Stuart, I read through the list, but it has been so many years since I 
did any engineering work, I was not familiar with a lot of the 

One faction on this list is more competitive than I am, and so they are 
largely interested in how a given radio compares to other high-end 
contest oriented radios, both from Ten Tec and others like Elecraft. 
But, I am interested in replacing or at least assisting my 20+ year old 
Corsair II with something newer and that is still easy to use without 
having to do countless adjustments through myriad levels of menus.  I 
tried out an Eagle there at the factory, and was mightily impressed. 
But, I have not had the time to compare one extensively with other Ten 
Tec radios.  I thought that the beta testers here on the list might be 
able to tell me.  And, I did get some very useful info from the request.

As it is, I got the Corsair II and the VFO back from Ten Tec this 
afternoon, and after thawing them out, have had a great time making 

What impressed me about the Sherwood list was how well the Collins and 
Drake receivers compare even now to the much more modern units.
