The NCG 10/160M was made in Japan by Matsushita (Panasonic) and was marketed as the National RJX-810D there. In the US National Communications Group (NCG) imported a limited number of these rigs and sold them under their own name. RF-power can be adjusted to very low levels, as low as 300mW, excellent for QRP operations. This rig is the same as the National / Panasonic RJX-810D.
