Looking back it was rubbish! On 10m the whole band was about 0.5 inches on the dial. On MW and bands up to about 6MHz it was OK. It had a low IF and germanium transistors (OC171s). It was mechanically a nice radio, but almost all modern receivers are a lot better.
Prices on the second hand market for EC10s are very high. Even though a far from great radio they are still sought after receivers.
