    XT511 Base Camp 2-Way Communication Radio with Crank is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Emergency Radio I got this and two pair of GRMS radios for emergency. Haven't had an emergency yet but I tested the unit and found it to be easy use, comapact (for easy storage), lightweight and has a bevy of useful features. I especially like the fact I can re-charge my cellphone & GPS with the built in crank generator. Immediately after trying it I ordered two more base camps as x-mas gifts. I am also recommending to my neighbors and friends that they buy one. There are probably better radios out there but at this price point I think this one is hard to beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Home I did a review on YouTube of this radio and love it. Just after I did the review Midland discontinued the base camp. Viewers on my channel wrote it was back and I had to check. I am so happy this is back. I think every family should have one. You get an AM/FM radio, a NOAA weather radio with alert, a 5 watt GMRS 2 way radio, a flashlight, and a hand crank phone charger. All that plus 4 ways to power AA, Midland rechargeables, 12v, and 110v. This is an incredible product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Owned Several Years This is one fantastic GMRS radio with lots of useful features. It transmit at the maximum five watts allowed. Glad to see this available again. Works great with our handhelds as well as our 40-watt mobile GRMS units. Be certain to get a GMRS license before using.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought several I waited several years for the re-release of this radio and I'm not disappointed. The flashlight, ability to charge the radio and a phone, and the weather alert functions are especially handy. Be sure to use alkaline batteries though; the rechargeable one is okay, but alkaline batteries last several days under AM/FM, flashlight, and periodic two-way use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality This is my SECOND XT511 unit. Love the first one I purchased. Excellent build quality and design, and performs well. Got a second unit just as a spare for a SHTF situation. I am a veteran of U.S.Navy Fleet Intgerlligence, and I know well the value of good communication.This is a vital piece of my families survival equipment. GOOD GEAR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of camping equipment. I've been using the Base Camp radio for a month now. The range and performance on HI power are what we'd expect. The convenient footprint and carry handle allows for handy placement on our camp table to maintain contact with our family campers. The multiple power source feature keeps the batteries charged and operational. The AM/FM/WX broadcast receiving helps us feel secure. The radio is NOT waterproof and should be kept away from direct rain or water hazards. Great piece of camping equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great prepper radio I bought this because of the range (up to 26 miles) and because it has 3 power sources including a hand crank. Great for emergencies or just hiking or camping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great value, and an even better radio. When it arrived it was a little smaller than I expected, but that was actually a plus. It takes up less counter space. I liked the USB port on the side, if you have a power outage, you can charge your phone with it, and if the radio goes dead, it has a hand crank that will charge the battery back up. You can either use the hand Mic to transmit, or unplug it and use the PTT button on the radio itself. The range in GMRS mode is actually better than expected, so I am very pleased with the radio. >>One thing to note, to use the GMRS radio channels you do need an FCC license. Its $$for a five year issue, and there is no test.<< There are tons of features on this thing, in fact way more than I needed. I have two other radios, and wanted my wife to be able to contact us while we were in the field. So anything past that was just an extra for us, the weather radio has already come in handy with this past storm. I have used Midland gear in the past, and expect this to last a very long time.
