The Japan Radio Company NRD-345 offers J.R.C. performance and quality at a surprisingly affordable price. This incredibly attractive and compact radio delivers hour-after-hour of listening pleasure with high dynamic range and synchronous AM detection to help tame fading. Dual IF filters are supplied, with a third optional position available. (Installation of a third filter requires the CFQ-8673 Filter Board).

Tuning the radio is smooth as silk via the large indented main tuning knob. Of course keypad entry in kHz or MHz is also available. The easy-to-read LCD type display shows you the precise frequency to 10 Hz! The variable Noise Blanker is effective against pulse and ignition interference. The sophisticated memory system stores 100 channels with frequency, mode, AGC, attenuator, VFO, bandwidth and NB status parameters all stored. Both memory and frequency scanning are supported. The Clock-Timer function enables the radio to turn on and off at a specific time and the clock can be set for UTC or local time. The Tone Control, AGC and 20 dB Attenuator let you refine the signal to your personal taste. The NRD-345 has an analog S-meter.

Other refinements include an analog S-Meter, Tilt-Bar, Up/Down Tuning buttons, Dual VFOs and Dial Lock. Rear panel jacks include: External Speaker, Record Jack, FAX/RTTY Line Out and dB-25 RS-232C port. The rear panel features switch selectable switchable dual antenna inputs are featured to support both wire-type or coaxial-type lead ins. A built-in RS-232 port facilitates connecting a personal computer (4800 baud, 1 start bit, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit).
