NC-270 good receiver

National Company NC-270, Desktop HF/VHF Receiver

I had an NC-270 back in 1965 and loved the nice big easy to read slide rule dial. Personally I find the straight dial easier to read than the curved ones. The selectivity is good for the way I use a radio though I wouldn't go into a deep pile up with this rig. Fun to use and own, I had one in 1965 and just got another one in 2011. Great radio!
