Hi Nick,

Just like my motto says: " Indecision represents the ultimate in
flexibility"!! 
Sorry that I missed you and John at Richmond this year, my schedule
confounded me again.

How about a National NC-300 or 303? - great vintage looks, excellent
tuning 
feel, very good performance on AM, CW, and SSB.
Or a Hallicrafters SX-101? also very handsome and a good performer
Or if you want something that isn't 19" wide and 75 lbs, but is about
the 
same width as the Ranger, a Drake 2B.

OK, that didn't make your choices easier, did it? But I think these
three 
are much better rcvrs than your list below. I like the HQ-170 for SSB
but 
never enjoyed it for AM.

I couldn't make up my mind either - here's what I ended up with for my
main 
vintage operating position -
