Professional quality  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is another JRC product which was made for the amateur market but with professional quality both in construction, circuitry detail and performance.
Has all the important Rx features (PBT, Notch, adjustable NB, narrow CW filters, ANALOG S-meter etc) and they all work extremely well.
Quiet, analog sound from 2.7Khz SSB filter. No DSP nonsense....enough said.
SOLID - heavy duty modular construction, every board in its tin compartment with separate analog PS.
SSB Tx excellent with a very effective compressor. What else can I say, the only disadvantage is it is VERY rare to find in the used market!

Solid costruction  Time owned: more than 12 months
A solid Rig that I used for many years. I have also a Jst 245 and a Nrd 545 receiver. Powerful and easy to use is a nice machine, with a professional 'rock' looking. Without any blower and with a big radiating back trasmits quietly for hours, passing well the 100 W limit.
If you compare it with the big brothers the weak point is the receiver front end, a "wide band" not tuned. The tuned front end is the very best and incomparable feature of the big Jrc receivers. If you like to ear small stations emerging from the roof of silence you cannot use very big wide band antennas, or you have to do that managing to have a preselector for the receiver.
