What's a Good Ham Radio Receiver?

Episode 1753 (42:11)

Ron from Laguna Nigel, CA
C. Crane

Ron has an old Drake HAM Receiver that he'd like to repair. Or should he buy a new one? Leo says that there are a lot of radios out there for listening to HAMs. Many of them are software-defined. He can get a single sideband receiver for around $20. Eton makes some really good ones. So it's going to be more affordable to just replace it. And it really doesn't matter what brand. C-Crane is a little more expensive, but they make really good stuff.
