Re: which one is ultralight
I must say that the "entertainment-grade radio" criterion in the definitions seems fuzzy. Here's what it says:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
"It is an entertainment-grade radio, as opposed to enthusiast's radio. As such, it will usually not have AM synchronous detection, SSB clarification or other specialized features."
So when does "usually" not apply, and what does "specialized features" mean? I would argue that the Tecsun PL-380 is not an "entertainment-grade radio" because of specialized features like selectable bandwidth and the display of signal to noise ratio.
My personal opinion is that the < $100 criterion is an objective one and serves the purpose of defining "entertainment-grade". I mean, just how many radios would you include by dropping the "entertainment-grade" section of the definition entirely?
I also note that comments on this tread say that the <$100 price criterion is the price at the time of "introduction". The Definition says at time of "approval".
