For shortwave listening i use a Drake R8A, a Sony 2010, most of the time with many others that mostly sit on the shelf.

In order of preference:

JRC NRD 301A
JRC NRD 515
Drake R8
Drake R7A
Ten Tec RX340
Watkins Johnson 8718A/MFP

Then:

I have a AOR AR7030+ inherited from my Uncle and a few home brew loop antennas. Works great.

Question Gentlemen!

In all of your esteemed choices/preferences which CURRENTLY AVAILABLE portable receiver(s) is (are) the "VERY BEST"Huh

Jim-nn6ee

It's a tough call.  How much money do you want to spend?  That's the first component of any answer to your question.

People like the Sangean ATS-505, it's cheap and portable.  Of course, there are better radios out there, but it's a starting point.

Just a simple Tecsun PL-390.

As an atheist though, I'm finding there's nothing on the shortwave bands in the US that I actually want to listen to. I can pick up Radio Havana (Cuba) pretty regularly, but it is just news, so the novelty wears off quickly.

When I was in China, shortwave was GREAT. Lots of stations from China, and some from Korea, Japan, Thailand, and the Philippines.

AM is mostly sports and news here. I don't follow sports, and I can get all the news I need on FM.

FM is good and clear on most radios, but too many ads, so I got back into ham radio, just VHF for now, though I will soon get back into UHF.

Perhaps I should stop lusting after a TenTec 240 and the WJ8718 and just be happy with my NRD515 then! (and a selection of other receivers, my Kenwood R2000 bought new in 1982 still works very well.)

I haven't any use for anything else now that I own a KX3.  My only complaint is that the bandwidth in AM is a bit narrow at 4.2 KHz but this isn't much of an issue, as few broadcasters reaching the USA have a wider signal these days.  In Europe it is still possible to listen to many AM SW signals that are 9 KHz wide.

I use a Collins-designed, Hammarlund-built R-390A as the main receiver here. Also have a Barlow-Wadley XCR-30 (with F-M) and a natty little Tecsun PL-310.  Also have Chinese one that I don't use much.  I inherited that one from my late mother!
