KENWOOD TS-590-S transceiver all mode HF +6m
The new KENWOOD all mode transceiver combines exceptional receiver performance and ease of use.
With its remarkable RX performance it should delight all radio amateurs - from very young beginners to experienced DXers. Among the many attractive features of the new TS-590S an excellent dynamic range is achieved, even if adjacent undesired strong signals are present. The TS-590S is also equipped with a 32-bit floating point DSP, also incorporated is a unique IF AGC. These and other innovative technologies are the basis for a first class reception performance.Moreover the TS-590S offers exemplary ease of use, to the intuitive menu system and large display, making all the information easy to read. It can be connected via a standard USB cable to a computer via the USB jack of the transceiver.
