Initial ohmic heating experiments in JT-60 were performed for a three month period of April-June 1985. A maximum plasma current of 1.6 MA was obtained for both divertor and limiter discharges. Low-q discharges of qeff=2.5 and high density discharges of 4.8*1019 m-3 in line-averaged density were obtained in the divertor configuration. In divertor discharges radiated loss from the main plasma can be kept at 20-30% of the ohmic input.
