Back in the 50's, National Radio had a campaign going where they asked
the amateurs what they wanted in a radio. After a few months, they took
all the features they had received and created the NC-300--the "Dream
Reciever". Then hey improved it and made the NC-303. That was one good
receiver. You would think that one of the major manufacturers could do
the same thing and come up with the "Dream Transceiver". 73
