Their are 2 large groups of reviews for the same radio. One was started later as a PEP firmware was released. However, you have both owners of new rigs posting in the older version group, and vice versa, making the separation useless. I do not think they should have separate reviews for same models because of differing software, especially since the firmware is upgradeable. Suggest to merge them.

I agree.

Having these as separate categories made sense at one time.  But that time has passed.

i've combined them and will be eliminating the multiple reviews by same reviewers.

Not sure if you can do this, but many 2nd reviews occur becuause they have to add or change their opinion. Maybe if the reviews were allow to add (not modify) to an existing review, and all to change their rating.

Phil,

Another couple of rocket scientists started a new FT-950 review. I guess they could not find the other that already existed, that had 300 reviews.
