The 300 IS a great receiver but it is ham bands only so if you want to do 
any swl listening it may not be what you want.  I had one and for ham bands 
it is real good and works well on ssb also.  I did not like it as well on am 
as the sx 110 I am restoring now and the Hallicrafters is general coverage 
with bandspread for 80,40 20, 15, and 10 meter ham bands but not as good on 
ssb as the national..  there are lots of good tube sets out there you need 
to decide if you want to use it only on ham or do you want to listen to 
international broadcasts also?  My favorite receiver for swl and ham has 
been a Hammurland HQ180 but they are not cheap when you can find one.
