The Sony ICF 7600GR is a good portable radio for MW and SW. It will be £100ish though. Have a look on eBay. These radios have actually gone up in price by about £40 since last year.

Some of the Tecsun models are cheaper, but lack SSB. I would go with the Sony mentioned, I have one myself.

do you want to listen to radio stations, shipping or radio amateurs ??
£70 could get you a decent 0 to 30mhz receiver with Am and SSB on it.
