I'd vote for the Drake 2B. I've had mine for over 35 years. They can be
bought for under $200

Within the following parameters which would you list as
the best Boatanchor receiver for SSB?

1.  Medium-to-compact (less than 14" w, 10" h, 12" d).

2.  All-tube.

3.  Preferably double-conversion.

4.  Good selectivity.

5.  160-10m coverage (Ham bands only OK).

6.  Under $200. in good cosmetic and operating condition.

I have a Pierson KE-93 w/AC & DC power supplies but even
	with a preselector I am not sure it can be coaxed
	into being a 'good" SSB receiver.



Thanks! & 73, KD4E
