{Collins} Collins & Eldico Clone Question

Some comments on another reflector got me thinking enough to ask here.  =
According to Jay Millers Collins book, someone at Collins was asleep at =
the switch one time and missed bidding on a big military contract to =
supply radio's to the MARS stations across Viet Nam. =20
Eldico did bid and won, thus giving them access to the S-line design so =
they could clone it.

Did Eldico ever try to sell their S-line clone to the hams?  Or was it =
strictly limited to military sales only?
