 I have the NRD-515 with the matching memory unit and speaker. The previous owner installed the optional bandwidth filter, headphone jack and memory back up battery pack. This robust radio is built like a brick and is as close to 'boatanchor' as a Japanese radio could get. I just love the feel and capability of this receiver.
 The later NRD/NSD series units may have had more bells and whistles, but the 515 is a legend. They hold their value well as the asking prices are quite high.
 I have been on the JRC archives website hosted by qth.net, but it has been quiet lately. Maybe someone there has scanned a service manual?

It is probably quiet because our radios are so dated and because very few of us are
using the NRD and NSD combos. A shame, really. I was always hoping someone would
come up with a DDS VFO replacement that would address the 100Hz tuning steps. That
is my main issue with these radios, especially on CW.

I often wonder how many of the NSD transmitters were ever produced?  And I'd
be curious if anyone ever paired the NRD505 with a NSD515....

i was wondering if some one could put a value on my 515 line up im getting a s9+ signal of mess from next doors broadband bt vision.Friends at the radio club are saying add a modern noise blanker but to me thats defeating the object of owning a classic radio so i think it needs to go to a new shack where it can be used rather than collect dust.
NHD 518 MEMORY UNIT
NRD 515 RECEIVER
NSD 515 TRANSMITTER (no mic)
NCM 515 CONTROLLER
NBD 515 PSU
NVA 515 SPEAKER

All in good condition and working perfectly,i dont have any mic or manuals for this but can be found online,the only boxes i have are for the transmitter and psu .You wont find this line up coming up for grabs very often especially with a transmitter included
thanks in advance john
