Some slightly downgraded or modified shortwave receivers from Japan or Korea as well as receivers based on their own development have been sold in the Superstores of the American Tandy / RadioShack group under the label of RealisticDX.
Their early receivers have some similarities with the Japanese sets sold under Lafayette brand name.
As a response to Sony's first microprocessor controlled double conversion receiver ICF-2001, Uniden developed their CR-2021 - in the RadioShack variant of this set, the Realistic DX-400, You find a real analog S-meter instead of a chain if glowing LEDs.
