What kind of receiver is designed for professional use, 24 hours per day? What kind of receiver is designed for intuitive, non-fatiguing monitoring by shipboard radio operators? Such a receiver is the Japan Radio Company's NRD-301A. The display is large. The knobs are large. Each mode has a separate button. Each bandwidth has a separate button. There are separate knobs for RF Gain, Volume, Pass Band Shift and Squelch. This receiver is a dream to operate and is arguably the most impressive looking radio we have ever offered. And performance, as you would expect, is second to none. Many user defined functions are available to tailor the receivers operation to your requirements.

Coverage is 90.000 to 29999.999 kHz with 1 Hz display in LSB, USB, AM, CW, DSB (AM), FSK (RTTY) and FAX modes. Supplied bandwidths include: 6, 3 and 0.5 kHz (0.3 and 1 kHz optional). The built in 300 channel memory stores: frequency, mode, bandwidth, AGC and ATT data. Scan and sweep are supported. Other refinements include: AF Filter, NB, Lock, Dimmer, Self-Test, AGC selection and front-firing built-in speaker. A built in self-test function is also featured. A spare parts kit including fuse, relay hex socket screw keys is included. The AC input supply voltage is user selectable from the back panel.

The NRD-301A is designed for mounting in a standard 19 inch commercial rack
