I have had my Icom IC-R20 for 10 years now & always been impressed with it's reception on Airband.
Does anybody know what the equivalent of this in a base desktop model?

Thanks, John.

There isn't a direct equivalent for the IC-R20. The IC-R8500 is from the same era, but is more professionally oriented. Icom haven't really done a "consumer" desktop since the IC-R100.

Yes, the IC-R8500 is nice but looking at a few thousand dollars to buy.
Any other brand with equivalent airband receive quality?

Thanks, John.

If you listen primarily to airband, this ‘desktop’ receiver might be of interest when it’s finally released:
