Grundig G8 Traveler II Emergency Radio

The Grundig Traveler II Digital G8 AM/FM/LW Shortwave Radio with World Time and Auto Tuning Storage is a great radio for keeping informed of natural and man made disasters and emergencies around the globe. Larger than the Grundig Mini 400 Shortwave Radio, the Traveler II makes up for the slight increase in size by adding a boat load of extra features.

This small radio not only receives AM/FM bands but also the long distance Shortwave and Longwave bands. Because it also includes a world clock and alarm features, there is no need to travel with any other radio.

The Grundig Traveler II Digital G8 Radio includes AM/FM/MW/LW and shortwave bands which are easily located via the G8 digital tuner and digital display with digital frequency readout. Many other radios of this type rely on the old style "radio dial" which is very inaccurate, especially in a survival situation. As an added feature, the Grundig G8 Longwave and Shortwave Radio includes a world time display, sleep timer and alarm feature.

Shortwave radio was initially thought to not be a reliable form of communication but over the years, we have found it to be just he opposite. Using a principal known as skywave or propagation, shortwave radio transmissions are broadcast then, using the earth's ionosphere, are bounced back to earth over incredible distances. This means that these radios can communicate farther than VHF which relies on "line of sight" transmissions.

Shortwave transmissions actually curve with the shape of the earth which means one can literally talk, or listen, to the other side of the earth if the conditions are right. Because of this capability, shortwave radio broadcasts can not only send voice and music, but also play an integral part of long distance communication to ships and aircraft. These distances often cover remote areas out of reach of communication by wire. These are the same signals that one sees being used by amateur radio enthusiasts in the movies during disasters.

Longwave transmissions are used across the globe for things like radio transmissions which broadcast time signals, military communication, navigational beacons, amateur and experimental radio stations and more. Read more about the very interesting uses of Longwave Radio Communications on Wikipedia. Search on "longwave".
