Thanks for all the suggestions on a receiver. What I ended up with is a 
Drake 2B and a SX-99 Traded for the Drake and 50.00 for the 99 I am finding 
out that quite a few of the local hams have this stuff sitting around. So to 
start with the line up is the Ranger,Drake and a Loudenboomer mark 2I 
restored if nothing else they should all look good setting next to each 
other!!!  Again thanks for the help and I am sure I have mant more questions 
as time goes on.

73,Bob kc0hfl
