AOR AR5000A (+3 optioned) LF, MF, HF, VHF, UHF (Basically no gaps to 3 GHz), I’ve found this to be an excellent all mode comms Receiver.
AOR AR8000 Hand Held Scanning receiver, AM, SSB (of sorts), FM, FMW coverage to 1.95 GHz (with lots of birdies).
McKay Dymek DR 22, HF Communications Receiver, 75 kHz to 29.7 MHz, PLL Digital readout (circu 1978).
No restoration required other than a good clean-up, did replace electrolytics as a matter of practice.
BARLOW WADLEY XCR-30 Mk2, MF-HF, AM-SSB Portable communications receiver (circa 1972).
Restored to almost former glory from a rather sad state.
DRAKE SSR-1, MF-HF, AM-SSB Communications receiver (circu 1975), still in good order (small marks only).
EDDYSTONE Model EC10 Mk2, MF-HF Communications receiver (circu 1971) with BFO for CW/SSB.
Carefully retuned with a slight modification to improve the original lack of BFO carrier level.
