Recommendation for best portable SSB receiver?

Hi there,

I bought an SSB receiver from Amazon before sailing to the Bahamas which turned out not to receive transmissions even from a neighboring boat, it was so crap.

We are ordering some things for friends to take to us from the States and would like to get a good, working SSB.

I read on a thread here that the Kaito 1103 was recommended, but the thread was from 2008.

Just wondering if that radio is still the best or if there's a more current recommendation?

Thanks for your help!

I could hear Chris on my Kaito 1103 good enough from the south side of DR and up through the Bahamas. The fine tuning takes some getting used to.
