Wot no Elecraft?
Jeez, I can't believe you didn't include Heathkit in the survey!

I am sorry I should have included heathkit and elecraft. Please select other. Thanks!
I don't know what's "most popular," but my HF rigs are all Ten Tec, Kenwood and Drake.
The ones I use most are Ten Tec, and I voted that way.
Based on what "I hear" when working others, Elecraft is very popular on CW and Flex is quite popular on SSB, and I didn't see those options listed.
Icom for now, that could change.

There is SERIOUS and PLAY radios. For Absolutely the BEST performance I can get, I have to use my Icom IC-736. It is a NEVER FAIL system which is PARAMOUNT in DXing. I can't take chances with DX!
For just general playing around, then I can use my Heathkit SS-9000, which sort of works.
EVERY Ham should know how to Solder properly!

I'll stick my neck out and say that in the UK Yaesu is probably the most popular. actually voted Kenwood as my primary rig is a TS530S but I also have an elderly Yaesu/Sommerkamp FT767 and know that the majority of local hams run Yaesus for HF.
