I am looking for a short wave wind up radio for my friend who is going
to East Africa next year. He wants to be able to listen to the BBC
World Service which according to the bbc website transmits on between
6Mhz and 22Mhz. http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/schedules/frequencies/eastafr.htm
Solar power would be good too. What can you recommend ? The Freeplay
Summit looks like it stops at 15.6MHz...?
TIA
Stevie

Grundig makes a windup that goes to around 22 MHz, I have it in my inventory and use it
when the lights die. It also covers AM and FM... even has a little flashlite...
