From what I recall, there were several production changes. It is
important to establish which version is in your hands first (serial
number) . Did you look inside the receiver to know for sure which
modules are installed ?

True - but if you like utes, ECSS is probably not terribly important
(that's like S-AM).  The bandwidth control would probably be a better
choice.

The ECSS unit is a particularly poor one. I makes a loud howl when it loses
sync, which it does often.

Thinking of the NRD series I see that Universal has a 515 up for sale:

They look way better than they perform.

Pricey. But, I do recall buying a minty 515, with the memory unit, and I think a
matching speaker for around $850 or so back in the early 90's or so, via the Ham
Trader Yellow Sheets. I almost recall it coming with something else, perhaps some
add on box that added sync or something, it might have been some kinda Kiwa box.
The add on box was black, and had a few knobs on it. Maybe it was a Sherwood thing.

At any rate, I considered it a steal at the time, but, I never cared for NRD audio,
though they were certainly pretty.

Sold it all at a nice profit.

Especially since I'm very familiar with this exact radio. A friend of
mine owned it for over 20 years. I would love to grab it up, but not for
that much! It is an awesome reciever. I wonder how it wound up at
Universal...

I beg to differ. That one in particular was fanastic on SSB and RTTY
modes.

Isurely did.
The ECSS is empty as well as the BWC, both options.
Serial: 596 XX

That's what I just read.   Apparently even moving the bandpass unlocks it.)
Sure don't need or want that howling.

The audio was a bit fuzzy/bassy/muffled 'till I did the Kiwa audio upgrade.
Sounds ok to me now.

I think the the Bandwidth option is the best way to go.
Can't stand the howling when they unlock and they do unlock pretty easy.

True - but if you like utes, ECSS is probably not terribly important
(that's like S-AM).  The bandwidth control would probably be a better
choice.
