I recommend the AOR AR-DV1 because, in addition to having upper/lower sideband capability, it also decodes the popular digital modes Amateurs are using right now...Please send recommendations on a shortwave receiver which has Upper/Lower AM Sideband which I may listen to Armature Radio.
Interesting unit which I been looking at. Be nice when AOR puts P25 Phase II.
Would you happen to know what SDR freeware software?
If you are talking new, not used, right now there is one tabletop traditional superhet receiver that cost under $1000, and that is the Alinco DX-R8T. The better Icom R-75 was recently discontinued, and appears to be sold out everyplace I can find, except for gougers on Ebay.Tabletop or maybe one of the black boxes.
