In the seventies and eighties, Russian multi band radios have been exported to Germany and western Europe, some of them via the German Democratic Republic or other tracks, in exchange to "hard currency".
These Russian sets usually come with a very rugged cabinet and offered pleasent audio due to their big speakers, but the dial marks can only be described as rudimentary and frequency finding was guesswork.
