Was looking at a Japanese blog about communications gear and ran across this sort-of copy of the Hammarlund SP-600 made from 1950-1970 by NEC. Called the RAP-261 Receiver 53L Type 2, it seems to be a clone of the SP-600 but with some of the parts reversed, i.e. made right-to-left! (Photo credit to minouta17-01.blog.jp)

The panel is in English.

Geoff, was it this site?

The author says it was a licensed copy of the SP-600, but slightly improved. The SP-600 was selected because more advanced American receiver designs were not available for licensed manufacture.

BTW, to anyone visiting Japanese language radio sites: Google translator will do a fair job, albeit with occasional weirdness and/or mistranslation. It's best to copy a large chunk of the original language rather than small snips. Larger samples give the translation program more context, it better understands what it's trying to translate. Stilted, precise technical documents make for better Google translations. What messes up the program is the use of idioms. And jokes. And irony.

Yes, that is the site. Lots of other interesting equipment shown but most of us are unlikely to ever acquire any!
