I wouldn't say they were ugly,but Barbara Bush or Anne Widdecombe have more chance of winning Miss World than either of them.

I can not find where they are lined up head to head.

Thanks
If you can't find a "head to head" comparison, get the specifications for each radio under consideration and make your own. Make as many columns as you have data points and have at it.

I second what QRN is saying as a matter of fact whenever I buy anything or when Im thinking about purchasinf something new I really research it gather all the information on what Im all looking at then sit and compare facts or comments and so far so good Ive done well with decissions.

The best advice and information for me is talking to people I actually know that have run or had thje hands on experience with things and not just a bunch of people Ive never even heard of before. In ways it has its good points but we all know some people are just picky and never happy so without knowing if a review your reading is coming from one of these people its hard to say whats worth gold and whats not.
