My first shortwave set was a Russian Vega portable.  It had about 8 shortwave bands and a terrible pointer type frequency readout that was actually marked in Metres.  At that time Radio Moscow only read out their frequencies in metres anyway!  I heard my letter read on Moscow Mailbag when I was about 10 years old, what a thrill!   My first 'real' radio was the Yaesu FRG-7, which was great: I could get the frequency to within about 10Khz then!  I owned several receivers over the years, and always regretted selling the old 'Frog', but last Christmas my XYL managed to get me and old FRG-7!, so I'm back to where I started!
