Established in 1915, the company has produced a wide variety of products including marine electronics, measuring equipment for telecommunications, broadcast radio equipment, and amateur radio equipment, including the JST-145dx/JST-245dx HF tranceivers, which were the last amateur radio transceivers produced by JRC, ending in 2002.
Even though these tranceivers have been out of production over 10 years, they still compete performance-wise with current high-end amateur tranceivers available from other amateur radio manufacturers today, and have become prized possessions of the hams that are fortunate enough to own one. JRC still supports these radios through 2015, per info on their website.
