HF rigs don't have to be really expensive, lots of nice used one generation old radios. Look for a DX-70T(H), FT-840, IC-718, etc, should fall around $250~$500. They lack the sophisticated DSP of the current radios, but don't give up much at all otherwise and have pretty darn good filters to boot. Happy hunting!
