Radio Shack DX200, switched into a G5RV. I paid $30.00 for for the receiver in mint condition and $39.00 for the antenna many years ago.  Grin

Not a ham. I am an avid SWL/HF utility hobby. At the listening desk Icom r71a with EEB mods (main use) and '54 Hallicrafters sx-88. Icom r75 at the bedside. All run on a PAR EF-SWL with 100' wire up 40'Smiley

I have not seen the Elecraft K3 mentioned- maybe I missed it. But it has the best AM sync detector I have ever used- even better than the Lowe receivers. In combination with the P3 panadapter, it's a killer receiver. Excellent roofing filters, industry best close in dynamic range, excellent IP3. DSP filtering, NR etc. It's only limitation I see is that  the low end is currently 490KHz, so I use a Palomar LF converter for NDB, LowFers etc.

My Main receiver is a Collins 75S-3C followed by a National NC-57B( mostly for BCB ), then the R390A/URR. All three have there place. Still lots to listen to out there if you know were to listen.

I use a couple digital portables, including a Realistic DX-390, which often seems to be the easiest to use and the quickest to tune.  There are other radios with more sophisticated features but I'd rather spend my time SWLing than fighting with the radio.

For MW I favor a Sony SRF-42 (used with an external loop).  The SRF-42 is stereo, and the stereo helps to separate stations on a channel.  Sounds great through the headphones, also...

Three cheers for the FRG-7.  I have lots of higher spec receivers, but the Frog-7 is still my SWL daily driver.

I have to agree with you, K6LO.  I have an FRG-7 that was in the closet for a while, and I've recently pulled it out of the box and cleaned it up, and have been getting used to it again, mainly DXing medium wave.  It pulls the signals out of the mud well, and it has a rich, rich sound.

I forgot how good a receiver it was.

I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has a Bearcat DX-1000 or a Uniden CR-2021. I have both, and both are on the fritz. The Uniden was my workhorse for several years in the 1980s until it developed a problem where it wouldn't power up at all, and then would months or years later.

     FRG-7700 and a Sony ICF-7600D usually hooked up to a unused dipole or any convenient long wire.

I am a CW-only ham, but assume this question refers to international broadcast listening...   I have found my Drake R8 with an external speaker to be the best.  Ride the RF gain, move the passband off center, turn the tone control all the way down, and enjoy some great music from Voice of Greece or the BBC Africa Service.... 

For travel, the Sony ICF-SW07 is great ( http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/portable/0007.html ) but unfortunately is not in production. 

I also fire up my old National NC-60 Special all-American five tube rig from time-to-time... the glow from those tubes is priceless!

I lived my teen years with a Hallicrafters SX-25 Super Defiant. Tubes galore....it would heat my bedroom in the winter. :-)
