No such thing.
Every set up is unique but different.
I'd rate any good HF radio (in my opinion Yaesu) with either an IMAX2K up 40 plus feet, ballun and ground in good earth. Mine's direct into a water course!! ..or
a wire with ATU. Make my own antennas these days.
CB and SSB - 555 and zero's then....probably good export like Stryker 955HP, for a vintage then I'd rate (and collect) Ham International (best money could buy hands down) and go for a concorde 3 ...I have one converted to 10m. Also have many more vintage..and stil the best all cybernet boarded. Antenna ...I'd say if you can find one an original avanti sigma 4 (not the copies around now ) or a serio 827. However both won't tune well beyond 10m without ATU.

Hope that helps.

there's some good radio's and antennas out there ,cobra 148 rangers presidents strykers ect , some high power radios now , I've got a galaxy 95t2 150w ssb works great ,had from new but hard to find now , antennas wise been using a Imax for yrs can't fault it , but now I'm also using a vortex quasar mk2 its like the sigma 4 but built like a tank £400 New brilliant antenna, vortex make some top class antennas and the build quality can't be beat, also there's beams like the sirio if you want to use a rotator but legally speaking only hams can use beams but there is a cobweb antenna that doesn't require a rotator, hope this helps a bit

Not illegal to receive ;)
Plenty are talking worldwide on 27.555 usb,
Some are too far up their own @rse to admit it,
Many happen to know otherwise dx-ing test free,
Showing a complete lack of respect for the law.
