A Centena Group Company


Compact, the smallest in the world!
The JSB-196 can be installed in an convenient location abroad fishing vessels, yatch and workboats of all sizes, and itsÕ high quality communication is achieved by the stabilized output power and DSP Digital Signal Processing technologies.
Easy Operation with Jog Dial and Large, Clear LCD
Changing Frequency, communication mode, power output, squelch, AGC, etc, is easy with the Jog Dial, back-lit keypad and large Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
Wide Frequency Range
Covering fully the HF marine band 1.6 to 29.9999MHz for transmission and 0.1 to 29.9999MHz for reception, the JSB-196 also is programmed with all ITU channels for easy use.
DSC Class A Terminal for Voluntary Fitting (option)
200 Programmable Memory Channels
User definable channels are stored in a non-volatile memory that can be easily and quickly accessed with the Jog Dial. The programmable channels are stored in groups of 10 for easy scanning, with a maximum of 20 channels per group.
Operation Mode
In addition to USB/LSB SSB radiotelephone and more telegraph, HF e-mail and DSC are available with external modems.
HF e-mail Compatibility (Option)
The global e-mail service is an inexpensive and reliable marine HF e-mail service. The twenty coast stations around the world are connected via the internet to a central message processing system which delivers the e-mails generated from the optional onboard personal computer and dedicated modem.
