This is a subject that has been beaten to death. I'll add my 2 cents -
I own the Sony 7600G. I considered the YB400 also. I bought my Sony 6
months ago and don't regret it. They are both great, solid radios. You
would be happy with either one. The reason I bought the Sony was that I
use rechargable batteries in it and it takes 4, the YB takes 6, and most
rechargers hold 4 batteries at a time. Obviously not a great way to
pick a performance radio, but they are too close to call between them.
Now, if the YB held 4 batteries, I don't know which one I would have
picked, since they are just so close, it's a matter of personal
