Solid Radio October 19, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from South Jersey  
Another great radio from Standard Horizon at a great price from Hodges. Battery is still full after being used for a couple hours over the last month or two. Looks to be a radio that'll be around for a while!

Great handheld!! August 30, 2011
Reviewer: T. Campbell from Boston  
Hodges had this handheld in stock, ready to ship, and at the LOWEST PRICE around!! The radio works awesome! Dropped it once into the water (whoops!) and it floated like it should have and still worked.

If you are looking for a solid handheld unit. This one is it!
