There is a plethora of very good value portable shortwave receivers on the market, most manufactured in China. So, where do you go for more info? The Shortwave Radio Index is a great place to start and not only for those tempting bargain-basement portables, also for table-tops, SDRs, professional sets and more…
Check out their reviews page for links to sites where the radios are put under the microscope.
And if you decide to purchase a radio from the Tecsun, Kaito or Degen stable, have a look at Anon & Co out of China. They have an eBay page, accept credit cards and Paypal. Also, their shipping charges are very reasonable and occasionally offer free shipping on certain products.
