The CCRadio-2 is a premium AM/FM/Weather/2-Meter Ham Band Radio designed for emergencies and long range AM reception. Its boost in AM performance comes from our patented Twin-Coil Ferrite® AM Antenna, and other improvements. Thanks to audio that's optimized for voice clarity AM stations continue to sound just right. After you select a station, the CCRadio-2 evaluates the signal for several seconds and then locks in for the highest signal possible.

The display can be adjusted to a super bright level and is sharp and easy to use. It features a full backlight with three levels of brightness and an "off" setting. The display shows the station you are on and then automatically changes to the clock after 15 seconds.

The Weather Band, which has a very loud alert, can keep you informed of any NOAA alerts. The 2-Meter Ham band may make the CCRadio-2 a life saver during an emergency. Two Meter Ham operators are early on the scene of an emergency and they donate their time while handling perhaps 90% of emergency coordination efforts. The CCRadio-2 makes it easy to hear the vital information they share by acting like a simple radio scanner, searching five progammable memories for Ham operator communications. The sensitivity (squelch) can be adjusted for best results. More information about the 2-Meter Ham Band can be found at

Features include: 5 memories per band (AM, FM, Weather and 2-Meter bands), adjustable display light, adjustable bass and treble, clock alarm, sleep timer, auto scan, stereo headphone jack, line-input jack, and line-output jack. Runs on included AC power cord or four (optional) "D" batteries.

Weight: 4 lbs (without optional batteries) Size: 11" W x 6.5" H x 4" D.

Excellent radio reception for both am and fm radio. I would advise new purchasers to buy the cover, since the handle is not a fold up type, you must grip it carefully when moving it around.

Wonderful product! I bought this radio for my wife for Christmas. We have dreadful radio reception and when we wanted to listen to the radio at night, we had to move it onto the bed, just to get any signal at all! When she opened the CCRadio 2, we immediately got wonderful reception! We can now listen to Coast to Coast radio with perfect sound. We had forgotten what it was like to listen to radio with good reception in our home. Thank you! The shipping was excellent; it came within 3 days of ordering. I will order other radios in future, and I am looking at your WiFi radio for my bedside radio! Thank you again!Michael B.

Purchased this for my father for Christmas. Everywhere he went for a month it was right by his side. He absolutely loved it. He was working out in the machine shed this winter and again had it with him. He sat it on top of the heat exchanger on our wood stove and then proceeded to light a fire. Unfortunately he forgot where he sat the radio and continued to enjoy his radio program while he worked on the tractor. After about 15 min he smelled something burning. He sniffed around the shed until he saw it. There was the radio still on top of the now super hot heat exchanger. The radio continued to play even though the backside of the radio had completely melted down. He had to scoop it off of the heat exhcanger. The darn thing still works!!!!!! I'm not proposing that it is fire proof just that it is very very well made and continues to play even while melting. Thanks for a great product, not much around today that is made this well. Jason

Best radio I've ever owned. The reception for all the bands: AM/FM/Weather/Short Wave, are exceptionally good. The sound quality is amazing, great tone for AM/weather/shortwave. Music sounds crisp and clear on the FM band. Very nice looking unit. Easy to learn to use. Lots of presets for your favorite stations. Excellent product CCrane!!!

My CCRadio-2 with the now defunct TV band was much better with AM and FM reception. The Ham band is practically useless. I like the auto scan. However, this "upgrade" is not as good as the first CC I owned.

Love this critter! Weather, great AM reception and rich, bassy, great-sounding AM and FM. I haven't troubled myself much with the Ham band but it picks up Jones and a few others with factory presets, a good thing because I wouldn't know where to start to find working freqs. It goes a long way with a set of batteries if you remember to turn off the weather alerts and LCD backlight. It's a heavy beast with the four D-cells, but when you use and hear it, you'll know why that weight is there. This box locks freqs without the drifting common to regular radios, even in AM. Gripes? Minor. I wish it had a fold-out handle, but the case-incorporated grip is ok, just. The antenna is difficult to pull up from fully stowed, the lack of normal clipped horizontal antenna storage a consequence of the lack of a fold out handle, I suspect. Also, the power button and backlight button are VERY easy to to inadvertantly turn on, but all these are minor gripes, a little care is all you need on the switches if it's on the batteries. And if it's on wall-power, who cares anyway? This is a fabulous multi-band digital receiver, it sounds great and I wouldn't trade it for ten of another make.

AM reception is very disappointing. Also I purchased this radio thinking it was made in the USA but I had the box sitting on a table and I walked by and noticed it said "Made in China" on the side by the bar-code!

Great workhorse radio. My favorite radio. The features are well thought-out, and the AM reception is superb. I like playing around with the HAM radio frequencies. The sound quality is also superb. Although a few extra presets would be great, that's my only wish, and it's minor.

I have had at least five AM radios within the past 6 years in an attempt to gain better AM reception in my area, and never had much luck, until now! My CC Radio 2 arrived on August 11, 2011.What a great Radio!!! I highly recommend this radio. The reception is fantastic! It has all the features you could ever want on a portable radio. This radio does everything they said it would, and is very well constructed.The FM, short wave and weather radio is fantastic! If you are considering purchasing this radio.....DO IT. You won't be sorry.Rick G.......Savannah, Ga.

This radio is awesome for what it is designed for, listening to AM radio. One improvement would be to add built in rechargeable batteries. D batteries are kind of old hat. The battery compartment is poorly designed as well.

This is a great radio except the "2 meter band". My radio has never picked up a station on 2 m and I use it in the Chicago area. I do not see a way of hooking up an external antenna to the 2 m band. I have an Amatuer Extra license so I like to think I am not using it improperly.

Impressive, Well Made Radio.My two previous clock radios were purchased from a well respected chain but over the years they dropped most of their branded radios from the shelves despite their moniker. The CC Radio 2 (CCR2) has a level of sophistication and quality feel well above my previous purchases and time will tell if it was worth the expense from a quality standpoint. The controls and functions of the CCR2 were simple to learn and easy to get used too in fact I can find all the necessary controls at night and in complete darkness just by putting my hand on and navigating around the radio. The three stage display back light is a nice touch although the display could be larger and the black segments of the numerals for the clock and frequency could be larger (fatter) in order to be more visible at a distance of 6 ft to 10 ft away especially in daylight. This radio can pull in stations that were previously unavailable before and the stations’ I was getting are clearer now but my location and region are not conducive to quality AM reception to begin with. I am however able to program, into the push-button tuning, frequencies that play my desired broadcast so if one is poor I can try the other. The CCR2 also helped to identify that my Netbook not my 2.4 GHz phone has been a long standing source of noise in my AM listening. I grounded the radio from the AM antenna ground connector to a receptacle plate’s screw, in theory this should ground the radio and isolate more of the noise, and this eliminated some but not all of the interference and not the noise from the computer. The CCR2 also cuts through atmospheric noise better than any radio I have ever owned, a distant thunderstorm no longer entirely ruins my listening experience and the weather band is clear as a bell so local emergency broadcasts are no longer a scratchy noisy mess. Finally I have been able to find one local HAM broadcast in my area on two separate frequencies. I find their subject matter occasionally objectionable, due to my background and education, but it is clear as a bell when they are broadcasting.Great Radio! Yes, I would recommend CCrane to my friends (if they could ever stop watching TV). Those WiFi radios interest me also but unfortunately I have and, because of this, I am out in the cold with a lot of things like VOIP and streaming media broadcasts. Plus they throw in a double whammy with their "fair access policy" and expensive service (food for thought with respect to CCrane's WiFi radio sales: Antitrust laws, fair broad-band access in rural locations, etc.)

I bought my first CCRadio-Plus when C.Crane first offered them, I now own four. The radio is well-built, the controls are uncluttered and easy to understand, and the AM reception in particular is outstanding, I live in the Antelope Valley about 90 miles north of L.A. and I can receive all my favorite L.A. radio stations. Thanks C.Crane for yet another quality product!

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
