This "HQ" Sportsmans Guide house brand is just a repackaged Grundig FR250. For about half the price. The peculiar multi option battery bay is identical. The face of the case is slightly rearranged and says HQ. Probably all made be the same Chicom factory.
Anyway, for the money it is great. Pulls in SW from all over the world. Recharges on solar or hand crank. USB in and out power etc etc. Has a resident rechargeable battery pack, and a bay for a separate set of 3 AA batteries (rechargeable per my installation).
It is smaller that I thought it would be, which is better. Very handy size.
