In the book "The Zenith Trans-Oceanic, the Royalty of Radios", by H.Bryant and N.Cones, we find the following:
A July 3, 1958 press release introduced the Royal 1000-D as a version of the basic Royal 1000, but with a $25 option providing a 9th band (long wave) for "CAA weather / navigation".
The Royal 1000 and the Royal 1000-D were advertised and sold simultaneously.
