SSB radio substitute

I get by very well with just a VHF and a Degen Worldband Radio (with SSB capabilities). We were able to pick up cruiser nets and weather all over the Sea of Cortez. The radio is compact, and costs only about $85. Degen is the brand, and we bought it online from an importer in the U.S.
