Main in the House is a Drake SW4A.  In the shop I have a few Hallicrafters but really enjoy the Hammarlund HQ140.
For traveling and hotels I got a Grundig G8.  I have found it doesn't work to well in most hotels.

I use the Tecsun PL 660 that has DSP, and cost around $100.00, just plug in a antenna and listen to LW,MW, SW and air band.

+ 1 on the Tecsun PL-660, it's a lot of radio or the money. I also like the Sangean 803 & the Radio Shack version but used ones are getting expensive these days.

Ditto! on the Sangean 803 & Radio Shack version. Great portable! Wink

Currently use a Kenwood R-1000, also have a DX-394 on standby, and soon will be getting my latest acquisition, an ICOM R-71A...plus sundry other portables.

Icom R7100 (VHF/UHF)
Uniden BCD998T (Digital Trunking)
Drake R8A (LW)
Icom 756Pro (Everything else)
Also have a Kiwa R75, but mine is not as good as the R8A for LW or the 756Pro's DSP filtering for BCB/HF

I do some shortwave listening from time to time. For now, I am using my IC-746pro, but I'd like to get a dedicated spot for either my HQ-129X or my Super Pro.

Some of my favorite stations I used to listen to have long ago gone off the air in favor if internet "broadcasting".
