No, I don't mean it cries at the movies!!!  I've read a bunch about
the (now corrected) scan problem, and a few comments re: poor antenna
function on 6M, but I want to be sure the receiver performance on BC
and SW bands is at least passable.  Any comments???

so far it's much better on AM & fm than the vx1 that I have.  I also get the
feeling it will receive better on 155 & 463 areas...at least stock antennae
to stock antennae.  I was pulling much more out of my local security force
on 154 than I do on the vx1r.

can't comment on 50 mhz yet, nothing around here on.  SW seems to be decent.
800 seems good too.

So far a winner!
