Benefit of the receiver bandwidth?

Sometimes people ask what I prefer: Receivers with more bandwidth or better quality.

I did a few tests on VHF UHF with a professional receiver (1 MHz bw) against a cheap device (4 MHz bw) at the same location and with the same antenna.
Result :

  • 1 MHz high quality: 2773 decoded signals
  • 4 MHz, low cost: 5671 decoded signals
