The Japan Radio Company NRD-525 follows in the proud tradition of the NRD-505 and NRD-515. This multimode receiver tunes from 90 kHz to 34 MHz with a 10 Hz digital display. Four independent filter positions are available with a 4 kHz and 2 kHz filter standard. Select stations via manual tuning, up-down tuning, scanning, keypad entry or 200 channel memories. Advanced refinements include: Passband Tuning, Notch Filter, Scan/Sweep, Clock Timer, effective Noise Blanker, Dimmer and Tone Control. The top panel features a built-in speaker. The rear panel has a selectable antenna input and timer relay contacts. The '525' employs modular construction as found on many JRC marine receivers such as the NRD-301. It also may be used in a transceive configuration with the JST-135 (requires optional CFQ-3003 cable set).
