a very STRICT budget. My wife is not very convinced of the necessity for preparation, so getting approval for anything expensive is trying. I have to pick my battles. Of course she pays medical insurance every month and definitely car insurance, but safety and comfort insurance is "whacko".
