Hi John,

It's a terrible radio., You won't like it at all. Best send it to me and 
I will discard it for you :-0

But on a more "serious" note... Go here...


This gentleman has a site devoted to the R390 and the page I just linked 
you has the side-by-side comparison...

And, after reading it you find that you "hate" your receiver, send it on 
over :-)

73, cul... Bob de k2ki
