The drake R8 is likely a nice receiver, but may not be ham ready
with muting and so on. I would look into that.
They are expensive I think.
The NRD-525 may be good, I never had one but talk to people who have them
and they seem to like them.

The others I dont know anything about, but never had an ssb rig that I liked 
on AM,
not even the yaesu FT102.

> A Grundig Satellit 800
> A Drake R-8
> A JRC NRD-525
> A Yaesu FRG-7
