Hello everyone.
All this talk about field gear reminds me of something - I recently
saw advertised in a catalog a solar powered am/fm radio. For cloudy
days the radio had a hand crank to charge it up. Problem is I don't
remember what the catalog was. Has anyone seen this radio, or one
just like it? If so, where? I'd like to buy it. It was at a good
price, about $35- 40US. Seems like
a wonderful piece of field gear (in fact, could it have even been SW

I had a beautiful tiny Grundig multiband radio with me in the field -
it was also an alarm and clock. Got it on special for $99. It was
priceless on lonely nights. Unfortunately someone else had an eye
for it too, and I never saw it again. But very well worth the $ for
the pleasure it brought me.
