I just read a review of the FT-5000 on Eham that I believe was a shill job. The reviewer seemed far more interested in promoting the K3 than reviewing the Yaesu radio. If you look at the specs on Sherwoods site the wide spaced dynamic range is within 1 db. That is so close that it requres sensitive test equipment to tell the difference. The specs on both radios are so good that it would be difficult to tell the difference between them in a side by side comparison even under brutal conditions. So when I see a rambling diatribe that sounds fishy, by a call that is not listed in the QRZ database, I have to think the writer has an ulterior motive because the performance difference between those two radios is so slim that there is no way this guy could make such grandios assertions of one rig over the other. Gotta be a shill. I guess the lesson here is to take Eham reviews with big grain of salt.
