Receiver Test Elecraft K3 vs Yaseu FT450

This is an interesting video comparing the rx signal between an Elecraft K3 and the Yaesu FT450. Value he gave for the K3 was $5,000 as he had it setup and the FT450 was about $500. As I right this, I have no idea which is which in the examples. So give it a listen and see what you think?

I will follow his YouTube channel to see if posts the results and identifies which radio is #1 and #2 in this test. His channel looks interesting... you can comment here or go the the YouTube page and place your vote and comments there.. please take our poll linked below the video for your vote!
