Since 2005, nearly 50,000 SonSet® radios have been shipped to partner ministries around the world. Despite the proliferation of mobile phones in third-world countries, FM radio continues to communicate the gospel to individuals and entire villages alike. But could the now 12-year-old design benefit from a hardware update? The answer comes in the form of our latest upgrade.
In development for over two years, this new model of SonSet radio provides much-needed internal improvements. The radio chip itself is newer, resulting in better overall performance and longer battery life. Circuitry design and embedded software are now done in-house, along with key enhancements to simplify adding a digital media player for a future edition, now in its early stages of development.
The only visible changes to the latest upgrade are the new, simpler function buttons on the front, enabling bidirectional tuning when multiple channels are programmed – a helpful feature allowing the end user to change channels faster and more efficiently.
Multiple partner ministries have expressed the need for an unlimited number to reach thousands with the gospel. Church/volunteer involvement through both fund raising and processing is key, and are two hurdles keeping the gospel from the hands of potential listeners.
