Today on Amazon, the Grundig G4000A is listed for just below US$80. This is a slightly updated version of the Grundig YB-400PE. Also, the excellent Sony ICF SW7600GR is listed at just below US$125. I also included Passport to World Band Radio below because it is a widely-read book among shortwave enthusiasts (and the article looks better with three items).
[Edit: The G4000A price has returned to just under US$100.]
