DX as emergency radio

view full story

http://androidforums.com – I'm putting together an emergency kit at home and one thing I'm missing is an emergency radio. I'm wondering, since the DX has an FM radio app, can that be used as an emergency radio? It certainly has its advantage with the bells and whistles in it (compass, map). The key question is, the FM app is not an internet radio, but a real radio based on an FM receiver hardware, is that correct? (General)
