Midland CT-690 £49.95

Very nice price for this radio as I’ve seen it above £100 in some places recently. It’s not even Black Friday yet but Nevada has dropped the price of this radio to below £50 which I think is a steal based on others. Below we’ve the specification and some photographs. Congratulations to them on this offer.
