To each their own, Wayne.  My purpose was to see how MANY of the fine
receivers there were out there, not to start a war over which version of the 
R-274 worked better; Hallicrafter or Hammarlund.

I'm more interested in the History of the thing.  What happened in four years
that caused there to be a "D" model (like what I have)?  What were the changes
from the A, B, and C models?  Was the SP-600 one of the letter designators?

Googling for such information was rather lacking in results.

73 = Best Regards,
