Hmmmmmmmmmmm... Looks like Radio Jay Allen has a 'lil competition here. Neat read, fo' sure.      https://swling.com/blog/2021/05/gary-debocks-2021-ultralight-radio-shootout/
Prior to going to college, if you were to ask me to explain what 'At Resonance' was, I would have told you it's what accumulates at the bottom of your bong.

Looks like XHDADA D-808 is the best performing radio from the review.
I have had it now for about 2 years now, and still working fine.
ICOM R71E, Lowe HF-225, YAESU FRG100, TECSUN PL-330, PL-320, XHDATA D-109, D-808, MSi001 SDR, AOR AR3030, Sangean ATS803, ATS-909X, Antenna= Random Wire+ATU, Active Miniwhip

Interesting, in depth reviews of the various radios.

DeBock's done these Ultralight MW radio shootouts before, but I think a couple of the websites where they were published no longer exist.

An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
