Great for base camp to monitor other party members
Built-in 22-channel GMRS two-way radio
AM/FM/NOAA weather radio receiver
Clock with alarm
Crank power for emergency situations
Communicate with members of your party in the field, monitor news and weather information, keep track of time and light your way in the dark. This single unit does it all. It's an AM/FM/NOAA weather radio receiver, and the emergency alert feature lets you know when severe weather and other emergency situations develop in your area. The alarm clock displays accurate time, and an integrated three-LED flashlight will come in handy around camp after dark. What's more, this unit has a built-in 22-channel GMRS radio with 121 privacy codes, channel scan, auto squelch, high/low power settings, and the ability to switch between PTT to VOX transmitting options. Channel scan picks up any emergency messages from outdoorsmen using a GMRS radio nearby. Don't worry about losing power. The XT511 comes with a rechargeable NiMH battery pack and it can be operated or recharged using the included 120-volt outlet charger, an included 12-volt charging adapter, or use the crank power option to eliminate the need for batteries. A charge indicator in the backlit LCD screen shows current charge level. This radio's battery pack is identical to the AVP7 battery pack used in many Midland and Cabela's brand GMRS radios, so the XT511 could also be used to recharge those. The XT511 comes with a handheld microphone and has a USB port for recharging newer cell phones, iPODs and similar electronic devices. Convenient carry handle on the water-resistant plastic case.
