I respectfully  disagree with your statement above. It seems to be waaay 
too much of a generalization. I have had several 100 watt radios in the 
same physical location with the same antenna (i.e., the *only* variable 
was the radio) and some radios experienced RFI and some did not. 
Unfortunately, some radios have more ferrite beads or bypass capacitors 
than others, others may have a "floating" audio ground (the dreaded "pin 
1" syndrome), etc, etc. I don't think you can say "it's not the radio's 
fault" in every case.
