      I can second that easily, having gone through the exercise recently of
      finding out where to get started. The "Wow!!" factor is definitely there
      (whole band at a glance is easily worth the double exclamation).
      Receive-only is accessible enough, both in price and complexity. You just
      need a "Buy Now" button, wider exposure, and one-stop no-hassle first setup.
      Non-hams are likely curious enough to try it on an impulse, as well.
