Why are reviews like this one http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/8521#123136
being posted in the reviews section? Shouldn't it be in the forums? The reviewer doesn't own the item reviewed and as far as we can tell has never even used one.
This is something that has bothered me for a long time. I've read reviews that say little more than "This radio sucks". I've read others where it was stated that they played with the rig in a store for 15 minutes, (in my opinion) that does not qualify anyone to write a review. I believe some people give some radios poor reviews simply because they don't like the manufacturer for some reason. These reviews are obvious and really should be removed (again just my opinion).
