7 miles isnt much for AM. I can easily receive 920 KFRY from portage la prairie here in winnipeg in my
basement with a small 2xAA powered 4 transistor radio. (approx 50+ Km or 30+ miles)
I almost considered buying that rig, but after reading reviews, and then the fact that the G3 went on sale
for near 50% off, i opted for that. The SSB feature on the G3 that the 450 doesn't have is nice if your
interested in copying any of the different amateur modes.
G3 is also a hit and miss radio from what I have heard, I guess I was a lucky one. Never had a problem
with mine. Thing is very sensitive, even with the telescoping whip. If I plug in my loop or
a longwire, its sensitivity is awesome.
