Excellent addition to a classic radio.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I own two Drake TR7's and they both drift. The newer one, a TR7A has been back to the factory for a complete rehab and it still drifts.
The solution is the NRV7 remote digital VFO.

It has too many features to list here but for my use, I appreciate the DDS based VFO and the second USB port to allow freq control with logging or similar programs. In my case it is using the built in sound card with the digital program HRD. It also has a built in electronic keyer that can be controlled by the PS/2 interface for your keyboard.

I have found the NRV7 controlled TR7A to be rock steady. The unit is beautifully built and matches the TR7 rigs very well. It truly extends the life of the Drake classic for this station.

Bring your TR-7 alive!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
For all of you Drake TR-7 lovers this is a must have. I was skeptical at first because let's face it $500 is a lot of money. This baby is worth every penny - rock solid VFO, you can work split freq, RIT,electronic keyer built in and works digital modes like a dream come true. Also 20 memory channels and a 7 digit freq readout. If you're into contesting this will allow rig control with winlog32 and probably other similar programs. Contact Frank at for more information. Customer service is first class.
