Hello M:R Nation –
The month is May and that means one thing for most of us… “Storm Season”. Over the last week, the nation has witnessed the devastating storms roll through the plains and southern states and unfortunately, that was just the beginning. During this time of year, this is just the “norm”. With that being said, it’s impossible to ever become used to or predict the deadly storms and tornadoes that folks like us have to deal with on a weekly basis.
We say, “like us” because Mission Repair employees live in an epicenter for this type of weather (NE Kansas) and It’s unpredictable and just down right scary a lot of the time. In fact, this is the reason why if you ask our employees what their favorite season is, most will not say Spring. Now, please don’t mistake this as living in fear. We have adapted and do what humans do best, PREPARE! Which leads me to the purpose of this blog: The Eton ARC Weather Radio FRX 1!
The American Red Cross FRX1 is a hand turbine powered AM, FM, weather radio. Its LED flashlight and glow-in-the-dark locator guarantees you’ll always have access to light. Aside from crank power, the FRX has a DC-input (mini-USB) for AC power. This radio also gives the option for individual radio listening, via the headphone output. It makes a great addition to any emergency preparedness kit. No plugs or wires required.
