The C Crane CCRadio2 has earned an outstanding reputation as a quality radio specifically designed for talk radio, news, sports and weather. The CC Radio 2 is the worthy successor to the original CC Radio and CC Radio Plus. Audio has been specifically tailored for the human voice. The new clearer backlit LCD display has three levels of brightness plus an "off" setting. Separate Bass and Treble controls, combined with the 5 inch speaker, provide a full sound. A mini headphone jack (3.5 mm) is also provided.
This digital radio tunes AM from 520 to 1710 kHz, FM from 87.5 to 108 MHz, NOAA weather from 162.400 to 162.550 MHz and even the 2 Meter Amateur Radio band (144-148 MHz)! The 2-Meter Ham band may make the CCRadio-2 a life saver during an emergency like hurricane Katrina. 2-Meter Ham operators are early on the scene and they donate their time while handling perhaps 90% of the emergency coordination efforts. The CCRadio-2 can act like a simple radio scanner and search the five memories for ham operator communications. Separate Bass and Treble combined with the 5 inch speaker provide excellent fidelity. Fine tuning on the AM band is to 1 kHz. Operation of the radio is as simple as possible. Five stations can be stored into memory on each band. The CC Radio also has a clock alarm feature with sleep function.
With the built-in weather band you can listen to the NOAA weather station for current local conditions. A special Weather Alert feature sounds an alarm to notify you of weather emergency updates. This feature even works while you are listening to AM or FM. This alarm will even sound at night and wake you up if there is an alert. In fact there are 3 weather alert functions that you can select (flashing light & no alarm, or NOAA audio or flashing light & siren). This radio operates with the supplied AC cord or may be operated for up to 250 hours on four D cells (not supplied). There is a carry handle lip built into the rear panel. All of the radios functions are available via logically positioned controls and buttons. The LCD is gently backlit at all times when the radio is plugged into AC. When on batteries you may momentarily illuminate the LCD with the touch of a button.
Other features include: programmable timer, Audio In/Out jacks, signal strength meter, battery strength meter, audible band indicator, FM stereo through headphones, external AM antenna terminal for mobile use or brick and metal buildings. You can tune in one station and then automatically switch to another station at anytime you specify. Weather alert feature can be programmed to turn on the radio to the weather station. This radio is optimized to work with C Crane VersaCorder.
This radio is available in a black mica case (left) or a titanium colored case (right).
