My first rig was an MFJ-9040. 25+ years and lots of portable setups later, it's still kicking as good as ever. It's not well advertised, but the MFJ-90XX line have optional boards for a narrow filter and an iambic keys. They are worth the price. The manual gives all the alignment procedures you'll ever have to do. It's basically just a tough ol' bird that can take a hit and keep on chugging. I say that, but I'm also impressed by some of the other rigs people have suggested....specifically the QSX. Good luck and have fun!
