Thanks... I'll go look at that.

There is a specific objective sensitivity measurement that can be made
for radio receivers.  It's not typically published for consumer grade
electronics.  For mass market electronics that are all based on the
same design, or a very small number of designs, there may be no
difference in sensitivity.

But if there is one receiver that performs better than others, I
figured folks on this list would know that.  So I figured I'd ask.
