Product Description

Color: Black

Radio Data System, or RDS, is a communications protocol standard for embedding amounts of digital information in conventional FM radio broadcasts. RDS standardizes several types of information transmitted, including time, station identification and program information. Connected to the Emergency Alert System (EAS) through NWR (National Weather Radio) network provided by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association), this feature will automatically activate the radio to inform you of any hazardous weather conditions or warnings including natural, environmental and public safety while the radio is set at the "Alert" mode. The newest and most advanced model from Kaito's Voyager radio family, the KA600 Voyager Pro is designed for both everyday use and emergency preparedness applications. It offers different methods to power up including optional AC/DC adapter, three AA batteries (not included), the built in rechargeable Ni MH battery that can be charged by the AC adapter, hand cranking or a computer, and the patented flip up 180 degree adjustable solar panel provides power for the radio even when no battery is installed. With its revolutionary design and versatile functions, it's not only an ideal choice of a bedside radio but also an indispensable tool for emergency preparedness purposes, travelling, camping, backpacking and other outdoor activities.

This one works and seems to be very well made and solid.

I think I just got two lemons, but I was not willing to take another chance.

The Weather Alert feature alone is well worth having in an emergency radio.

Overview:

(Short Version)
This radio earned a 5-stars rating for the reason that I have used and tested this radio for several months now and find the performance and features of this radio to meet and often exceed my expectations for an emergency / camping radio.

(Long Version)
For those who want a lot more information about this radio, below is a very long detailed review. If you are interested in this radio, this should be an informative review. Amazon displays only the first half of the review and to see it all you need to click on the blue "read more >" link at the bottom of the text. I tried to include information not previously mentioned in other reviews or available in the Amazon description. Included, is general information for improving the use of this or any radio's performance. This review is not too technical (this review is aimed mostly at the beginning user), but radios are technical instruments and will need a very slight technical understanding to achieve maximum performance.

Blue highlighted texts are links that you may click on to see the additional products on Amazon referred to in the review. None of these other Amazon accessory products are necessary to use the radio, but may be useful to get more performance from this radio or any radio for that matter and are included only as helpful guides.

Purpose:

This radio was purchased primarily to be an emergency grid-down (power failure) or off-grid (camping) radio. Some folks may not fully realize how important a source of reliable communications and lighting are in an emergency, until they do not have them. The radio is loaded with features that will be very useful when faced with a grid-down or off-grid situation.

As reviewers of similar products have stated, the receiver on most crank radios is not usually of the best quality. The tuners are generally not very sensitive and tend to drift. That's also the case with a cheaper emergency crank radio I have. After researching many different radios on Amazon, I was of the conclusion that there were probably none that had exactly the features I was looking for but also were of good quality.

Finally, I found the KA600. It actually did have everything I was looking for (many didn't have shortwave). This thing is loaded with features. The tuner, being digital also works well and eliminates the sensitivity and drift problems. The quality of the unit seams to be pretty good. I love the charge-by-USB feature, as well as the fact that I can charge a USB device by hand-cranking.

I don't think you will be disappointed with this radio after purchasing it.

I have had this radio a few weeks now - but haven't tried charging the battery via solar yet.
So I will tell you about the stuff I know about....
I DID notice that there was a warning in the manual NOT to leave the radio
in direct sunlight for too long - which is funny given the product being discussed.

It's a decent radio - sounds good for a single speaker ditty.
I mean - It's no BOSE, but it delivers the weather like you want it; clean and clear.

Here's why it gets 4 stars:

The case is really well built and feels solid - not like a cheap toy.
The radio gets good reception on local stations and the weather stations.
I like the scanning feature for the SW a lot. It saves a lot of time.
The extra stuff like the thermostat and lights actually work well and the RDS display is nice.
The flashlight is bright enough to really annoy my wife while she is seriously playing her MMORPG.
The radio has a groovy handle on it you will never use but it looks James Bond cool just the same.
They sent some earbuds I wasn't expecting and I appreciate that.
The instructions are well written and in plain English.

Here's why it don't get 5 stars:

I think if you were stupid and didn't know your own strength -
you would break the generator crank off pretty easily.
It's not built too tough so don't let the kids crank it.
The radio tuning knob on my radio has loosey goosey give in it for half a turn and then tightens up.
This doesn't affect the digital tuning any but it's weird and I don't like it.
PLUS - there's no fine tuning adjustment and that's bad.
You get the staticky stations you get and that's it.
I bought the 20' antenna extension.

First thing, let me say that I love this radio. No other radio even comes close to providing the features and quality of the KA600. I am sure that the other posters will elaborate on its pluses so I have a few suggestions in case the design engineers read these reviews.

1. This radio has 24 buttons and two knobs and is almost impossible to pick up without pushing or twisting one or more of them. To prevent this, there is a LOCK button, Great! The problem is that the lock button also locks out the POWER button so you have to UNLOCK the buttons to turn the radio off. The POWER button, which is well protected anyway, should be exempted from the LOCK button.

2. The 5 LED reading light Slide on/off switch IS NOT protected by the LOCK button and should be. It is easy to hit the switch while handling the radio. Sense the Solar panel/reading light wing is normally closed, you can not tell that the reading light is on and come back to a dead battery. There should be an indicator of some sort that the Reading Light is on. The 3 LED flash light button is NOT protected either but it is easy to see that the flash light is on.

3. The 3 LED flash light is very very weak. If you look very close, I think that it is one LED routed through three lenses. This is a very important part of an emergency device and should be MUCH stronger. The 5 LED reading light is very bright and well designed.

4. This radio will receive signals that are both horizontally and vertically polarized. Therefore the antenna on this radio should be able to lay horizontally. It is fixed in the vertical position.

5. The 13 Short Wave bands on this radio are selected by the "zero" button labeled "Meter"?
