Kenwood TS-950SDX HF BaseThis Kenwood is my primary base station. While there are newer rigs available, I'm not sure I've operated one which has a better receiver. Likewise, I regularly get unsolicited "nice audio" reports in QSO's. I now use it with a Shure 550L. but the stock MC-60 also works well.
In recent years, this radio has developed a very strong following, and having used it for a while, understand why. More info on the eham.net review page (TS-950SDX art)
