[pct-l] The Thru Hiker Radio

I'm familiar with the Sony models. They ain't "uber-light" 
in my book, and reception isn't very good. Bulky as sin too.

Someone once recommended Sangean for better reception 
(possibly at the cost of durability). But these are also in 
the 3 oz range.

If they can build AM/FM/MP3 into a pair of earbuds these 
days, then can uber-weatherband be so far fetched?

Maybe Skymall will come through one of these days... 
Meanwhile, I've got my eye on the Hammacher Schlemmer 
hydrofoil water bike. Human powered - 17mph!
