Brett,


I had am RME 5350 and an AF 68A for a while in the 60s.  It was certainly nice looking and I loved the tuning dial though I understanding the gear often goes bad.


I don't think I am up to building my own receiver.

Well, I never kept any equipment around long that looked ugly, so I can 
relate a bit to wanting something to match.
I have no idea what would match a ranger well and still make a good 
receiver.
I never liked most ham receivers for very long, the r390a lasted the 
longest, up till the homebrew receivers were done, then it went out the 
door.

Maybe an old RME receiver would be a good match, they were on the small 
side, no?
