National DX-365? "Wide Sonic Super" 2 speaker rx

Howdy all!

I am looking for information on what appears to be a Japanese SW/MW rx that
I bought at a local thrift store.  It is 20 inches wide and the case is a
blue/green plastic, table model radio.

I notice the patent info and schematic on the bottom are both in Japanese
and what I _think_ is the National logo also in Japanese.  All it says on
the front is " National 2 Speaker" "Wide Sonic Super" on the bottom it says
DX-365 on the schematic.  It covers 540-1650 and 3.8 to 12.  The case is
cracked several places, but it is all tube and _works GREAT_!

If anyone has any info on this unit, I'd be tickled!  I'd like to find out
the year, model (for certain!) and anything else :-)

73!

It was probably made made Matshushita Electric of Japan (Panasonic,
Technics, Quasar, etc).

They sold many products under the name National or National Panasonic
outside of the United States.

Due to the existance of the National Radio Co of Malden, Mass (makers
of the ham radio equipment and components), Matshushita was prohibited
from using the National name in the U.S.

Your radio is probably 1960's vintage.
