How would you guys compare the Insignia NS03 to the NS01 portable HD?

Does the NS-03 decode RDS?
Is the sensitivity and selectivity as good as the NS01?

It doesn't decode RDS, and its not as selective or sensitive as the 01 in my experience (or my unit is just a fluke).

*sorry for the bad info earlier*

Hi Tom,

Your unit may be a fluke. It does decode RDBS. Side by side, my NS-HD02 is out performing the NS-HD01 by 3x. The NS-HD01 on 107.1 MHz and other frequencies, here, you hear over load from the big local FM signals (92.3, 93.3, 94.1, 95.5, 105.1). The NS-HD02 I don't hear anything like this with it. I can hear weak signals on NS-HD02 that I can't NS-HD01. It locks in HD about as good as the NS-HD01 does. The NS-HD01 decodes RDBS quicker than the 02. The 02 needs a stronger signal to see RDS on it too.
