My guess is that there will be no clear winner: different radios will do better on different tests. Just on this first weak signal (no sync) test, it is apparent that listening is especially subjective, and there is a lot of disagreement.

My first instinct on digging out a weak signal is to try the sync, that's why I wouldn't consider the 909 for DXing; I'll definitely be more interested in the sync competition.

Before "sync" there was ECSS. My stock Icom 75 which has gawd awful "sync" works great using ECSS.
I've tried using ECSS on my 909x with fairly good results.

Stan, could you explain ECSS tuning on the 909X? Or point me to an tutorial? Thanks.
