I just purchased a new Icom R-75 receiver and love it. I have had a few less expensive shortwave radios in the past. But I really enjoy this one. It's a little on the expensive side but the benefits are really a plus. How is everybody else doing with the R-75???? Thank you.

I bought mine back in 2008 and have used it almost daily since. Some of the most notable guys in here own one. In my opinion, it is a very reliable comm receiver with a friendly interface. It also has a pretty healthy combination of ways to refine weak signals and will out-do my r71a in some cases. With the r75, I can ride the RFgain better than with the 71a, to draw out the desired signal from the noise. I love mine too. Great job Icom did on these.
