Moab, thank you for posting this. It looks like it will be extraordinarily useful to me. I briefly checked out that link yesterday but will study it more closely this weekend. I've accumulated a number of shortwave radios and a Baofeng HT over the years but with no real insight as to what would be truly useful.  I can tell a lot of thought went into those winning entries that'll help me rationalize my comm preps. Much appreciated 👍!

I know. I felt the same way. Its like the ultimate vetted review. And that site seems to be a top level radio hobby one.
