The Japan Radio Company NRD-515 has earned a reputation for outstanding quality and unexcelled performance. This radio covers 100 kHz to 30 MHz in RTTY, CW, USB, LSB and AM modes. It is the unchallenged favorite for RTTY/FAX reception, coming from the marine radio tradition for which JRC is famous. A digital VFO with with phase lock loop synthesizer, combined with a photo-type rotary encoder results in tuning totally free of backlash, reading error and secular variation. The up-conversion double superheterodyne circuit virtually eliminates images. Frequency selection is very intuitive. Just select the desired MHz. and then tune the main tuning knob or rapid up-down switch. Effective passband tuning is provided to eliminate adjacent channel interference during CW/SSB reception. Selectivity can be selected independent of mode. A 6.0 and 2.4 kHz filters are provided as well as two additional slots for optional filters. Other refinements include: Attenuator, Delta (Fine) Tuning, S-Meter, Noise Blanker and External VFO. The rear panel has antenna input and speaker output jacks as well as a connector for the optional memory or keypad. This radio requires a speaker such as the optional NVA-515. Optional NDH-515 and NDH-518 external memories were offered. JRC eventually also produced the NCM-515 wired frequency controller. The NRD-515 was an affordable follow up to the NRD-505 and a perfect mate for the matching NSD-515 transmitter.
