Really Nice SW Receiver

Sony ICF-6700W, Handheld HF/VHF Receiver

I have owned this receiver for ten years and use it constantly to watch for DX in my office. If something shows up, I can run down to the shack and try and make a contact. This has been a very serviceable radio and has not failed me yet. It has good sensitivity and with an outdoor antenna, hears almost as good as my FT1000. It was relatively cheap on EBAY ($150) and has been trouble free since I bought it. I wouldn't call it great, but it certainly ranks a good.
