From the Manufacturer

Tune_in: to the MICROLINK FR160 by Etón

For the calm of a sailboat, the curves of a bike trail, the midst of a hurricane, for baseball fans tuning into a game, a bevy of kids camping in the backyard. For everyday adventure, Etón corporation is there to keep you connected, empowered and informed all year round, 365 days a year.

Sleek and portable MICROLINK FR160 helps you define your adventure

Radios for Everyday Adventure

The Etón MICROLINK FR160 does more than keep you connected. This new spin on an Etón classic incorporates our award winning design and standard feature sets into a sleek easy to use package. It is a multifunctional, ultra-compact companion ready for any adventure.

When emergencies or outdoor adventures take you off the grid, you need a device that can fill multiple needs. The Etón MICROLINK FR160 is so compact that you can easily store in a safety kit or toss in your rucksack and take anywhere. It has a high-quality AM/FM tuner, providing you with news, entertainment and public service announcements. Not only that, but it also integrates a NOAA Weather Band receiver that brings you weather forecasts, alerts and other emergency messages--information vital to backpackers and travelers.

At only 5.25 inches, the MICROLINK FR160 literally fits in the palm of your hand. It also includes a powerful solar panel, which gives you the freedom to explore without the hassle of batteries or adapters. If that wasn’t enough, we also added a full sized USB port to easily charge any small electrical device such as an mp3 player or cell phone. You’ll always know what’s going on, thanks to the AM, FM and NOAA Weather Band tuners. With the additional flashlight and cell phone charger, you can’t go wrong with the MICROLINK as it is one versatile little device.

Ultra-portable and packed with all the features you need.


Solar/Hand Crank
Generate energy to power this sleek unit by simply setting it under the sun or with a few turns of the hand crank. Free yourself and ease your mind with self-powered radio broadcasts anytime anywhere.
AM/FM/NOAA Weather Band
Easy tuning to any band whether it’s AM (520-1710 KHz), FM (87-108 MHz) or NOAA weather band. This keeps the listener tuned in to weather forecasts, alerts and other emergency messages—information vital to backpackers and travelers.
USB phone charger
charge virtually any phone or small electrical device with this added feature.
3 built in LEDs to light your way through the dark.

The technology featured in the MICROLINK ensures that you will have everything you need whether you are hitting the beach or climbing the highest peaks. With its solar panel, hand crank, AM/FM/NOAA weather bands and flashlight, this ultra portable unit is perfect for your car, home or any outdoor activity.

Designed with your adventure in mind.

Rugged Design and Reliable Redundant Power Sources
The Etón MICROLINK FR160 is rugged for outdoor use, and is more than ready to go with no plugs or wires needed. Clever case design protects the analog controls from damage, while rubber gaskets and plugs help keep moisture out of the unit.

Having a device that sports multiple modes of communication means nothing if there is no way to power it. Etón has designed the MICROLINK FR160 with that thought in mind, and it can be powered in several ways. The built-in rechargeable battery pack can be charged from the integrated dynamo hand crank, or from an optional USB adapter. An array of water resistant, shatterproof, high performance glass encapsulated amorphous solar cells can also run the MICROLINK FR160. They are efficient enough to power the unit under direct sunlight. These multiple power supplies can also be used to recharge cell phones via USB charging cable (not included).
