That's about all I can think of.
What did you do to prepare this week?
I personally have two radios. The first is a cheapo from radio shack and the other one (which I owe you guys an in depth review on) is kind of fancy. The radio shack one looks sort of like this and it works fine for me. I have used it to pick up SW and listen to music when working outside.
Right now out in the field I am using a little Sony Walkman which is working just great. It is tiny and runs for a long time on a single AAA battery. Doesn't have the best reception but it is so tiny that I will take it with me everywhere.
