I am hoping to get in touch with a ham operator for advice.  Back in the days of my youth, there was a “portable” radio called the transoceanic that had a variety of short wave frequency ranges that would pick up the BBC in various countries, as well as Voice of America and private radio operators.  Coupled with a world map, it was a great way to learn geography.

I would like to pick up a modern version of the transoceanic for my grand son.  But I have no name brand recognition in this area.  I am assuming that a ham receiver would have the necessary frequency ranges.  Any suggestions would be welcomed.
