I think also most of the Yaesu VX-series handhelds, the
Kenwood TH-F6A, and others include AM receive on HF.

I think the TH-F6A may also include CW/SSB rx on HF.

Also, I believe that the new yaesu FT1DR handheld covers
504 kHz - 999.900 MHz (AM) plus 108 MHz - 580 MHz (FM)
and digital mode.

Lots of choices out there for a daily use 2/440 handheld
also good for RFI-chasing.
