VF-1 vs HF-10 - three more replies

Oops - I left out the three replies I received from this list:

The VF-1 covers 11 meters and has no built-in PS, the HG-10 doesn't cover
11 meters and has the built-in power supply.  I'm sure there are some
circuitry changes but I don't have the respective manuals with me at work.
They both drift, the HG-10 less than the VF-1. I still have my VF-1 and
still use it with my Eico 723.  I prefer the '50s styling of the VF-1.

Jeff:  No experience with the HG-10, but the VF-1 is set up to work with the
cathode keying schemes of the DX-35, DX-40 type rigs.   I'm using my VF-1
with a grid block keyed DX-60B.  Not a problem getting it to work on phone;
some more in the way of mods may be needed for CW operation.
I like the VF-1.  It is essentially the VFO circuit of a DX-60.  Mine
settles down very well after ten minutes or so.  Green frequency display
dial looks cool. VF-1 covers 160.  I think the HG-10 doesn't go down to
top band. 73 de N2CQR

HG 10 is the latter.  I have both.  The HG 10 is miles ahead.  Sparks
