I'd like a better NR functionality in my Eagle.

Or instead:

Put the same effort around the Eagle's receiver (like the new RX-366 board),
and bring out a stand-alone receiver based on that.
Then they have a better receiver at only incremental cost to the users.
Then the software development they put into it can be shared with Eagle and
Orion users.

Sorry, but you guys who think there will be a receiver kit are dreaming.
Of course you are welcome to express your dreams.
