Radio 7: C.Crane CC Skywave AM FM Weather Air Shortwave Radio

Radio 7 and our last radio before a week of blog vacation is the radio I am taking with me on vacation, my C. Crane CC Skywave AM FM Weather Air Shortwave Radio.

I bought mine used for $45 shipped. It's the second one I have owned. The first one died. I am hoping for better luck this time around. I've had it for over a year and it is still going strong so far. 

I liked the radio so much that I bought a second one. For travel, it can't be beat. Excellent reception across all bands with the bonus of having the weather bands and the air band for if you are sitting around at the airport and want to hear planes take off and land.

It uses 2 AA rechargeables and charges with a USB cord. That is a fantastic feature and the 2 AA batteries last a long, long time.

Of all of my radios, this is my favorite one to shove in the bag when I'm leaving the house. It's like the Swiss Army Knife of radios. It does it all and does it all quite well!

Left side - another green headphone jack and the USB in for recharging the batteries

The right side tuning knob and analog volume - much better than digital volume that I never seem to get just right!

The back!

You even get a nice pouch for travel.

This is an excellent radio - one of my favorites of all time!
