What HF radio should I buy?
How many times have you heard this question - what HF radio should I buy? Here's a link to a paper that tries to answer that question in a statistical/mathematical way(!?). It's an interesting paper by K4FMH but I am skeptical - for two reasons. It hardly mentions the IC-7300, a fan favorite, and it was published before data was available on the FTdx-10. Interesting. Buyer beware.

Dave that is an interesting perspective on how to buy a rig analytically. I do see that is misses the mark in some areas though. I like to think of a radio more like a pair of good shoes. The shoes do not have to be expensive, nor do they have to be the best in analytics.... but they must feel good on my feet! I can't stress enough for those in the market to find a way to get a loaner or go to a shack that has radio(s) you take in interest in and spin the dials and take it for a test run!
Thanks for posting this info... a great place to get some analytics!
