Title: Wanna See the Good Stuff......Collins Radio 1978!
Post by: W1RC on May 29, 2014, 09:58:42 AM
Check out this sales brochure from 1978. (http://www.ydxc.jp/pdf/COLLINS.PDF)  This stuff was THE best. 

Notice there is no manufacturer's name on the equipment panels.  They didn't need it.  Everyone knew it was Collins even though the company had been acquired by Rockwell.  That's when the prices went through the roof and shortly thereafter they got out of the amateur radio business.

Even today this stuff sells for unbelievably big bucks.
