Hi Mark,
Godd on ya, mate, and yes I have one of each NC-183D,
and the NC-303, I found them both to be comparable in
sensitivity and ease of operation. I am not particularly trying
to sell either, The 183D is paired up with my RCA BTA-1M
and the NC-303 is paired up with the 6N2 converter, and the
6N2 transmitter driving separate 6 meter amp, pair of 4-125,
and a 2 meter amp pair of 4CX250B. I modulate the 6N2
transmitter with all the components from a DX-100.

On 160 meters I like the selectivity of the NC-183D, gets
rid of the QRM from encroaching SSB there. As for the 6N2
stuff the converter works, but I find the Ameco converters
work better. the usual caveaut applies.

How you doing up there?
