The Super Radio, made for years under the GE name and for its last
year or so of manufacture under the RCA name, is no longer
manufactured anywhere by anyone. You can probably still buy used ones
on eBay, though. I have a used one that stopped working without
warning less than a year ago; its problem appears to be in the
varactor tuning.

In any event, the Super Radio (all versions--1, 2, 3GE, and 3RCA) was
a completely analog radio. Any receiver that can receive HD Radio
would be a 100% different design. I guess the manufacturer might be
able to save the three letters RCA from the end-of-life analog Super
Radio 3
