To me, from a newcomer's perspective, this is a serious issue. Picture someone picking up a radio for the first time (never had one of these in their
lives), and they come across this table from the link in the wiki. How are they supposed to understand all that without some sort of legend?

As a certain pointed eared Starfleet officer would say, that's illogical. There's nothing to suggest floating a mouse over anything for a description. Perhaps
that should be added to the sentence that introduces this table as an explanation. It would be better than nothing.

I was thinking of pointing to this table in the individual radio articles so a newcomer could find out the basics about the radio - including whether this radio supported
clone, live or file (what is that?) processing for updating their radio's memories. And since it's updated with each build, maintenance would be a snap. Now
I'm not so sure that's the best way to go here.
