The Japan Radio Company JST-135 is a grade-A transceiver providing commercial level performance with 160 to 10 meter amateur band coverage in all modes (AM/FM/SSB/CW/RTTY). Receive coverage is 100 kHz to 30 MHz with 10 Hz display. The 200 channel memory stores frequency, mode, AGC, ATT and bandwidth. The receiver front end uses a variable tuning system in which the double tuning circuit is continuously controlled by a microprocessor to vary the received frequency. This substantially attenuates undesired signals and enhances selectivity. The frequency synthesizer employs a one-chip direct digital 10 Hz synthesizer (DDS) IC, ensuring a high C/N and high speed response. The JST-135 supports full CW break-in, frequency sweep and scan, 200 memories, keypad entry and modular construction. There is a large, specially constructed heat sink on the rear panel. This radio requires 35 Amps at 13.8VDC for 150 watt operation. This radio supports transceive operation with the NRD-525 receiver (requires optional CFQ-3003 cable set and CMH-741).

Mic not included. Shown above with optional NFG-97 Tuner, NVT-58 Mic and NBD-520 Power supply.

The Japan Radio Company JST-135HP version includes these additional factory installed options:
CFL-243 Bandwidth Control, CDD-366 Notch Follow Unit, CMF-78 ECSS, CMH-742 Daughter Board, CGD-135 High Stability, NBD-520U Power Supply and NVT-58 Up-down Hand Mic.
