Thanks John. I like the panel color and the receivers do go well together. But the RR-3 band/frequency range knob color is better suited to the civilian R-7 since the markings on the translucent plate don't stand out well against the tan/cream color background. I didn't realize the default frequency setting for the ranges is different on the RR-3 (from my R-7) until I started using it since the knob markings don't stand out like they do on the R-7/TR-7 front panel. With the RR-3 you have to use the up/down buttons to select an amateur band.
The Aux-7 board is standard in the RR-3 and came with modules and individual crystals for 500 Khz. and 2.182 Mhz. Drake literature notes that this board provides an easy method of having the receiver come up on a specific band at power up but I think the up/down range buttons will suffice for my needs
The only thing it needs is a SL-300 or SL-500 CW filter since it came with the SSB filter and I already had a spare SL-6000 AM filter.
