    Hello,

    It depends on what you want to do with it.
    Here is one that can receive all frequencies between 40 kHz and 3150 MHz.
    http://www.cqdx.ru/blog/2010/12/24/new-aor-ar-5001dx-wide-band-receiver/

    It will cost you about 3500 Euro.

    The wiki has a page for shortwave listening:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortwave_listening
    And one for shortwave radio:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortwave_radio
    And one about amateur radio:

    You can also listen online using the WebSDR radio of the university of Twente:
    http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
    You can stretch the view using the mouse wheel and shift the view using the left mouse button in the waterfall.

    Here is also a list with some more WebSDR sites:

    Many of the scanners have full band coverage, and add scanner benefits of being able to automatically find signals for you.
