Hans discovers a JRC NRD-630 on eBay

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Hans de Zeeuw (MM6HDZ), who writes:

Hi, Thomas here’s a message from bonny Scotland:

Yesterday I found at eBay a JRC NRD-630 receiver for auction. The receiver is located in London, UK and the seller ships worldwide:

An opportunity for people who are looking for this very rare receiver.

This is just the sort of receiver Dan Robinson could have in his collection!  Looks like the NRD-630 might fetch a hefty price at auction, but I wonder if it’ll exceed the original price (which I’m sure was also hefty!)?

Thanks, Hans.

Any Post readers own the JRC NRD-630? Please comment!

    Regarding the 630, very rare yes , with a 6khz filter it’s a little wide tho for swl dx. I know it also has a 3khz filter, which at the same time is too narrow. So think about that and what you are going to use it for.

      Actually, this is inaccurate. ML&S no longer has these. Next to the Panasonic RF 9000, Squires Sanders receivers, and a few others, this is at the top of the rarest radios list.

    Collectible because of it’s rarity. My only concern is the long term serviceability. It probably has a microprocessor to handle the buttons so the program prom may be the weak point. But anyhow I think it has more value than my Star Lite FM-820 portable.
