I wanted opinions in case I'm missing some benefits of one radio over the other to help me decide. Sometimes It's not as simple as reading through specifications and making decisions by that. And although I know some enthusiasts would choose the more popular, what I'm looking for is simply benefits over the other (and other options) to make my decision.
My budget is +/- a little $ around the specified radios. My wants and needs are the basic's of each specified radio (50w, dual band) Any other wants or needs or how it will be rigged is either not relevant to me, or, I already have it taken care of. So, does anyone have any thoughts of these radios having benefits over each other aside from them all being duel band and 50w? (UV-50x3 is Tri Band, 9800 and 8900 Quad)
