Thing to look for is the regulation. Some generators have poor, some good. 
For ham radio purposes where load/no load cycle can be extreme (like running 
linear on CW) this is important consideration. I have Generac (Costco) and it 
is not the best (mchanical feedback). Seems that Honda or other brands are 
better (electronic feedback - regulation). 
There are also generators with flywheels, which have good mechanical inertia 
to overcome the pulsating loads fluctuation.
