You aren't kidding about the 755.  The last one I bid on, on ePay, went for
over $170!  I have a Scout 680.  Another alternative to the 755 VFO, is the
Heathkit VF-1. I use one with my Scout 680.  It has 3 VFO output ranges:
A.) 160m (good for 160 & 80/75m);  B.) 40m (good for 40, 20, 15 & 10m);  C.)
6.9 MHz (for the old 11m band).  Prices for the VF-1 are usually pretty
